Rubber dam is a method of isolating teeth that was designed to create a dry operating field for dental treatment and was invented way back in 1864.
It is widely acknowledged amongst world experts that the use of rubber dam enables the dentist to achieve consistently higher quality dentistry – and yet only a minority of dental practices use rubber dam on a routine basis.
This is mostly due to dentist’s inexperience and lack confidence with rubber dam.
At North Fitzroy Dental we are very passionate about the quality of our dentistry and for this reason all our dentists routinely use rubber dam.
In fact, there would be few general practices that use rubber dam more extensively than North Fitzroy Dental and some of our Dentists have even taught other Dentists how to use Rubber Dam.
