Abstract

Aim

To emphasize the importance of rubber dam isolation in root canal treatment and to present a technique to simultaneously isolate two single-rooted teeth using a molar clamp.

Summary

Isolation of two adjacent teeth with inadequate tooth structure is a challenge. The split-dam technique or using two clamps have drawbacks. This report presents a technique to simultaneously isolate two adjacent single-rooted teeth that are difficult to isolate by conventional methods. Its advantages are efficiency, reduction of radiation exposure, better access, good visibility and isolation.
