WHY USE THE DAM

There are several advantages in using a dam, and each justifies the short time it takes an expert professional to apply it. In conservative dentistry, when using resins and other preparations requiring that humidity be kept under complete control, the dam ensures better and longerlasting results. The time spent assembling the dam is compensated for by quickening the subsequent steps. The dentist has perfect visibility and the patient receives maximum protection.

WHY USE VISION

The Vision kit is designed to maximize the advantages of the traditional dam. The black dam stands out better against the area of intervention and the 16:9 format makes application easier for the dentist and better protects the patient. The clamp coating makes cleaning and resin removal faster, and using a limited number of clamps makes the selection of the best one easier, ensuring effectiveness. A single box contains all the tools needed to perform any conservative therapy isolation intervention.

TIPS AND TRICKS

HOW TO USE RUBBER DAM CORRECTLY

Method no. 4, rubber dam and winged clamp at the same time.

THE PLACEMENT

You can put the latex first, first the clamp or rubber dam and clamp at the same time. The successful placement, in the last case, depends mainly on how handy the operator is. In this case the use of winged clamps is recommended.

common mistakes rubber dam isolation

COMMON MISTAKES

Rubber gets nipped with the clamp, or it is not adequately adapted in the sulcus, or even rubber tears alongside the perforation. If the failure cannot be corrected, placement of a new rubber means the solution.

Active orthodontic is not a real contraindication

HOW SHOULD ISOLATION BE DONE?

As far as possible the teeth holding the clamps should be anesthetized, the the amalgam fillings should always be removed in isolation and it is useful the application of anesthetic gel on the rest of the teeth because of the invagination (adaptation into sulcus) – Active orthodontic is not a real contraindication.

isolations rubber dam

RECOMMENDATION

– FRONT teeth the isolation of the entire frontal area is recommended, in most of the case (from 4 to 4).
– PREMOLAR teeth isolation of only 2 teeth is rare when treating MO or OD cavities. Basically, I prefer to work in quadrant isolation.
– MOLARS, the isolation of the entire molar area is the minimum isolation requirement!

Starting the daily use of the rubber dam is the beginning of wisdom. When the rubber dam comes through the door, slipshod methods go out of the window. It marks the beginning of better dentistry.

FOUR LEVEL OF INVERSION

A GOOD ISOLATION: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Level 1 – AIR INVERSION

The easiest way of getting inversion is by blowing air around the cervical area and, at the same time, delicately pushing the rubber into the sulcus with a spatula.

Level 2 – INVERSION WITH DENTAL FLOSS

When air inversion just doesn’t work at all, a strategy to invert the rubber dam in the sulcus is to use a dental floss placed around the tooth; with apical pressure and slow movements the rubber dam should roll and be inverted.

Level 3 – INVERSION WITH KNOT LIGATURES

This technique provides two main advantages: one is that the floss pushes the rubber deep in the sulcus, close to the epithelial insertion, and second, the floss tightens around the tooth and holds the rubber dam in place during the restorative procedure. This option of isolation can only work if the destruction limit doesn’t affect the epithelial attachment.

Level 4 – INVERSION USING TEFLON TAPE

When we use this technique for inversion, it means that we have some problems with isolation. By using teflon tape, we can place the rubber deep subgingivally in the sulcus and place it under the limit of our preparation.

TRAINING TIPS

EXPLAIN RUBBER DAM

EXPLAIN

Illustrating the benefits of using a dental dam creates empathy and helps the patient accept the practice and reduces the perception of discomfort

ANALYSE

ANALYSE

Accurate analysis and planning, including the choice of the teeth to be isolated, the clamp to be used and the dam application technique, leads to reduced intervention time and improved safety for both the patient and the professional.

VALIDATE

VALIDATE

The choice of the clamp requires assessment: after securing the clamp with dental floss to prevent the patient from swallowing it, the clamp is positioned and mechanically tested for anchorage.

PUNCH

PUNCH

Time to use the marker, the dam template, the rubber dam and the forceps to punch the latter according to the isolation plan.

PLACE

PLACE

Apply the dental dam using the clamp-engaging forceps and the dam frame. If necessary, use dental floss for interproximal placement and a blunt instrument to tuck the edges of the rubber dam into the gingival sulcus.

REMOVE

REMOVE

Carefully stretch the rubber dam and, if necessary, cut interdental septa. Once the clamp is disengaged and the procedure is over, the golden rule suggests asking the patient about the overall experience.
