The use of rubber dams is particularly useful for the adhesive technique, whereby dentures are secured with plastic adhesive. This is because it is important to dry out the tooth in question. The drier the tooth substance and filling material, the better and more durable the bond will be between the two.
The rubber dam is also known as a stretching cloth. It is usually made of rubber or plastic and shields a tooth from the rest of the oral cavity. This prevents saliva from reaching the treated area. This is not only important for the adhesive technique, but also for root canal treatment. We will, of course, provide you with comprehensive advice on the possible uses of the rubber dam and its suitability in your particular case.
