Protect your hands with latex-free dental gloves from GlovesMD! Dentists must wear gloves to prevent contamination of their hands when touching mucous membranes, blood, saliva or other potentially infectious materials. Dental gloves help prevent the transfer of microorganisms from your hands to patients. Our dental gloves are non-sterile, disposable, easy to don and are available in four sizes. GlovesMD offers vinyl, PVC and nitrile dental gloves in powdered and powder-free varieties.
With latex allergies on the rise, it’s essential to find dental gloves that provide the benefits of latex without any allergy-causing rubber proteins. Nitrile is a synthetic latex that’s a great alternative for those who suffer from latex allergies. Nitrile dentist gloves are extremely durable, and provide great tactile sensitivity. These dental gloves feature the tough, flexible protection of latex, without the allergenic properties that could harm you or your patients. Keep in mind that exposure to dental materials, such as glutaraldehyde, hydrogen peroxide and alcohol preparations, may weaken both latex and synthetic dental glove materials. Feel free to consult GlovesMD about the compatibility of our glove materials with various chemicals.
GlovesMD also offers vinyl dental gloves. While vinyl dentist gloves provide less sensitivity than latex, they are just as useful as exam gloves for dentists. Vinyl dentist gloves prevent cross-contamination, and provide increased resistance to oils and greases, solvents and most acetic and alkaloid chemicals, making them very useful for cleaning and decontamination. Vinyl dental gloves are also hypoallergenic, and the most affordable option when compared to other dentist gloves. Shop for GlovesMD dental gloves to cover all of your dental, oral surgery, orthodontic and periodontal office needs.
