Newly revised and updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend adoption of procedures to improve the microbiological quality of water used in dental treatment. These recommendations represent the consensus of experts from a wide range of scientific and clinical disciplines and are based on the best currently available evidence. Dentists and the manufacturers of dental equipment must consider the infection control, occupational health and risk-management implications of biofilm colonization in dental equipment, and take appropriate measures to provide water of appropriate microbiological quality clinical procedures.
