Impression Trays for Dental Medicine
Dental impressions play a crucial role in dentistry, providing precise negative imprints of the hard and soft tissues found in the mouth. This impression serves as the basis for producing a positive reproduction, such as a cast or model, which accurately represents the oral structures. The dental impression tray is a specialised instrument designed for obtaining precise impressions of both the upper and lower jaw, capturing the intricate details of the teeth, gums, and other oral tissues, including any remaining natural teeth or existing dentures.
Shaped to conform to the jaw structure, the tray is filled with dental impression material such as alginate. Once inserted into the patient's mouth, the patient bites down on the impression material, creating a detailed dental impression. By using impression trays, dentists can for example ensure that the dentures they create fit properly and provide optimal functionality and aesthetics for the patient. Impression trays can be used to take impressions of both the edentulous areas in the mouth and the dentate areas. This allows dentists to create dentures that fit seamlessly with any remaining natural teeth and accurately replicate the missing teeth and supporting tissues.
Furthermore, dental impression trays can also be used to take impressions of the mouth and oral structures for other dental procedures, such as the fabrication of dental crowns, bridges, or orthodontic appliances. For dental impressions of the teeth and upper and lower jaw, dentists use standard trays as well as custom trays made of different materials and in different designs and sizes, ensuring accurate representation of the teeth. Impression trays are available, for example, in plastic for single use and in stainless steel for repeated use. In complex jaw conditions, custom dental trays are often required to ensure accurate dental impressions.
Impression trays also play a vital role in maintaining consistent thickness of the dental impression material, thus ensuring the precision of the resulting dental impressions.

Disposable Perforated Plastic Impression Trays
In this category we offer dental professionals, including dentists, a range of impression trays and dental impression kits. For example, we stock dental impression trays made of plastic in different designs and sizes. The standard impression trays can be used for the upper jaw, the lower jaw, the anterior teeth or for the specific, isolated impression of one half of the jaw - edentulous as well as fully dentate. Alginate is the most commonly used dental impression material because it is easy to handle and accurately captures the details of the teeth.
All our plastic dental trays have perforations that hold the respective impression material in the impression tray ensuring precise dental impressions. In addition, the perforated, blue disposable impression trays in our online dental shop have rounded edges that reliably prevent the occurrence of abrasions and chafing in the mouth. The perforated impression trays can be used with all common impression materials in dentistry, such as alginate or dental silicone putty.
Disposable dental trays offer an added advantage by eliminating the need for time-consuming cleaning and reprocessing. Once used, they can be conveniently disposed of, saving valuable time and effort for dental staff.
Economical Impression Tray with Foil Technology
In addition, we offer the Miratray Implant Intro Kit from Hager Werken, an economical dental impression tray with foil technology, designed to capture precise impressions of the teeth during implant procedures. This system eliminates the need for individual trays during implant impressions, resulting in significant cost savings.
The foil technology of these trays ensures precise closure on the impression pins, facilitating controlled, safe, and clean impressions. Available in various sizes for the upper and lower jaw, these single-use trays can be purchased individually or as a complete pack.
A dental impression tray is suitable for toothed, partially toothed and edentulous jaws and can be used with all common implant systems and implant impression materials.
