Dr. DiTolla’s Clinical Tips – ROEKO Flexi Dam

Few dentists would try to argue that a rubber dam does not enhance most restorative and endodontic procedures; however, many of these procedures are attempted without rubber dams due to the complexity of their placement. Nearly all dentists I have asked say that if they could walk into the operatory with the dam already placed, they would utilize one for nearly 100 percent of their cases. The ROEKO Flexi Dam from Coltène/Whaledent is easy enough to place that most auxiliaries can accomplish placement on their own. And because it’s nonlatex, it can be used universally on all patients. Also, the material’s high tear resistance works especially well in difficult-to-reach areas that require maximum stretching.
