Sanctuary Powder Free Non Latex Dental Dam

Consultants’ Comments

  • “I love these dams. They do not tear, even when using large clamps.”
  • “More tear resistant than the non-latex dams I was using.”
  • “I was impressed with the ease of use and texture of this non-latex rubber dam. I was expecting something similar to other nitrile products I have used, but it handled very similarly to latex rubber dam.”
  • “This is the best rubber dam I have ever used.”
  • “Great handling, color and flavor.”
  • “The rubber dam sheets were almost a little too big for frame. Several times, I had to trim sheets back as they were loose.”

Clinical Tips

  • It’s best to use a template when punching the holes, especially with a large surface to work with (6×6 sheets rather than 5″x5″).
  • If you are having difficulty keeping it attached to a metal frame, use a plastic frame. It attaches nicely to a plastic frame.
  • Mark the punch sites ahead, and trim the corners of the sheet after placing it in the frame.
  • The sheet can be used to cut out the pattern and place it over immediate extraction/implant site with sutures prior to taking a VPS impression.
