Protecting the gingiva and maintaining a dry field can mean the difference between a successful procedure and a costly do-over.
MiniDam from DMG America is a new, latex-free gingival protection device that goes on quickly and holds on securely. Once placed, it protects the proximal area during treatment, and provides comfortable gingival coverage for patients. The unique shape of the MiniDam allows it to self stabilize around adjacent teeth, where it securely maintains its position without the use of clamps.
The clinician simply pre-stretches the silicone material, which already has holes integrated into it and then pulls it over the teeth to be treated. This provides a relatively dry working area, unlimited access and an unobstructed view of the working area. Dental Milestones Guaranteed.
The DMG MiniDam protects the proximal area during treatment – quickly, easily and comfortably for the patient.
The practical silicone shield ensures that the site being treated is sufficiently dry. At the same time, the gingiva is protected from the materials being used, e.g. etching gel.
The DMG MiniDam can be placed by one person in just a few seconds and stabilizes itself – without clamps – with open access to the treatment area. That makes it extremely convenient for the dentist and very comfortable for the patient.
The material is latex-free and thus harmless for allergy sufferers. Thanks to the DMG MiniDam, procedures in the proximal area, which also include caries infiltration for example, can thus be completed more quickly.
