How To Best Choose The Right Disposable Medical
Gloves
2
What purpose does a medical glove serve?
  • Dentistry is a high-risk profession. The chance
    of practitioners and patients being exposed to
    unseen threats is always present. Thus, safety
    measures aimed at lowering these probabilities
    encourage medical staff to constantly use
    disposable gloves as a part of their daily
    routines.
  • It is an indisputable fact that medical gloves
    protect against dangerous chemicals and microbes.
    Additionally, variations of medical gloves made
    from different polymers possess special
    properties for specific purposes. Hence,
    determining what kind of medical glove should be
    used in your dental clinic should be an essential
    part of the risk reduction process.

What are the different glove types?
  • There are several variants of disposable medical
    gloves that possess different levels of
    protection, comfort, and durability. In the
    medical field, the most-used gloves are made from
    latex, nitrile, or chloroprene.
  • Latex gloves
  • This type of disposable glove comes from a
    substance found on mature rubber trees. Its
    ability to perfectly fit a users hand while
    enabling precise and high-tactile sensitivity
    makes latex-made gloves the go-to disposable
    option across industries.
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Nitrile Gloves Medical Grade are superior to
    other types when it comes to puncture and
    chemical resistance, as well as protection from
    viruses.

Additional Glove Options
  • There are various types of alternative disposable
    gloves, many coming with extra specifications
    that allow users added protection.
  • Powdered gloves/Powder-free gloves
  • Powdered gloves are easier to wear. However, they
    do tend to be messier. Meanwhile, the lack of
    residue in powder-free gloves reduces the chances
    of an allergic reaction, but takes a bit longer
    to put on.
  • Examination gloves and surgical gloves
  • These gloves are medical-grade and generally used
    for actual procedures. Their specific purpose
    requires that these gloves undergo a
    sterilization process that reduces the threat
    from cross-contamination. The only difference
    between exam gloves and surgical gloves is the
    latter being of a higher-quality grade that
    offers more precise sizing and higher tactile
    sensitivity.

Whats the difference between Industrial and
Medical Grade Gloves
  • Medical Grade gloves carry that label which makes
    them acceptable in surgical and medical
    applications, while Industrial Grade does not
    have that certification, so they would not be
    approved for use in hospitals. You can easily
    distinguish medical grade gloves from industrial
    gloves by the labeling on the box.
  • Industrial Grade gloves are suitable for
    industrial applications and do not meet the
    requirements needed to be titled Medical Grade
    gloves and or exam gloves. Based on this fact, we
    know that Industrial Grade gloves are not
    automatically stronger than Medical Grade gloves.
