The Alma Papilla Gauge uniquely has two scales that allows both vertical and horizontal recordings to be taken of the desired anterior tooth position.

An essential requirement for a successful denture is to prescribe the exact position of the upper anterior teeth at a correct vertical dimension. The Alma Papilla Gauge provides a new level of simplicity by achieving this in two dimensions. It is especially useful if the old denture has been severely damaged or is lost.

The Alma range of products offer a comprehensive and versatile contribution to successful prosthetics techniques used and recommended by leading dentists and technicians and appreciated by many patients.
