How do thermoforming mouth trays – Flexi Trays work?

Innovative technology applied in Flexi Trays development allowed Dr. Martin Schwarz and its partnering institutions to create thermoforming mouth trays of features similar to those in products made by collecting dental impression from patients. Instead of alginate used in creating professional teeth imprint at the dentist, in Flexi Trays the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate have been applied. This major change has allowed shortening the time of mouth trays creation from several days – as it takes place in dental offices, to just several minutes. Thermo-fitting mouth trays – Flexi Trays are also suitable for an independent moulding procedure at home without a need for dentist assistance. The product is intended for a few sessions only however if properly taken care of – it might be used longer. Thermoforming mouth trays usually do not provide an as close & precise fit to the teeth as the custom made dental trays made by the dentist.

Tips on how to use Flexi Trays set more effectively:

Don’t keep mouth trays in hot water for too long.

Failing in adjusting mouth trays correctly, usually happens when they are kept in hot water for too long. This is the worst scenario that can possibly happen because edges of melted trays, would stick together or become damaged and therefore useless. To avoid this problem, simply immerse the mouth trays in hot water (just after boiling) for around 5 seconds. Then carefully place the trays into your mouth for modelling.  If the outcome is not satisfying simply repeat the procedure. Don’t keep mouth trays in hot water for too long.

Use Wooden tool

Keeping a mouth tray in hot water with bare hands sometimes might be challenging. To facilitate the procedure wooden tool such as wooden cooking stick might be of use. Form only one mouth tray each time and repeat the moulding with another one. 

Suck the air / water while fitting the trays

In order to generate the best fit of the mouth trays, it is recommended to keep them as close to the teeth as possible. After immersing thermoforming mouth trays in hot water, apply them on the teeth. Use your fingers to press the mouth trays towards the teeth from both sides and inhale the air/ suck the water out from the trays. This procedure allows fitting mouth trays closer to the teeth and impacts the final result of tray customization. Remember that mouth tray fitting should be conducted with only one tray at a time, so after fitting the first mouth tray – repeat the procedure with the second one.  

Use ice cold water to harden the trays and trim

Since thermoforming mouth trays are vulnerable to thermal factors, it is advised to keep their shape after fitting with the use of low temperature. Assure that the shape of the mouth trays is properly adjusted and then place them in icy cold water. This action will prevent the shape of the trays from changing. When the desired shape is successfully achieved, trim unnecessary part of mouth trays for convenience of usage.
