Unclean and Unsterile Surgical Instruments Put Patients at Risk

Torque wrenches belong to the range of indispensable tools employed during implant surgery or restoration. The cleaning risk factor is addressed by MDR (EU) 2017/745 (MDR), which regulates medical devices in the European Union countries. And in future, all torque wrenches must comply to the MDR requirements regarding safe cleaning, disinfection, and/or re-sterilization. 

Time pressure while ensuring patient safety can be challenging. And really, how do we prefer to prioritize our time? Most dental assistants would rather spend more time on patient care – and less on dismantling, cleaning and assembling tools.

“I save up to 80% of my cleaning time by using a torque wrench with a maximum of 3 parts. I have a much better feeling of the safety for patients and cleaning procedure that follows the IFU´s - compared to cleaning a tool consisting of up to 10 parts where the risk of making a mistake is much higher.”

Carolin Gustavsson, Surgical Nurse, Special Clinic for Oral Surgery, Mölndal Hospital, Sweden
