Best Dental Dam | Joplin MO

Dental Dam

A dental dam is a thin square of latex or non-latex rubber. It is a protective device that creates isolation of your tooth/teeth to prevent contamination of the area. Dental dams create a clean and dry area. Dental dams have the following advantages:

  • Prevents the treatment area from being exposed to bacteria and saliva
  • Protects your lips, cheek, tongue and gums from irritation
  • Prevents the possibility of any water or materials from falling into your mouth
  • Allows you to be more comfortable during your appointment
  • Fillings bond more effectively to make them more durable.
  • Dental dams provide better long-term dentistry.

Because of the overwhelming benefits of the Dental Dam, Dr. Fitterling and our Joplin Family Dental team use it for the majority of dental treatments.
