We want to caution our customers about the potential risks of using certain sterilizing 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 in a shortened lifespan of the unit. Unfortunately, some oral appliance sterilizing tablet brands contain chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions, making them unsuitable for use with the Dental pod.

As an example, oral appliance sterilizing 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 sterilizing tablets. Our sterilizing tablets are specially formulated to effectively sterilize 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 sterilizing tablets that contain chemicals that can form hypochlorite ions. We encourage our customers to switch to Zima Dental's sterilizing 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 sterilizing tablets as part of your regular cleaning routine.
