How long does HIV survive?
How long will HIV survive in air on a dental instrument for example.

it's not an air born disease as sure it cannot survive more a second out side the body

Very short viable infectious span at room temperatures...measured in less than a minute. On dental equipment...nope, not going to happen...takes warm blood or body fluids to do that. Even in body fluid, if it gets cold, the hiv cannot infect any longer.

HIV survives in a person's body throughout his life as it cannot be fought by our immune system.HIV directly affects our immune system by destroying all white-blood cells and the person is prone to all dangerous diseases .

Its not an air born virus only in blood or bodily fluids

Since HIV is a virus - it can last for a very long time on a surface. The way we kill it in the laboratory is to wash the tops of the laboratory bench top in a 10% clorox solution for 10 minutes or put our tools into and incubator and sterilize them. Once the virus has been oxidized and denatured it is no longer viable.

To Answer your question more specifically scientist have found frozen cadavers that died from the 1918 Spanish Flu virus and they have been able to take tissue sample and regrow the Spanish Flu virus - so what is that - it is about 88 years that the Spanish Flu Virus has survived. I would guess that the Aids virus is just as hardy.

So make sure your dentist sterilizes your dental instruments before using them on you.

For the rest of your life. There isn't a cure...yet.

HIV survives for a very short time outside the body -- mere seconds at most. Unless you're going to a VERY cheap dentist, you have nothing to worry about.
