The Metal Quadrant Impression Tray is a rigid, aluminum dual-arch quadrant tray. Designed to eliminate common clinical challenges such as impression distortion, burn through, and palatal impingement, the Metal Quadrant Impression Tray can help deliver unparalleled impression accuracy every time.
- Wide Arch
The wide arch design prevents burn through of the teeth, a common problem with most plastic trays.
Adjust the tray’s arch width to suit virtually any patient’s arch size.
- Low Sidewalls
This design feature prevents palatal impingement and axial roll of the tray wall, which are common causes of distortion.
- Easy To Use
The quadrant technique used with this product makes impressions easy.
- 25% Thinner Distal Bar*
To prevent distortion due to impingement in the retromolar pad area, the distal bar is thin and tapered.
- Shorter Lingual Wall
Without limiting the number of teeth you can impress (up to four), the lingual wall of the Metal Quadrant Impression Tray is designed to prevent impingement on the lingual of the patient’s anterior teeth, particularly in smaller mouths.
- Retention Bars
Two upper and two lower retention bars along the inside of the buccal and lingual tray walls help lock the impression material to the tray, preventing material dislodgement.
- Attached Mesh
With no loss of rigidity, the Metal Quadrant Impression Tray is one of the only metal trays with attached mesh. This design detail prevents impression material from dripping and ensures it flows around the distal wall, forming a secure lock between the material and tray.
- Extended Mesh
The mesh extends slightly toward the handle to ensure the accurate capture of up to four teeth.
