What is a Dental Dam?
- 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.
