At PRO-Craft Dental Laboratory we've worked with a variety of dental impression materials over the past 40 years we have been in business. Based on our experience there are a few brands we recommend that deliver the least amount of remakes and adjustments.

You know all laboratories live and die by the impression. At PRO-Craft Dental Laboratory we've been monitoring our remakes and adjustments for many years. We know what impression  materials are most successful, which ones are less successful.

Dental Impression Materials

For example we know that Impregum and Aquasil deliver the least amount of remakes and adjustments in the labs. Not sure why, but that's been our experience. My only assumption has been that there's something in their manufacturing system that maintains their consistency better than the other materials. So whatever it may be that's the best guess that we have. And that's our experience with those two materials. One's a polyether and the others are polyvinyl now the

Dental Tray Systems

Next most important thing is the tray system. We found that the quad tray from Clinicians Choice is our most successful tray. In fact we like it so much that we stock some here at the laboratory. We have them available whenever you need them. Just give us a call we're happy to send you out some samples if you think you might be interested. If you have a question about any of your cases just give us a call we'll send you out a complimentary starter kit and answer all your questions.
