Use of rubber dam isolation is the standard of care for dentistry and a must for endodontic procedures.1 Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, rubber dam isolation is more important than ever for dentistry, particularly for aerosol-generating procedures. The dental dam is proven effective at minimizing droplet spatter and aerosols and is specifically included in infection control guidelines by the CDC. 2 Importantly, rubber dam use is not just for the patient’s protection – it helps protect the dental team too.
Advantages of rubber dam use include patient protection from aspiration of instruments, tooth debris, medicaments, and irrigating solutions. Rubber dam isolation improves visibility and helps in soft tissue retraction and protection. Use of a dental dam keeps the operating field clean and isolated from saliva, blood, and other fluids. The dental dam reduces cross contamination and provides an excellent barrier to the potential spread of infection. The rubber dam minimizes patient conversation during treatment and the need for frequent rinsing. Routine placement of rubber dam is considered the standard of care by professional organizations.1
