If you're trying to find out how to buy dental dams, then the information provided in this article may be what you are seeking. Dental dams provide two specific purposes: one use is for dentistry during endodontic treatment when the dentist is putting the fillings into the teeth, acting as a way of isolating the tooth that is under treatment from any bacteria that may be within the oral cavity; the other use is for during safe sex when a male (or female) is performing cunnilingus or analingus on a female, the dental dam acts as a barrier for safe sex in this purpose.
- Buy Dental Dams Online. There are a huge number of places online in which you can buy dental dams from, the list ranges from Amazon, dentistry web-sites, and even sex supply web-sites. They come in a large variety of flavors and packs, prices will typically range well-under five dollars but that really depends on how many you want in a pack. Buying dental dams online is perhaps the most discreet way to get them.
- Buy Dental Dams in the Store. You can buy dental dams at pretty much anywhere regular condoms are sold (i.e. Rite Aid, Duane Reade, CVS, and so forth). The upside to buying them in person at a store is that you won't have to worry about paying for shipping as opposed to when buying them online. You may even be able to get them for free at any university's health center.
- Make Your Own Dental Dams. One other option is to make them yourself. This can be done through one of two ways. First, you can buy a non-lubricated condom, unroll it completely and cut away the tip then down one side of the condom, thus making a latex rectangle for perfect oral use. You can also use a nitrile or latex glove, by simply cutting off either the three middle fingers (providing you two handles to insert your thumbs) or cutting off all the fingers with the exception of the thumb (making for a nice little pocket for you to insert your tongue).
