Cavex ImpreSafe is a highly concentrated disinfectant for alginate, polyether and silicone impressions. The solution is aldehyde-free and has a neutral odor. The manufacturer states that Cavex ImpreSafe needs only three minutes to kill bacteria, fungi and viruses and has no negative effect on the impression surface. The system includes a disinfection container, one liter of disinfection fluid concentrate, shipping bags and a timer. Each liter of concentrate makes 33 liters of usable solution. Cavex ImpreSafe was evaluated by 24 consultants in over 800 uses. It received a 96% clinical rating.
Cavex ImpreSafe is easy for dental staff to integrate into their daily workflow. The three-minute immersion time is faster than that of other immersion disinfectants, and the timer included with the kit encourages compliance with soaking for the recommended time. Consultants commented on the lack of residue after rinsing. Seventy-one percent of consultants reported that Cavex ImpreSafe was better than their current method of impression disinfection, 79% would switch to Cavex ImpreSafe and 67% would recommend it.
Rinse the impression before disinfection.
