What type of tissue retraction would you recommend for best results with digital impressions?
One good option for tissue retraction before digital impression taking is the use of a laser. The Odyssey Navigator Diode Laser (Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc.) can be used not only for tissue recontouring and retraction before impressions, but also for many other soft tissue procedures. It is convenient, easy to use, and was given the highest rating by Clinical Consultants of THE DENTAL ADVISOR.
