Dental alginate is a dental impression material that is used to make a negative mold of your patient’s teeth and surrounding oral cavity. Available in powdered form, alginate is mixed with water to form a gel solution that is placed in a dental tray to make dental impression molds. When working with alginate impression material, it is important to understand the difference between Fast-Set and Regular-Set Alginate. Fast-Set alginate will have a working time of 45 seconds and a setting time of 1-2 minutes, while Regular-Set alginate will allow for a working time of 75 seconds and a setting time of up to 4 minutes. However, the setting times may vary depending on the temperature of the water that is used to mix the alginate. The warmer the water, the faster the set time. Henry Schein offers Henry Schein Brand Regular-Set, Fast-Set and Dustless Alginate to best fit your dental impression needs.
