Single tooth isolation can be a snap with the Instidam from Zirc! I love using the Instidam Latex Free Relaxed. It has the frame built right in and has just the right tension to allow easy placement and easy radiographs throughout the procedure. Single use means no sterilization and no cross contamination! Go check out Al's favorite at and use coupon code "INSTIHACKS" for $5 off of a 20 pack of regular or "relaxed" through August!
