Warnings – Intended for professional dental use only. Clamps should be replaced when they become distorted, worn or cracked. Life of clamp is dependent upon number of uses and care taken when applying, cleaning and storing. Clamps can become damaged if pH neutral detergent or cleaning solutions are not used.


Instructions for Use

Use – Remove clamp from packaging, then clean and sterilize clamp prior to use. Tie safety ligation (dental floss) around the clamp to prevent swallowing should the clamp become dislodged. (See Illustration A for recommended technique). Pre-fit the clamp to insure that there is a four-point contact with the tooth’s proximal surfaces. Using Winged Technique, clamp is then placed into the pre-punched hole in the dam so that its wings hold the hole open. With the aid of the clamp forceps the dental dam and clamp can be placed over the tooth. The dental dam is then slipped off of the wings of the clamp onto the tooth.


Cleaning: Clamps should be rinsed and cleaned immediately following the procedure. Failure to clean will decrease the life of the clamp and can result in staining or corroding. Rinse and remove excess materials prior to ultrasonic cleaning. Use a pH neutral cleaning solution, such as, but not limited to Biosonic UC30 General Purpose or UC31 General Purpose with Rust Inhibitor, and follow ultrasonic cleaner manufacturer’s instructions. Rinse cleaning agents from clamps. Inspect to see that all materials have been removed from clamp. Repeat if necessary. Allow clamps to dry.


Sterilization – Important, if any material is left on the clamp, it may damage the clamp. Autoclave: 15 minutes at 130ºC/266ºF Follow autoclave manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that maximum load is not exceeded.


Inspection – Always inspect the clamp for distortion, wear or damage. Discard clamps that show signs of distortion wear or damage.


Care – To insure maximum usage, do not bend or distort the clamp. Do not let clamps get scratched by other clamps or instruments. When using obturation techniques involving sodium hypochlorite, make sure that you immediately rinse clamps with water after the clamp is removed. Prolonged contact with sodium hypochlorite can cause pitting of the clamp which results in a significantly shorter clamp life. Following these instructions will help extend the life of the clamp. It is the responsibility of the user to see that these steps and precautions are taken.
