Dental impressions are a core element of any dental practice. They can be used to diagnose malocclusions and perform waxings to design crowns and veneers.
Due to their importance, multiple impression materials have been designed over the years. Although today dental alginate has become one of the most popular options, dental agar is still a great alternative.
However, a dental agar mixer is necessary to make a dental impression with this material.
A dental agar mixer is a machine that automatically mixes the agar agent with the other elements. This results in a putty material that can be dispensed on a tray to take a dental impression.
The dental agar mixer possesses a control panel with buttons to set up the activation time and the temperature.
On top, it has a large opening to place the agar agent. Once the agar has been mixed appropriately, it comes through a faucet in the front.
The agar mixer possesses a rotating blade set that evenly mixes the elements.
Furthermore, it has a series of chambers in its interior that are necessary for the mixing process.
First, one of the chambers boils the agar and transforms it into a gelatinous material. Afterward, it is stored in another heated chamber that keeps the agar gelatinous until the dentist opens the faucet to dispense it on the impression tray.
