OptraDam

Three-dimensional, anatomically shaped coffer dam

OptraDam is an anatomically shaped coffer dam which can be applied without metal braces. The integrated three-dimensional OptraDam frame can be applied by only one person and gives a full view of the working area.

The most flexible material guarantees a high level of comfort to the patient even in long treatment sessions.

OptraDam is available in two sizes, (regular and small) and can be put to use with all treatments which require dry conditions.

Overcoming the contact points in modern coffer dam technique

Summary

The isolation of the operating area with disposable covers is standard practice in general medicine all over the world and is an example to be followed by isolation in modern dentistry. This article describes new techniques of overcoming the contact points and contrasts the OptraDam Plus isolation concept to the conventional coffer dam. Experience in the practice proves that overcoming the contact points is the most difficult challenge in the application of a coffer dam.

Due to the different anatomies, accessibility and separability of the teeth the isolation of front and side teeth is practiced with different techniques.
Overcoming the contact point at the easily accessible anterior teeth is achieved manually by hyperextension, overcoming of the strong contact points in the side teeth area with the “double wedge” technique. Both ways of isolation can be conducted by a single person. They are more suited to the new isolation concept presented, as the covering coating has the adverse apical traction direction as opposed to the conventional coffer dam.
