There are three main categories of medical gloves suitable for use in a dental office, dental practice or dental laboratory.
Disposable Latex Gloves – Made of natural rubber with the highest level of comfort, tactile sensitivity and flexibility. Latex gloves offer the best protection against viruses and bacteria. Many healthcare professionals are now choosing latex-free gloves such as nitrile, chloroprene and vinyl as latex allergies have become more common.
Disposable Nitrile Gloves – Made of synthetic material and safe for people with latex allergies. Nitrile gloves are durable, stretchy, comfortable, offer a high degree of protection against viruses as well as protection against chemicals.
Disposable Chloroprene Gloves – Made of synthetic material, have similar fit and feel to latex with durability and strength similar to nitrile.
Disposable Vinyl Gloves – Made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) are tear and puncture resistant and usually the least expensive.
