An alginate impression is used in dentistry to make an exact replica of the patient’s teeth, gingiva, and surrounding tissues in the mouth.
The alginate dental impression forms an imprint (i.e. a ‘negative’ mould) of those teeth and gums, which can then be used to make a cast or ‘positive’ model of the patient’s dentition.
We are professionals striving to lead Dentistry to a high level of excellence while caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients and ourselves.
