Is there something better than a spray for disinfection of alginate impressions prior to pouring them so I can feel more confident that the entire impression has been disinfected?
There is a great new immersion disinfectant that is recommended for alginate impressions, silicones and polyethers called Cavex ImpreSafe (Cavex Holland BV). It works in only three minutes and does not negatively affect the surface of the impression. It comes with a timer to encourage use according to manufacturer’s instructions. It is packaged as a concentrate to mix 33 liters of solution, an immersion container, shipping bags, and a timer. It got the highest rating by Clinical Consultants of THE DENTAL ADVISOR.
