Shop Dental Impression Materials & Accessories on Amazon.com
Dental impression material and accessories include a variety of products used to create full and partial dentures, crowns, orthodontic devices, and dental implants. Impression materials may be rigid or elastic, and the elastic products may be elastomeric, such as with VPS putty, or hydrocolloid, such as with alginate impression material. These materials are used with impression trays that may be stock or customized for a particular mouth, and the trays with material are used to create a negative imprint of the dental arch area being worked on. Dental mixing bowls are used with a rigid material such as plaster to cast the positive imprint of the dental arch, and denture instruments are then used to scrape and refine the molded impression. Material and accessories may be purchased individually or in case-size quantities where they are used in volume. When choosing supplies, consider the environment in which it is intended for use and their compatibility with equipment and other supplies.
