What is a Dental Dam?

This educational video was brought to you by Precision Endodontics PC, an experienced Buffalo Endodontist Office specializing in root canals.

  • The purpose of a dental dam is to keep an area clean to prevent bacteria – even your own oral bacteria and saliva – from getting back inside your tooth.
  • The intent is to disinfect the inside of your tooth by using the dam to isolate the tooth.
  • It’s also beneficial if you are a gagger because nothing enters your mouth except your own saliva.
