CARE AND ATTENTION

"I'VE CHOSEN ANTHOS. FOR THE PATIENT, FOR MY TEAM, FOR ME"

Anthos has always been extremely attentive to hygiene. Consequently, dentists can proceed in full respect of proper working practices and ensure the patient's wellbeing via the use of instruments that provide excellent performance while safeguarding health every minute of the day. Anthos aims for all-round wellbeing, from design of active systems, from the details that make cleaning easy to the selection of materials compliant with quality standards, meeting the German quality standards, as DVGW certification for water quality demonstrates. When its comes to the Anthos approach to hygiene, every patient and every member of medical personnel can count on principle-driven professionalism.

PROTECTION AGAINST LEGIONNAIRE’S DISEASE


The automatic W.H.E. system, when used with Peroxy Ag+ at 600 ppm (like H2O2), acts against all water-borne contaminants, including Legionella: tests on the device have demonstrated an 85% reduction in Legionella in transiting water [4] and, thanks to a long-lasting disinfectant effect requiring no additional task, a reduction in Legionella of 5 logarithms in an hour [3].

Moreover, the W.H.E. system, when combined with a daily intensive disinfection cycle with BIOSTER, ensures excellent hygiene of the water delivered by the instruments [3].


W.H.E. - CONTINUOUS DISINFECTION

The W.H.E. system automatically adds Peroxy Ag+ to mains water at the dental unit inlet at a concentration of 600 ppm (like H2O2); this acts against all water-borne contaminants, including Legionella, as demonstrated by in vitro testing at this concentration. The disinfectant continues to act in the tubing: in vitro tests have shown bacterial concentration reductions of up to 5 logarithms in 40 minutes of contact, as normally occurs during tasks that do not involve water consumption and during inter-treatment pauses. Repeated checks over a three-month period on a working dental unit have shown that, with regular use of the W.H.E. and daily application of an intensive BIOSTER disinfection cycle, bacteria counts were constantly maintained at zero, clearly demonstrating that water delivered with the W.H.E. offers outstanding hygiene.
In addition to continuous action against entry of water-borne contaminants and permanent action in the tubing, the W.H.E. system has an important secondary function: it separates the dental unit water circuit from the mains water supply via an EN 1717-compliant inlet air gap device.


BIOSTER. AN OPTIMAL PROCESS

BIOSTER is a hygiene device that carries out intensive disinfection of dental unit tubing with Peroxy Ag+ (H2O2 3%) - the excellent effectiveness of which has been demonstrated by numerous scientific studies - enhanced with silver ions that boost the biocide action.
Studies made by Anthos demonstrate that a dental unit equipped with the W.H.E. and BIOSTER systems ensures the microbiological quality of the delivered water with just one intensive disinfection cycle at the end of each day.
In another clinical study, a working dental unit with a continuous W.H.E. system and daily execution of a BIOSTER cycle with Peroxy Ag+ disinfectant kept the bacteria count in the delivered water at zero.

FLUSHING

 

The Flushing function carries out a complete change of the water in the tubing with a timed liquid flow. It doesn't perform any disinfection but simply carries out fast replacement of liquid in the circuit.

This is particularly useful for eliminating stagnant liquid from tubing after the dental unit has been idle for some time (e.g. at the start of the working day).

ACTIVE HYGIENE S.H.S.

ACTIVE HYGIENE S.H.S.

SIMPLIFIED INDEPENDENT WATER FEED SYSTEM

The S.H.S. system allows water to be supplied to the dental unit via a dedicated bottle and provides two functions:
• Water feed to dental unit independently from mains water (bottle with a grey stripe)
• Tubing disinfection cycle performed in semi-automatic or manual mode*

PASSIVE HYGIENE

PASSIVE HYGIENE

CUSPIDOR BOWL

• The cuspidor bowl has no interstices and is easy to disinfect
• Cup and bowl fill units are removable and can be cold-sterilised
• Air gap between rinse jet and drain is designed to prevent contamination in the event of a fault
