    Experts in the Management of Dental Practice Waste

    Dental clinics offer various standard procedures, including fillings, extractions, and root canals. However, the dental staff is often exposed to hazardous medical waste, such as sharps and body fluids, which can transmit diseases. Whether you’re a small dental practice in your local area or a nationwide network of dentists, our waste management solutions are customised to meet the unique needs of dental speciality providers, such as oral surgeons, endodontists, and orthodontists. We partner with experienced dental waste professionals to provide your dental practice with high-quality dental laboratory waste disposal services, enabling you to concentrate on your patients.

    The dental industry is often associated with mercury which, if not treated properly, can cause major health and environmental problems. Any direct contact with the waste can cause severe irritations which may or may not be cured. Thus, it is important to ensure that laboratory waste is managed only by experts and is disposed of through prescribed methods of UK law. Any deviation can prove to be lethal and may result in fines as well.

    Dental Laboratory waste includes tooth boxes, amalgam chair waste containers, bridges and crowns containers, cap guard container sizes, sludge drum containers, x-ray developer containers, amalgam separators, and gypsum containers. A major chunk of the waste includes sharps waste, amalgam waste and pharmaceutical waste.

    TCW prioritises the safety of your staff, patients, and the environment, thus, we follow regulatory guidelines that meet UK law.

    Dental laboratory waste disposal is generally done through two methods: incineration, autoclaving and landfill or dumping. It is the toxicity of the waste which determines the disposal method. If the waste is not hazardous then landfill or dumping usually takes place. However, if the waste is hazardous then incineration is the best way to protect the general public and the environment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The key to managing dental laboratory waste is the proper collection, segregating, storing and disposal. It is the duty of the dental clinic to take precautions such as gloves, PPE suits and masks whilst managing dental waste to avoid any mishaps in the entire process.

    Any clinic that generates dental waste, especially amalgam waste would need proper dental laboratory waste disposal. This would also include those wastes which are toxic to the general public and the environment as well.

    The dental waste is usually pushed down the municipal drain or septic pipe that leads directly to biomedical waste boxes, meant for high-temperature incineration. However, in the case of amalgam extraction, there is a unique box given which needs to be filled and given for disposal.
