Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors

Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors are ideal for fine trimming of whitening trays to carefully adjust the tray material to the patient’s natural anatomy. After gross trimming of tray is complete, use Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors to precisely trim the borders of the whitening tray as a final adaptation.
Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors feature a spring-loaded design that allows the scissors to open automatically, which helps to reduce finger fatigue.
Precision trimming of a whitening tray requires a precision-made instrument. The small, exact end of the Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors makes creating a border around interdental papillae easy.
The precise tip ends of the Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors grip the tray material, which makes trimming even easier.
Use the Utility Vinyl Cutters beforehand to remove excess tray material after the whitening tray has been cooled and removed from the vacuum former.

Hints & Tips
Do I really need special scissors for trimming a whitening tray?
Other scissors may be able to do precise trimming as well, but the Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors are specially designed to easily cut through the durable vinyl material with precise detail, in the safest and quickest way possible.
Do Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors need to be sharpened?
If properly cared for, Ultra-Trim Scalloping Scissors will provide years of satisfactory use. Like any pair of scissors, over time the blades will begin to dull. When that happens, we recommend retiring the old pair and using a new pair, rather than trying to have the blades sharpened.
When trimming the tray, how close should I come to the gingival margin?
Try to leave about a 0.25 to 0.33mm from the gingival margin.
