I Don't Give a Dam!

Overview

...but I should!

Rubber dam usage promotes ergonomics, operator and assistant health by minimising aerosol spread of bacteria, patient comfort and safety, documented better clinical outcomes versus no rubber dam, and the highest level of medico-legal protection.


Rubber dam saves clinical time and provides the optimum environment for the placement of restorative materials. In our changing regulatory environment, the use of rubber dam is now mandatory for routine endodontic treatment. 


This course will teach you rapid and simplified techniques of rubber dam application from single tooth isolation to quadrant dentistry in a full ‘hands-on’ environment complemented by lectures and clinical notes. This half-day course encourages a team approach and the participation of your dental assistant is encouraged.


Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the course you will be able to:

  • Choose between a clamp and clamp-less technique
  • Select the correct clamp for a given clinical situation
  • Select the correct weight of rubber dam for the specific clinical procedure
  • Treat 90% of endodontic cases with just four clamps
  • Achieve single tooth isolation for endodontics in 30 seconds
  • Isolate multiple teeth with a variety of techniques
  • Recognise and prevent rubber dam leaks
  • Manage problems such as class V restorations and broken down teeth
  • Utilise your dental assistant in the most efficient manner with rubber dam
