We want to caution our customers about the potential risks of using certain sterilising tablets with the Dental pod that contain chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions.

Hypochlorite ions are highly reactive and can cause corrosion to the stainless steel tank of the Dental pod. This can result a shortened lifespan of the unit. Unfortunately, some oral appliance sterilising tablet brands contain chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions, making them unsuitable for use with the Dental pod.

As an example, oral appliance sterilising tablets that contain sodium dichloroisocyanurate or calcium hypochlorite can form hypochlorite ions when dissolved in water.

To ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your Dental pod, we highly recommend using Zima Dental's sterilising tablets. Our sterilising tablets are specially formulated to effectively sterilise oral appliances while maintaining the integrity of the Dental pod's stainless steel tank. They do not contain any chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions, so you can rest assured that your Dental pod is safe from corrosion.

We understand that some customers may have already purchased other brands of sterilising tablets that contain chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions. We encourage our customers to switch to Zima Dental's sterilising tablets to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of their Dental pod.

It's important to remember that proper maintenance of your Dental pod is crucial to its performance and lifespan. We recommend using Zima Dental's sterilising tablets as part of your regular cleaning routine.
