Nowadays the endodontic world is crazy for the technology, rotary
instruments, endo motors, microscopes and so on, but some colleagues are
loosing the attention on the basic principles of the root canal treatment
underestimating the importance of the isolation in endodontics .
The rubber dam is still the first and the most important step of our treatment,
not only to avoid infections but also to improve the access and the visibility of
the operative field.
StyleItaliano Endodontics motto is feasible, teachable and repeatable that’s why
we are happy to introduce to all of you this practical manual, easy to consult
and useful for your daily practice.
It’s a great pleasure for us to give you this book for free, as acknowledgement
for all our followers.
Stay tuned and follow us on Styleitaliano Endodontics.

In the last few years, scientific research and progress have revolutionized every field of
dentistry by developing groundbreaking materials and techniques. We have nickel-titanium
rotary instrumentation, ultrasonic cleaning, new locking systems and the utilization of light
sources and operating microscope in endodontics. In restorative dentistry the evolution of
composite materials and the implementation of rational layering techniques has allowed the
clinician to perform highly aesthetic and mimetic, direct and indirect dental restorations.
As a result, materials once deemed fundamental in their own field – e.g. dental amalgam in
restorative dentistry and steel instrumentation in endodontics – experienced an abrupt and
severe reduction in their operative use.
In the pursuit of excellence, practitioners are often focused on the use of new equipment
and techniques with the consequential risk of lessening or even discarding some fundamental
operative steps such as operative field isolation.
Among the few procedures not to be affected by this revolution, the usage of dental dam is
still considered an essential step in a rational and predictable endodontic and/or conservative
By talking about operative field isolation, the Authors aim at demonstrating that the
application of the dam is an easy, essential and accessible step for all practitioners. The dam is
not meant to be used by a small, privileged elite: it represents a simple and affordable
solution for the practitioners who want to perform their job according to correct biological
and ethical guidelines.
Having a clear view means less stress, makes the job easier and simplifies the management of
several factors, e.g. saliva and soft tissues. This is all about a different professional approach: to
isolate means to respect one’s work and prolong one’s professional life. When we use a dam
we are caring about the patient, but even more about ourselves.
When fully aware about dam advantages, the practitioner will be sure to do the best for the
patient and he/she won’t easily give up this habit even in the most difficult cases. In fact, in the
most challenging clinical cases the advantages attributed to correct operative field isolation
should act to motivate the practitioner to use the dam: for over a century this has been the
very first step toward excellence in conservative and endodontic dentistry.
In more than twentyfive years of a career in dentistry– partly devoted to professional
training – we have never met any colleagues quitting the dam after learning and appreciating
to operate in an isolated field: our job is not quite easy… there is no point in making it
For this reason, as well as for undeniable clinical and biological advantages, the dam should be
seen as the best way to ease one’s own professional life and achieve one’s full potential with
minimum effort and time spent.
This is our philosophy since day one. For those who prefer blood, sweat and tears, this book is not for you…
