Description

The history of making impressions has been the basis of most prosthodontic reservations. Even with the advancement of the Scan-Cad, movable prosthodontics will require exquisite impressions to scan. Scanning all the movements both functionally and statically will require an impression. This presentation will present a layering impression method utilizing several viscosities to accomplish both the functional and mucostatic properties required for proper removable prosthesis. The method will describe a one appointment procedure delivering superior detail of both hard and soft tissues.

Objectives

Objectives

Eliminate the two-appointment impression to one appointment with equal or better quality. Understand why letting the patient mimic their facial movements produces an accurate peripheral role. Learn what facial movements will need to be performed during the maxillary impression.
