🧤Let’s #TBT to the years when the idea of wearing gloves seemed 🍌🍌🤦♀️. .
[Info is from an article by Lathan (2010), Caroline Hampton Halsted: the first to use rubber gloves in the operating room] ➡️ Link in bio.
🧤In the early 1800s, hospitals were known as “houses of death” [rampant infections]☠️.
🧤Surgeons would wear one coat [“covered in blood and pus”] for a countless number of surgeries. The stains were considered “badges of honor” 🤢.
🧤This guy, [image👆] Dr. Joseph Lister, published “Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery”. ⤵️.
He began to use 5% carbolic acid solution for instruments ➕ wounds. Surgeons were asked to wash their hands before/after surgery with this solution.
🧤Dr. Gustav Neuber  sterilized instruments/OR field➕was the first to require sterile gowns/caps.
🧤Dr. Jan Mikulicz  was the first to use a surgical mask.
🧤Check out the article to read about the story of Dr. Halstead ➕ his wife, Caroline. ➡️ Halstead commissioned @goodyear to create a pair of rubber gloves to prevent Caroline (an OR nurse, shown above) from getting dermatitis . As the gloves improved dexterity, everyone eventually wanted a pair!!
🌀Dr. Joseph Bloodgood  “published a report on over 450 hernia operations with a near 100% drop in the infection rate by using gloves”.

Do you want to understand better your Dentist??? What Are the Different Parts of a Tooth?
Crown — the top part of the tooth, and the only part you can normally see.
Gumline — where the tooth and the gums meet. Without proper brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can build up at the gumline, leading to gingivitis and gum disease.
Root — the part of the tooth that is embedded in bone.
Enamel — Enamel is the hardest, most mineralized tissue in the body — yet it can be damaged by decay if teeth are not cared for properly.
Dentin — the layer of the tooth under the enamel. If decay is able to progress its way through the enamel, it next attacks the dentin — where millions of tiny tubes lead directly to the dental pulp.
Pulp — the soft tissue where ypu find the nerve. If tooth decay reaches the pulp, you usually feel pain.
What Are the Different Types of Teeth?
Every tooth has a specific job or function (use the dental arch in this section to locate and identify each type of tooth): Incisors — used for cutting food.
Canines — sometimes called cuspids, these teeth are shaped like points (cusps) and are used for tearing food.
Premolars — these teeth have two pointed cusps on their biting surface and are sometimes referred to as bicuspids. The premolars are for crushing and tearing.
Molars — used for grinding, these teeth have several cusps on the biting surface

Monday to start the diet?!?!😂😂😂 What's wrong with sugary snacks, anyway?
Sugary snacks taste so good — but they aren't so good for your teeth or your body. The candies, cakes, cookies and other sugary foods that kids love to eat between meals can cause tooth decay. Some surgary foods have a lot of fat in them, too.
How do sugars attack your teeth?
Invisible germs called bacteria live in your mouth all the time. Some of these bacteria form a sticky material called plaque on the surface of the teeth. When you put sugar in your mouth, the bacteria in the plaque gobble up the sweet stuff and turn it into acids. These acids are powerful enough to dissolve the hard enamel that covers your teeth. That's how cavities get started. If you don't eat much sugar, the bacteria can't produce as much of the acid that eats away enamel.
When you're deciding about snacks, think about:
The number of times a day you eat sugary snacks
How long the sugary food stays in your mouth
The texture of the sugary food (Chewy? Sticky?) Remember to:
Choose sugary foods less often
Avoid sweets between meals
Eat a variety of low or non-fat foods from the basic groups
Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after snacks and meals
The Single Use team had a great time at the ADA Queensland’s Brisbane CPD event which highlighted the Recent Developments in Infection Control, presented by Professor Laurie Walsh.
We had the pleasure of meeting with attendees and presenting our instruments as an alternative to reusable instruments and the sterilisation process, allowing clinics to implement higher infection control standards.
Presenting alongside us was Professor Ian Meyers who also discussed the items within clinics which are strictly classed as single-use and why they cannot and should not be reprocessed.
We look forward to presenting at future CPD events held by the ADA QLD branch, if you would be interested in attending these you can find more detailed information about each event here:
If you're worried about indoor Mould problems get it tested & fixed. You don't need to continue living in a damp & mould affected home.
We do onsite inspections, review of other written reports (expert witness/consultancy) and DIY lab testing.
