Practical: Low radiopacity means there is no need to remove the dam during X-rays. Its anatomical shape also reportedly leads to reduced tensioning, meaning dentists don’t need to worry about the dam snapping out of place.

Efficient: A distinctive nipple design is said to guide the clinician during positioning for easier assembly and removal. Its intelligent shape is engineered to allow the saliva ejectors to comfortable fit underneath the dam
