Impressions and Models

Models should always be poured up in stone. We prefer a Class I to IV stone for all splints. Impressions should be taken with a good quality alginate like Algimax, Kromopan or Silginate from Kettenbach. Impressions should be poured immediately or wrapped with wet paper towel and double bagged with sealable baggies. PVS or rubber base type materials can be placed in a baggie or bubble wrap and sent directly to the laboratory. All impressions should be carefully inspected before sending them to the laboratory.
