The rubber dam is used to protect the patient when the removal of these metals are being performed. The rubber dam is like a tooth raincoat, and prevents the mercury particles from being sprayed throughout the mouth. A very specific cream (HgX) is then smeared all over the rubber dam to prevent the mercury gases from passing through the rubber dam. This is the best way to protect the patient from both particles and gases.
