Dentanomic - Cleaning and Honing

Honing ...

Sharpening implies re-engineering of a blunt blade edge. Honing is a gentler, frequently used technique which will maintain the sharp edges on your blades.

Gentle honing makes your blades last longer - but honing with a bad technique might blunt your blades so be careful. Honing should be a daily procedure and is best done as part of your cleaning protocol.

Cleaning ... 

Dentanomic instruments are easy to clean and sterilise. Don't forget Dentanomic autoclave trays make it easy to keep track of everything during the cleaning cycle and prevent scratches and damage.

DON'T DO THIS ... (our most common cleaning problem!) Dentanomic handles are made from high grade aluminium. The protective anodised finish can be stripped off if alkaline cleaning solutions are used. Check that your cleaning solutions are suitable for steel and aluminium. Occasionally tap water can be very alkaline - this can be resolved by using distilled (deionised water) for cleaning instruments.

Spotting on blades and trays is most commonly caused by chloride deposits from tap water. Use distilled water for cleaning and rinsing to prevent this.
