Impression Tray
Impression trays, also called imprint spoons, are used to carry casting materials when dental impressions are taken. Many products like for example the Rim-Lock ® spoons are available on the market in materials such as metal and acrylic. We distinguish between two types: prefabricated impression trays and individualized impression trays. The prefabricated trays are factory-made impression trays and come in a host of different shapes (for toothed, partially toothed, and toothless jaws). Individualized trays are custom-made by the dental technician to fit your individual jaw. Note that the cleaning of imprint spoons isn’t always easy, especially since adhesive materials are used on imprints to ensure a better fixing of the casting material. Watch the video above to know more about dental impression trays.
