All of our restorative treatments including Fillings, Root Canals, and Crowns are prepared and completed under local anaesthetic (The Wand), and our patients always have the option of Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas). In addition to this, our clinicians use Rubber Dam isolation. Even fissures sealants, a popular preventative treatment, can be performed under Rubber Dam isolation.
Our knowledgeable clinicians can consult and guide you along a path tailor made for you. We also consult and work closely with specialists to ensure you are being provided with the best treatment options and highest standard of care.
What is rubber dam / rubber dam isolation?
The rubber dam is a latex or latex free sheet that is secured over a tooth/teeth in the mouth and held in place by an external frame.
Isolation using a rubber dam allows the desired teeth to be isolated from the rest of the mouth, controlling exposure of moisture and bacteria to the tooth surface. This allows an ideal environment for bonding of restorative filling material to the tooth surface to ensure an optimal restoration.
Rubber dam isolation allows the protection and retraction of the lips, cheeks, tongue, and the gums. By retracting the soft tissue the clinician has better visibility and can focus on achieving the perfect result for your treatment.
The rubber dam also protects the patient by ensuring all the yucky tastes and anything removed from the tooth surface does not go down your throat, it will be evacuated by the high speed suction. By removing the constant build up of water at the brack of your throat during treatment, you will be able to breathe normally under the rubber dam. If you do get a build up of your own saliva and are unable to swallow, the assistant can simply pop in under the rubber dam to evacuate it.
