One of the most evident advantages of using rubber dam clamp is protecting the patient's airway from unintended aspiration or swallowing of equipment, irrigants, and debris. It is difficult to defend a patient who ingests or, worse yet, inhales dental debris or devices, such as an endodontic file or bur, which could have been avoided with the use of a dental dam. The instruments or materials that were mistakenly consumed or inhaled over the past ten years were endodontic files/burs, filling materials, implant screwdrivers, prostheses (crowns/veneers/implants), and scaler tips, according to research. To lessen the likelihood of these incidents, they advise using dental dams, high-volume suction, and regular equipment maintenance.

It is well recognized that, whether or not coolant spray is present, the air turbine can atomize saliva, blood, and crevicular fluid, leading to aerosol-generating exposure. There is evidence that using a 3-in-1 syringe to inject water or compressed air can also result in the production of AGE. The use of rubber dam clamp placement has been shown to reduce bacterial contamination. Dental dams will also guarantee aseptic isolation of the tooth or teeth undergoing dental treatment. This is crucial for endodontic therapy since the prognosis of the procedure depends on treating endodontic infection and preventing unintentional nosocomial re-infection from the oral cavity. Additionally, there is substantial proof that a significant prognostic factor for pulp therapy is the sterility of the exposed dentin-pulp complex before sealing with a bioactive cement. Endodontic therapy without the use of a dental dam has worse success/survival rates. Vital pulp therapy trials have also produced results that are comparable. Use sodium hypochlorite or other endodontic irrigants only when a dental dam is in place.

Why choose us

The soft tissues surrounding the tooth or teeth retract when rubber dam clamp placement is applied, making access easier and preventing saliva from contaminating the treatment area or fogging the mirror As a result, four-handed dentistry is made simpler, and treatment is more efficient and less labor-intensive. Before the dental dam is put in place, patients should be made aware of its advantages and told that they should continue to breathe normally through their nose and swallow normally while it is there.

During lengthy treatments, patients frequently nod off, which is an unofficial sign that they have accepted the dental dam. They are highly effective at reducing the risk of contamination from blood and saliva, leaving only the germs from the tooth itself and aerosolized tooth and restorative material fragments as contamination sources. Many dental procedures cannot be performed with this, but when they can, it is strongly advised. In reality, the use of dental dam for debonding fixed appliance orthodontic brackets has recently been advocated as a method to limit exposures to aerosols, despite its original objective of preserving patients' lungs during the removal of brittle ceramic brackets.
