Why We Invested in Crosstex DentaPure®


Paradise Dental Associates has recently invested in Crosstex DentaPure®, leading technology in dental unit waterline treatment. They have won multiple awards and have genuinely revolutionized dental unit waterline treatment by providing safe water for 365 days and/or 240 liters of water. Here, we wanted to explore why we have invested in this technology and learn more about DentaPure®. 

Why is it Necessary?

Research conducted found that the narrow dental waterline tubing leads to biofilm, a complex mix of bacteria, fungi, and algae that stick together and become almost gel-like. Once this starts, they continue to grow and will become a visible slime. This will ultimately pose a safety threat to your patients and your staff. 

What Happens Without DentaPure®?

The biofilm or bacteria can lead to severe problems for patients and staff. The microorganisms building up in dental waterlines can cause mycobacterial infections, including cervicofacial nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) and cervical lymphadenopathy. This became a significant problem for children who came in contact with bacteria-filled waterlines. There is even one fatal case connected to biofilm.

How Does it Work?

Though the most advanced system in the industry, the way it works is quite simple. The DentaPure® Cartridge uses non-allergenic iodinated resin beads, and as the water passes through, the resin releases 2 – 6 ppm of atomic isotopes of elemental iodine (I2) during a typical dental treatment. These isotopes control the bacteria, keeping dental unit water safe for 365 days! The iodine used is not known to cause any sensitivity or allergic reactions. Fun fact: DentaPure® uses the same technology developed for NASA to ensure that water consumed in space is safe from harmful levels of bacteria and many other harmful organisms!
