What is a rubber dam?
0 May 21, 2015

Rubber dam is an integral part of all my restorative work. It allows me to isolate the surgical field when I’m working on teeth. It provides better visibility for me (in conjunction with magnification loops) and moisture control (very important when doing adhesive dentistry). The rubber dam also prevents dental materials and water from being swallowed or aspirated by the patient. So although I am a dentist, I really don’t work in my patient’s mouths – I work on their teeth in front of an isolating screen. The rubber dam allows me to do the best work possible!
