Quick Reference

Protective hand covering used as a cross-infection barrier by healthcare professionals while performing dental procedures. Surgical gloves are single-use disposable, close-fitting, and thin to maximize operator digital sensitivity; the majority are ambidextrous and are made of latex, vinyl, or nitrile. The use of powdered gloves has been discontinued to reduce the risk of an allergic response. Reusable heavy-duty gloves are preferred for cleaning environmental surfaces or when scrubbing contaminated instruments, where operator digital sensitivity is less important.

Subjects: Dentistry.
