Benefits of post-exposure prophylaxis

Posted on 6/19/2023 by Evan
Benefits of post-exposure prophylaxisProphylaxis dental is the more technical term for getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist. Prophylaxis dental is a basic cleaning procedure that cleans your teeth as thoroughly as possible. Prophylaxis dental is your first line of defense when it comes to waging a war against the start and further progression of multiple oral ailments, including both gingivitis and periodontal disease, for example. It's one of the most important dental treatments that stop a problem before it can even start. It's extremely important to have done twice per year at the bare minimum, our dentist may recommend additional cleanings based on your patient profile, however.

Control of post-exposure prophylaxis

It should be initiated as soon as possible, within hours, and no later than 72 hours following the potential exposure. It is recommended to start PEP within 6 h of suspected exposure. Sterilization is one way commonly used which involves the use of a physical or chemical procedure to destroy all microorganisms including substantial numbers of resistant bacterial spores. • STERILE - Free from all living microorganisms; usually described as a probability (e.g., the probability of a surviving microorganism being 1 in 1 million).

Disinfection involves the destruction of pathogenic and other kinds of microorganisms by physical or chemical means. Disinfection is less lethal than sterilization, because it destroys the majority of recognized pathogenic microorganisms, but not necessarily all microbial forms (e.g., bacterial spores).

Disinfection is also another way where a chemical agent is used on inanimate objects to destroy virtually all recognized pathogenic microorganisms, but not necessarily all microbial forms (e.g., bacterial endospores). Asepsis: Asepsis is the state of being free from disease-causing contaminants (such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites). The term asepsis also often refers to those practices used to promote or induce asepsis in an operative field in surgery or medicine to prevent infection.
