Rubber dam in endodontics

An overview of recent advances

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The rubber dam has been introduced to endodontics over past 120 years. It is obligatory in endodontics, so much so that endodontics should not be performed without a rubber dam. However, its use in endodontics has been unfortunately rejected by many in the profession. Many unfounded reasons for its use like, time for its placement, cost of equipment and materials, difficulty in use and patient acceptance are given by the dental practioner's. However, recently by the introduction of many newer variations, its use in endodontics has been made easy. The purpose of this paper is to review the advances in rubber dam materials and discuss their possibilities to use in endodontics.
