Reviews on EZ DAM®

“After Isolite was first introduced to the dental market about 20 years ago I became a loyal user. I went through a few years without a dental assistant and it was unbelievably helpful. When I was told that the EZ DAM system served the same purpose but had several advantages, I was skeptical.

The EZ DAM unit has parts that are sterilizable and reusable (the bite blocks and core) as well as a disposable part (the mouthpiece). That is one of the major advantages over Isolite, where it's all one piece. Since they are separate parts, the bite block material can be stiffer than Isolite's and the mouthpiece can be softer than Isolite’s, so it performs better than Isolite and is more comfortable. Other important elements are that since you don't throw out the entire device with each use, it is more cost effective with a lower cost per piece overall. And, the cleaning of the device is much simpler for staff as you just place the EZ DAM core in the sterilizer, no need to disassemble, use brushes, o-rings and lubrication. I use EZ DAM when I have any trouble keeping the patient still and stay dry. I love it for composites and crown preps, especially CEREC dentistry. I have been a CEREC user for nearly 20 years and used Isolite initially.

I switched to EZ DAM years ago and continue to love its benefits. I wouldn't consider adhesive based ceramics without the ability to predictably keep the patient open and the tooth dry, and EZ DAM provides both these tasks very well. I believe that using EZDAM might save me 10-15 minutes per crown procedure because there are almost no breaks to suction, rest, rinse out, or talk! More importantly I have much less stress using EZ DAM because I know that the patient is protected from the bur and they won't move or swallow at the wrong time and ruin what I am trying to do. It also frees up my assistant from the chair. I can have her do other things while I am prepping and I don't have to stop. That increases productivity. I would recommend EZ DAM to my colleagues. In my opinion it is a better way to work overall. The benefits of providing my patients with a more predictable higher quality level of care combined with the added protection, improved efficiency, and ability to delegate resources elsewhere make this a no brainer in my opinion.

“Thanks for the introduction to EZ DAM - I love it! Don’t know how I worked without it!! It was amazing, no need to worry about tongue, patient jaw is relaxed and cheek is out of the way.”

“Our favorite piece for the EZ DAM is the Junior, patients love the comfort of it, as well as the suctioning works very well. Have not had any complaints, and sometimes we cut it to adjust the sizing.”

Dr. Barbara Kostyk, Cochrane, AB

“I LOVE the EZ DAM! My assistant Grace now asks me if I want to use it for every restorative procedure - because she has witnessed how manageable my procedures become when it is employed. Patients agree: it's not always a perfect fit, but it typically helps them to relax and tolerate long procedures - especially those with gag reflexes. It's a revolutionary product in my practice. So thank you for your introduction and support!”

Dr. Kenneth Montague, Toronto, ON
“EZ DAM is really easy to use. It allows the operator to see better and facilitates our procedures. The different sizes of bite blocks ensure patient comfort and keep the mouth opened as required. We're just starting to use EZ DAM and already we don't want to work without it. Thank you for introducing this product to us.”

Elise Laberge, Gegep de l'Outaouais, QC
“I almost always use EZ DAM when placing more than a single composite restoration on the same patient, when preparing or cementing crowns, and even for ortho brackets. It is easy and efficient for me, and with the choices of bite block sizes and silicone mouthpieces, my patients appreciate the added comfort. It offers excellent check retraction and the tongue is kept at bay so they can relax and I can work. EZ DAM is a great tool for an efficient practice.”

Dr. Julie Boisvert, Quebec, QC
“EZ DAM - I love it!!! I can do several treatments without my assistant having to suction.”

Dr. Guadalupe Arrieta, Toronto, ON
“At the Saint-Hyacinthe College’s dental hygienist clinic, the kit EZ DAM became a major player in the students’ daily practice. It provides a good isolation when the rubber dam is not an option in dental surgery. It is also ideal to isolate the surgical site when applying pit and fissure sealants. Furthermore, it is easy to install and very comfortable for the client.”

“The EZ DAM is amazing! It's a timer saver! My patients are very surprised to find how comfortable the mouthpiece and the bite block are. It helps, that the bite blocks come in various sizes and the mouthpiece can be trimmed. All posterior work, including crown preps and class V restorations are so much easier with the EZ DAM. I was worried about using the EZ DAM on my patients with severe gag reflex, but now I can't work on them with out it. I would recommend the EZ DAM to all dentist, who want to save time and provide comfort for their patients!”

“EZ DAM is a wonderful option when rubber dam cannot be used. The ease of placement and comfort for patients make it an excellent addition to restorative procedures. It is especially good when working on kids. Ideal isolation for cementing crowns and onlays. I was pleasantly surprised on how dry the field was kept, what a bonus! Using the EZ DAM is like having extra hands available for all procedures, 6-handed dentistry at it's best!”

Dr. Dennis Marangos, Toronto, ON
“I have been using EZ DAM in my 2 dental practices for a few months. It takes less than a minute to be ready to use it. It is very convenient for my patients because it is very comfortable and for me it provides ideal isolation in all my treatments. Hugo my local Rep is very knowledgeable and helpful to work with. I definitely recommend the use of EZ DAM from Synca.”
