Rubber Dam Punch:
The use of a rubber dam is almost mandatory in modern endodontic practice for three reasons. Firstly, it provides an aseptic operating field, isolating the tooth from oral and salivary contamination. It cannot be stressed enough that contamination of the root canal with saliva introduces new microorganisms to the root canal which may prolong treatment and reduce prognosis. Secondly, rubber dam facilitates the use of the strong medicaments necessary to clean the root canal system. Finally, it protects the patient from the inhalation or ingestion of endodontic instruments.
