Usually every dental clinic uses sterilized instruments. So don't worry. As your doc if they are sterilized or not.

Do not worry all instruments are well sterilized. Before and after every patient and plus dentists use fresh gloves in every patient they see. So do not worry .nothing will happen to you. Infact dentists are at risk of getting infection because they deal with patients on day to day basis .when they actually do an extraction or a root canal treatment or cleaning. Or even an implant .for that matter.

We do use certain instruments to explore your teeth and gum related problems, it should be always sterilized and that is ethical. To follow ethics or not is completely depends on operator's personal thoughts. You can not control it. Unethical behaviour is mostly practiced by quakes.
