Abstract

Background: It is beneficial to reduce the ingestion/aspiration of dental instruments during implant placement. It may be beneficial to reduce the bacterial load during implant placement procedures, as biofilm formation on implants can lead to failure. A dental dam may help reduce ingress of oral bacteria during implant placement. Case Description: This case report demonstrates the use of a dental dam during the surgical placement of a dental implant. A literature review is presented that includes a history and rationale for the use of dental dams during various dental procedures. It also reviews the risks of aspirating/ingesting implant instruments. Practical Implications: Use of a dental dam during implant placement offers operator conveniences, while also providing a safer field with less chance of instrument swallowing and may offer a less bacteria-laden operating field.
