Share Abstract:

Extending the use of rubber dam isolation: alternative procedures. Part III

Liebenberg, William H

Pages: 657-665
PMID: 1289946

Most dentists are well aware of the value of the rubber dam in allowing technical excellence; however, few recognize the potential for protecting the dentist and staff against the ever-growing number of carriers of the hepatitis and human immunodeficiency viruses. The effectiveness of the rubber dam as an isolation barrier is dependent on the consistency of its application. Sporadic rubber dam application is therefore a weak link in an infection control program. This paper describes additional modified utilizations of rubber dam, uses that are generally not attempted with restrictive orthodox application methods. In addition,practical hints on other means of retention are offered, with the emphasis on nuisance-free and easy application.
