I just read the Journal of Endodontics (JOE), December 2013 article on post placements with and without a rubber dam and I am not surprised at the astonishing difference in successful outcomes when a rubber dam is used when placing a post. Lets get the word out: Use a Rubber Dam when placing Posts! Please consider Endo Sequence matching tapered post kits to avoid other iatrogenic mistakes when making post space too.
