Rubber dam clamps are dental instruments used in conjunction with rubber dams during various dental procedures, particularly during endodontic (root canal) treatments and restorative procedures. A rubber dam is a thin sheet made of latex or non-latex material that is stretched over a frame and placed around a tooth or group of teeth to isolate them from the oral environment during treatment.

Rubber dam clamps are used to secure the rubber dam in place around the tooth being treated. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate different tooth shapes and positions within the mouth. The clamp is placed around the tooth adjacent to the tooth being treated and is attached to the rubber dam, providing stabilization and isolation of the treatment area.


The use of rubber dam clamps offers several advantages during dental procedures:

  1. Isolation: Rubber dams and clamps isolate the treatment area from saliva, blood, and other contaminants, improving visibility and maintaining a clean working environment.
  2. Patient Comfort: By isolating the treatment area, rubber dams help prevent debris and materials from entering the patient’s mouth, reducing the risk of discomfort and potential aspiration.
  3. Infection Control: Rubber dams help prevent the spread of bacteria and reduce the risk of infection by isolating the treatment area.
  4. Efficiency: Rubber dam isolation improves efficiency by providing better access and visibility, allowing dental professionals to work more effectively and accurately.
