Payal isolation

  1. 1. Isolation Of Operating Field Presented by : Dr Payal Singh Pg 1st yr Dept of Conservative dentistry and Endodontics 1
  2. 2. Contents  Introduction  History  Classification – Isolation from moisture – Direct methods - Indirect methods - Isolation from soft tissues Direct methods • Rubber dam • Cotton rolls & holder • Throat shield/Gauze piece • Absorbent wafers • Suction devices • Gingival retraction cord 2
  3. 3. Indirect methods • Comfortable position of the patient & relaxed surroundings • Local Anesthesia • Drugs - anti-sialogaogues, anti anxiety ,muscle relaxants  Isolation from Soft tissues • Retraction of cheeks, lips and tongue • Retraction of gingiva  Advancements  References  Conclusion 3
  4. 4. Introduction Isolation of operarting field is essential to the correct performances of most operative procedures. The term oral environment refers to the following items which require proper control to prevent them from interfering with the execution of any restorative procedures •Saliva •Moving organs, i.e. tongue •Lips & Cheek •The periodontium •The contacting teeth and restoration •The sulci, floor of the mouth and palate •Respiratory moisture 4
  5. 5. History •The rubber dam was first described over 120 years ago when in March 1864 Dr. Sanford Barnum first explained its use at meeting of Valley Dental Society in New York. •Rubber dam frames were described in early 20th century as Metal Fernauld’s design. More recent designs have taken advantages of developments in plastics to produce frames which are radiolucent. 5
  6. 6. Goals of isolation Acc.to Sturdevant 1. Moisture control  It refers to excluding sulcular fluid, saliva & gingival bleeding from the operating field. 2. Retraction & Access  retraction & access provides maximal exposure of the operating site 6
  7. 7. 3. Harm prevention • Small instruments and restorative debris can be aspirated or swallowed. •Soft tissue can be damaged accidentally. Hence along with moisture control and retraction, a rubber dam, suction devices, absorbents, throat shields and occasional use of a mouth prop prevents harm to the patient and improves operator efficiency. 7
  8. 8. Local anesthesia Use of these agents reduces salivation apparently because the patient is more comfortable, less anxious and less sensitive to oral stimuli thus reducing salivary flow. 8
  9. 9. Rubber Dam Isolation  First introduced in 1864 by S.C.Barnum. One of the best method for providing isolation from saliva & soft tissues. • Reasons for using a Rubber dam Safety Moisture control Patient management 9
  10. 10. Advantages of using a rubber dam 1. Dry, clean operating field. 2. Improved Accessibility & Visibility. 3. Improved properties of dental materials. 4. Protection to patient and operator. 5. Increased operator efficiency. 10
  11. 11. Disadvantages • Asthmatics and mouth breathers • Partially erupted and severely malpositioned teeth. • Some 3rd Molars. • Patients who are allergic to latex • Psychological reasons • Minor damage to marginal gingiva &cervical cementum during clamp removal. • Metal crown margins show microscopic defects following clamp removal. • Ceramic crowns could fracture if clamps are allowed to grip the margins. • Time consumption and patient objection. • Difficulty in taking radiograph- now avoidable due to radiolucent, flexible retainers 11
  12. 12. Armamentarium 1. Rubber dam sheets 2. Rubber dam clamps 3. Rubber dam retainer forceps 4. Rubber dam holder 5. Rubber dam punch 6. Rubber dam template/stamp 7. Dental floss 8. Wedget 9. Lubricant 10. Modeling compound 11. Anchorage other than retainers 12
  13. 13. Rubber dam sheets• Rubber dam is made from natural latex rubber • manufactured as continuous rolls in two widths (5×5 inch or 6×6inch) • Traditional rubber dam is black in color but it is now made in at least four alternative color green, blue, grey and natural (natural color is translucent). • Green & blue – colour contrast with teeth. Thickness Manufactured in range of five thicknesses: Grade Thickness mm(inches) Thin 0.15 (0.006) Medium 0.20 (0.008) Heavy 0.25 (0.010) Extra heavy 0.30 (0.012) Special heavy 0.35 (0.014) 13
  14. 14. 14  Rubber dam membrane/ sheets of different materials are available in various thicknesses, sizes & colors.  Thicker the material 1. the better the isolation. 2. places high stress on the retainers mainly in molars.  Thinner material has the advantage of passing through the contact easier, which is particularly useful when they are tight. • Thin – Isolation of anterior teeth • Thick – Isolation of posterior teeth. • Isolation of class V cavities. • Medium – Throughout the mouth. • Heavy & Extra heavy – Chairside bleaching.  Rubber dam material -shiny -dull side As the dull side is less light reflective, it is generally place facing the occlusal aspect
  15. 15. Rubber dam frame (Holder) The rubber dam frame maintains the borders of the dam in position. -The young holder is a U shaped metal frame with small metal projections for securing the borders of rubber dam. -Most popular, ease of application, minimal contact of rubber with skin -Disadvantage is they obstruct field of operation 15
  16. 16. Metal frames Fernauld’s Fernauld’s Frame Young’s Frame -The young holder is a U shaped metal frame with small metal projections for securing the borders of rubber dam. -Most popular, ease of application, provides minimal contact of rubber with skin -Disadvantage is they obstruct field of operation 16
  17. 17. PLASTIC FRAMES NYGARD-OSTBY FRAME It is a circumferential, contoured, plastic frame with 8 projections to hold the sheet SAUVEUR OVAL FRAME 17
  18. 18. Rubber dam clamps (Retainer) • Consists of 4 prongs and 2 jaws connected by a bow • Used to anchor the dam to the most posterior teeth to be isolated and also retract gingival tissues. Two types of retainer 1. Winged retainer 2. Wingless retainer WINGED RETAINERS have wing-like projections on the outer aspect of the jaws. They provide extra retraction of the rubber dam from the field of the operation. Clamps which have W in front of number indicates that clamp is having wings. WINGLESS RETAINERS have no wings on their jaws. These retainer is first placed on the tooth and the dam then stretched over the clamp onto the tooth. 18 WINGS
  19. 19. Alternative Rubber Dam Isolation Technique for the Restoration of Class V Cervical Lesions Operative Dentistry, 2006, 31-2, 277-280 Butterfly shaped clamp/ 212 SA For anteriors Modification of the #212 rubber dam retainer. Note the apical positioning of the facial retainer jaw for increased stabilization and soft tissue retraction. Picture showing altered position of the facial retainer jaw for correct placement on the tooth. 19 Retainers with prongs directed gingivally are helpful when the anchor tooth is only partially erupted.
  23. 23. According to Sturdvent’s 23
  26. 26. •When positioned on a tooth, a properly selected retainer should contact the tooth in four areas-two on the facial surface and two on the lingual surface. •Retainer should not move on the anchor tooth or it will injure the gingiva and tooth, resulting in postoperative soreness or sensitivity. 26
  27. 27. Rubber dam punch • A precision instrument having a metal table and a tapered, sharp pointed plunger which is used to produce clean-cut holes in the rubber dam sheet through which the teeth can be isolated. • 1. single hole punch • 2. multi-hole punch a. Ivory pattern b. Ash or Ainsworth pattern 27
  29. 29. Punch is provided with six holes of varying sizes. Larger holes for molars, medium size for premolars, upper cuspids, upper incisors Small for lower incisors The holes are ideally punched according to the position of the tooth in the arch. 29
  31. 31. Clean-cut Hole (right), Incomplete cut with Residual tag of Dam (centre), and Irregular hole following removal of the Residual tag (left) The distance between holes is equal to the distance from center of one tooth to the center of adjacent tooth ,at level of gingival tissue i.e, approximately 6 mm. If the dam material is excessive it will wrinkle between the teeth. Conversely too little distance between holes causes the dam to stretch ,resulting in space around the teeth and leakage. 31
  32. 32. Rubber dam forceps • Forceps are needed to stretch the jaws of the clamp open in a controlled manner during placement and removal. Three widely used designs are • Ash or stokes pattern • Ivory pattern • Washington pattern LOCK HANDLE TIPS HOLES OF THE CLAMP 32
  33. 33. Ash-or- Stokes Pattern It has notches near the tips of their beaks in which to locate the holes of a rubber dam clamp. It allows a range of rotation for the clamp so that it may be positioned on teeth that are mesially or distally angled. Ivory Pattern It has stabilizers that prevent the clamp from rotating on the beaks. It limits the use of these forceps to teeth that are within a range of normal angulation. 33
  34. 34. University Of Washington Pattern Brewer Forceps 34
  35. 35. Rubber dam stamp & template It provides a very convenient and efficient way of marking the dam for punching. 35
  36. 36. Accessories Dental floss • Required for testing the Interdental contacts and for making ligatures when they are needed. • Also aid in flossing the rubber dam through tight contacts. 36
  37. 37. Napkin : It is a disposable paper which is placed between the patients skin and the rubber dam sheet. Uses: a) Prevents contact of rubber dam sheet to the skin thus preventing any possible allergic reaction. b) It absorbs saliva seeping through the corners of the mouth. c) It acts as a cushion. 37
  38. 38. Lubricant: A water-soluble lubricant applied in the area of the punched holes facilitates the passing of the dam septa through the proximal contacts. It is applied on both sides of the dam in the area of the punched holes. A rubber dam lubricant is commercially available, but other lubricants, such as shaving cream or soap slurry, are also satisfactory 38
  39. 39. Modeling compound • Low fusing modeling compound is used sometimes used to secure the retainer to the tooth to prevent retainer movement during the operator procedure. • Wedget This is an elastic cord generally used to secure the dam around the teeth farthest from the clamp. It can also be used to push the dam through the interproximal contact and also in some places as a retainer instead of clamp. 39
  40. 40. Application of rubber dam 40 For isolation of anteriors and mesial surface of canine ,1st premolars can be used as anchor teeth.
  41. 41. TESTING & LUBRICATING PROXIMAL CONTACTS Passing floss through the contacts identifies any sharp edges of restorations or enamel that must be smoothed or removed to prevent tearing the dam. Using waxed dental tape may lubricate tight contacts to facilitate dam placement PUNCHING THE HOLES Punch the holes after assessing the arch form and tooth alignment. STEP 1 STEP 2 41
  42. 42. LUBRICATING THE DAM Lubricates both sides of the rubber dam in the area of the punched holes using a cotton roll or gloved fingertip to apply the lubricant This facilitates passing the rubber dam through the contacts. SELECTING THE CLAMP With the help of the rubber dam retainer forceps, place the retainer onto the tooth selected. If the retainer is fitting the anchor teeth properly than it can be adjusted or it can be changed with other retainer. STEP 3 STEP 4 42
  43. 43. TESTING THE CLAMP’S STABILITY & RETENTION If during trial placement the retainer seems acceptable, remove the forceps. Test the retainer's stability and retention by lifting gently in an occlusal direction with a fingertip under the bow of the retainer. An improperly fitting retainer will rock or be easily dislodged STEP 5 43
  44. 44. STEP 6 POSITIONING THE DAM OVER THE CLAMP  Before applying the dam, the floss tie may be threaded through the anchor hole, or it may be left on the under- side of the dam.  With the forefingers, stretch the anchor hole of the dam over the retainer (bow first) and then under the jaws.  The lip of the hole must pass completely under the jaws.  The septal dam must always pass through its respective contact in single thickness.  If it does not pass through readily, it should be passed through with dental tape later in the procedure. 44
  45. 45. STEP 7 STEP 8 APPLYING THE NAPKIN Now gather the rubber dam and pass it through the napkin . POSITIONING THE NAPKIN Pull the bunched dam through the napkin and positions it on the patient's face. The napkin reduces skin contact with 45
  46. 46. STEP 9 ATTACHING THE FRAME  Unfold the dam, while holding the frame in place, attaches the dam to the metal projections on the left side of the frame.  The curvature of the frame should be concentric with the patient's face.  The dam lies between the frame and napkin.  Now attach the dam along the inferior border of the frame.  Attaching the dam to the frame at this time controls the dam to provide access and visibility. 46
  47. 47. STEP 10 ATTACHING THE NECK STRAP [ OPTIONAL ] 47 It can be used to stabilize frame and hold the frame gently against the face.
  48. 48. STEP 11 STEP 12 PASSING THE DAM THROUGH POSTERIOR CONTACT APPLYING THE COMPOUND [ OPTIONAL] 48 If there is tooth distal to retainer then distal margin of the anchor hole should be passed through contact to ensure good seal around anchor tooth. But It should not cover the holes in the jaw of the retainer.
  49. 49. STEP 13 STEP 14 APPLYING THE ANTERIOR ANCHOR [ IF NEEDED ] PASSING THE SEPTA THROUGH THE CONTACTS WITHOUT TAPE 49 Anterior anchor tooth can be used to stabilize the anterior portion of dam. By streching the dam facio-gingivally and linguo-gingivally with the help of forefingers for this slight separation or wedging can be done with blunt hand instrument.
  50. 50. STEP 15 STEP 16 PASSING THE SEPTA THROUGH THE CONTACTS WITH TAPE TECHNIQUE FOR USING TAPE [ OPTIONAL ] 50 Waxed tape reduces the chances of tearing the edges of the holes and passes the rubber septa through the contacts.
  51. 51. STEP 17 STEP 18 INVERTING THE DAM INTERPROXIMALLY INVERTING THE DAM FACIOLINGUALLY 51 Inversion is best accomplished with dental tape. It is done to obtain complete seal around the tooth . Inversion is done using explorer by moving it around neck of tooth facially and lingually. It should be placed perpendicular to tooth surface and slightly directed gingivally.
  52. 52. STEP 19 STEP 20 USING A SALIVA EJECTOR [ OPTIONAL ] CONFIRMING A PROPERLY APPLIED RUBBER DAM 52 It can be used by making a small hole posterior to mandibular incisors and inserting the ejector through it.
  54. 54. STEP 1 STEP 2 CUTTING THE SEPTA REMOVING THE RETAINER Removal of rubber dam 54 Stretch dam facially ,pulling septal rubber away from gingival tissue.
  56. 56. MASSAGING THE TISSUES EXAMINING THE DAM STEP 5 STEP 6 56 By placing dam over light colored flat surface to determine no portion is left between and around teeth. It enhances the circulation.
  57. 57. APPLYING THE DAM & RETAINER SIMULTANEOUSLY 57 Advantages- reduces the risk of retainer being swallowed before dam is placed. This approach reduces the difficulty of trying of pass the dam over a previously placed retainer ,the bow of which pressing against oral tissues. Operator holds the retainer by forceps and passes the bow through the hole from the underside of the dam and then strecth the dam to engage the wings also.
  58. 58. APPLYING THE DAM BEFORE THE RETAINER 58 Distadvantage – reduction in visibility of underlying gingival tissue ,which may become impinged on by he retainer.
  59. 59. 59 Split-Dam Technique  Used to isolate anterior teeth without using a rubber dam clamp.  It is also useful when there is insufficient crown structure eg. horizontal fractures  Prevents chipping the margins of porcelain crowns or laminates from the jaws of the clamp . PROCEDURE Two overlapping holes are punched in the dam. The rubber dam is stretched over the tooth to be treated and over one adjacent tooth on each side. The edge of the dam is carefully teased through the contacts on the distal sides of two adjacent teeth with Dental floss. The tension produced by the stretched dam, aided by the rubber dam frame, secures the dam in place. If the dam has a tendency to slip, a premolar clamp may be used on a tooth distal to the three isolated teeth or even on an adjacent tooth.
  60. 60. 60 Isolation of broken maxillary lateral incisor. Premolar clamp on maxillary central incisor along with ligation on the maxillary canine prevents dam slippage of dam. Post removal and retreatment of a maxillary central incisor SPLIT-DAM TECHNIQUE
  61. 61. CERVICAL RETAINER PLACEMENT 61 Hole placement is slightly facial to the arch form to compensate for extension of dam to cervical area. and hole should be slightly larger. Lingual jaw touching HOC while facial jaw is not touching
  62. 62. CERVICAL RETAINER PLACEMENT 62 Facial rubber is stretched apically to expose lesion and soft tissue. Facial jaw is positioned against tooth 0.5-1mm apical to lesion . Addition of compound to bow and gingival embrasures. Removal of retainer by spreading of the jaws.
  63. 63. Fixed bridge isolation Indication -restoration of adjacent proximal surface and cervical restoration of abutment tooth 63 Apply dam except in the area of fixed bridge. Thread blunted suture needle from facial to lingual aspect through anterior abutment hole.Then needle is passed under anterior connector and back through same hole on lingual surface. Pass needle facially through the hole for second bridge unit then under the same connector and through the hole for second unit.
  64. 64. Fixed bridge isolation 64 Tie off first septum Cut septum to initiate removal of dam.
  65. 65. Substitution of a clamp with matrix band Problem – tendency of dam to slip occlusally over matrix. 65 Terminal tooth with retainer in place . Dam is stretched distally and gingivally as retainer is being removed. Retainer removed before placement of matrix. Matrix is placed and mouth mirror is used to reflect dam distally and oclusally
  66. 66. Severely broken down tooth 66  In case of a badly broken down teeth ,it is necessary to build up the crown of the tooth with a stainless steel band and to contour and cement the band in place before treatment begun. A core of gutta-percha can be placed first in the pulp chamber to keep cement out of the root canals. The band is cemented with GIC and excess cement and Gutta percha is removed .  Gingivectomy can also be done before a rubber dam clamp can be applied.
  67. 67. 1. Off-centre arch form 2. Inappropriate distance between the holes 3. Inappropriate retainers 4. Retainer pinched tissue 5. SHREDDED –or- TORN DAM 6.

  68. 68. Cotton rolls and holder 68
  69. 69. Placement of cotton rolls 69 Cotton rolls should be changed when saturated .or else we can use evacuator tip next to end of cotton roll to permit suction of free moisture. Cotton roll holders have an advantage that it retracts the cheeks and tongue from the teeth.
  70. 70. Throat shields/gauze pieces • used when there is a danger of aspirating or swallowing objects • especially used when treating teeth in the maxillary arch • 2×2 inch (5×5 cm) 70
  71. 71. Absorbent pads and wafers • made of cellulose, & hence also called cellulose wafers • available in different shapes • most commonly used inside the cheeks to cover the parotid ducts • more absorbent than cotton rolls & gauze pieces 71
  72. 72. Evacuation systems • Are of two types: 1. High volume evacuators 2. Low volume evacuators 72
  73. 73. High volume saliva evacuators • High volume evacuators are preferred for suctioning because saliva ejectors remove water slowly • Place tip of evacuator just distal to the tooth to be prepared • For maximum efficacy tip should be parallel to the facial (lingual) surface of the tooth being prepared. 73
  74. 74. Low volume saliva ejectors • Meant to remove saliva that collects at the floor of the mouth • When used with rubber dam passed thro a hole in rubber dam or beneath it. 74
  75. 75. Svedopter 1) For isolation and evacuation of mandibular teeth ,the saliva ejector with attached tongue deflector is excellent. 2) Most effective when used with patient in upright position. 3) Access to lingual surface of mandibular teeth is drawback. 4) The anterior part of the svedopter should be placed in the incisor region, with the tubing under the patients arm. 75
  76. 76. These are readymade cotton or synthetic fibers woven in the form of cords. They can be – a) Braided or non braided b) Impregnated or plain They come in different sizes, as ‘0’ ‘00’ ‘000’. Ready made cotton or synthetic woven. Gingival retraction cord 76
  77. 77. MEDICAMENTS FOR CORD IMPREGNATION -Epinephrine (8%) -ALUM (Potassium Aluminium Sulphate) Epinephrine causes local vasoconstriction, which results in transitory gingival shrinkage.
