- “We would switch to this product because it has great detail and is very user friendly.”
- “There were air bubbles in the material.”
- “It set up too fast at times, even when mixing and working quickly.”
- “Different packaging would be preferable – a container that the bag goes in, a sturdy tub/canister, unit doses for ease of use, or a resealable bag to effectively close the bag once opened.”
- Follow the instructions and have the patient rinse first – it makes it easier to remove the impression.
- Use very cold water and spatulate well. Make sure the amount of water matches the measure to ensure the correct consistency.
- Apply air lightly around the teeth- leave slightly moist to help prevent bubbles at the margin.
- The stiffness of the material helps with impressions for dentures.
