Objective To investigate the effect of electro-chemically activated water on biofilm contamination in dental unit water lines.Design Thirteen dental units fitted with independent water systems and used for 12 years with distilled water were divided into two groups, A and B. At the start, one week later, and again four weeks later, the bacterial counts in water from all units were determined. Also specimens of tubing were taken from the units at the beginning and at the end of the study for SEM… CONTINUE READING
