The dentist sounds pretty good, but there is no way in hell I would even consider the procedure without a dam. That and breathing piped oxygen through your nose are two most important parts. Otherwise that stuff is gonna fly everywhere in your mouth and your mouth is one big membrane. Thats crazy imo.
I was thinking that about the dam. On the website, however, it says this about the ‘throat sponge’:
“A throat sponge simply isolates the area we are working in, to ensure that all remnants of the restoration are kept away from other areas of the mouth.”
Accordingly, I think it may just be a simple substitute for the dam. I will give them a call though to ensure that this is the case. As for the oxygen, it doesn’t say it on the website but when I called them they told me that I would have my own clean source of oxygen piped in through a fully-fitted mask over my nose.
