Single Tooth Isolation Method

1. The rubber dam is fitted on to the rubber dam frame so that a gutter is created.




2. Imagine a cross in the centre of the rubber dam; a hole is punched in the relevant quadrant.

3. A winged clamp is selected and placed in the rubber dam.


4. Using forceps the clamp is introduced on to the tooth. The operator must be careful to make sure that the soft tissues are not trapped.

5. The clamp is allowed to close on to the tooth in the correct position, and the rubber dam is then released from the clamp wings using a flat plastic or fingers.

6. Sealant can be applied for extra protection if necessary.
