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 mandibular and implant removable prosthesis. The method will describe a one-appointment procedure delivering superior detail of both hard and soft tissues and implant fixtures.
