i heart rubber dams!

since my last post was a rant, i have to counter with some happy stuff. i just switched bonding agents and i am ecstatic with the results! i also started using a rubber dam for all my composite fillings and it gives me such piece of mind to not worry about tongues and drool getting into the way of my nice, dry field. you get a perfect bond every time. ahh....

i heart you, rubber dams!


  • I always try to use rubber dam too! It creates a good clean workfield, good sight, and dry! In children it helps a lot too! They cannot talk, or move, and tongue and cheeks are being held away instantly! good!

  • right on! i know some docs don't like to use it because it takes a bit of time to get on, but look how much time you don't waste retracting that tongue, mopping up the saliva with all those cotton rolls, and sometimes having to re-do because it doesn't bond.

    with kids it's the best, especially for those little gaggers!
