Preparing a tray,2. Preparing the material,3. Making an impression,4. Removing the impression,5. Preparing stone, casts and dies.14Preparing a tray The use oI a custom tray reduce the quantity oI the materials used tomake impressions,any dimensional changes oI the materialscan be minimized.W Particularly true Ior PolysulIides.W Adhesion oI impression material to the tray is essential.13Preparing a tray W The use oI custom trays not so critical Ior addition silicone &amp; polyether as thesematerials arestiIIer and have lesspolymerization shrinkage.W Disposable stock trays works satisIactory.W Tray adhesives is also needed Ior stock trays.16Preparing the materialMixing systems:W 3 systems available Ior mixing atalyst and Base paste:1. Hand mixing,2. Static automixing,3. Dynamic mechanical mixing.17Preparing the materialW Hand mixing: Equal lengths oI catalyst and base, Initial mixing circular motion, Final mixbroad strokes, Mixing completed in 45 seconds. Hand mixing is available Ior all 4 types oI elastomeric materials.18Hand mixingW ManlpulaLlon 8ase AcceleraLor on mlxlna padMlxlna of Lhe base AcceleraLor wlLh a Lapered sLlff bladed spaLulaPreparing the materialW Two putty system variation in hand mixing. Available with condensation and addition silicone. Scoops available Ior dispensing, Putties kneaded with Iingers until Iree Irom streaks.20Preparing the materialW Static automixing: Base and atalyst supplied in separate cylinders oI the plastic cartridge. artridge placed in mixing gun containing 2 plungers advanced by ratchet mechanism to extrude equal quantities oI base and catalyst. UniIorm mix is obtained21Preparing the materialW Static automixing:W Advantage : 1. Fewer voids than hand mixing,2. 3 to 4 times less material wasted than hand mixing,3. Less air incorporated in mix,4. Mixing time is reduced,5. less contamination oI the material 22Preparing the materialW Automixing guns and mixing tips available Ior all consistencies except putty.W Addition silicone, condensation silicone and polyethers available with this type oI mixing.23Automatic mixing gunPreparing the materialW Dynamic mechanical mixing: atalyst and base supplied inlarge plastic bags housed in a cartridge which is inserted into the top oI the mixing machine. When button is depressed, parallel plungers push against collapsible bags thereby opening the bags and Iorcing material into the dynamic mixing tip. mixing is accomplanished by rotation plus Iorward motion oI the material since internal spiral is motor driven.23Preparing the materialW Dynamic mechanical mixing:W Advantages: ease oI use, speed, thoroughness oI mixing and higher viscosity materials can be mixed with ease.W Disadvantage : costly and more material wasted than automixing but less than hand mixing.W Polyether and Addition silicone available with this system.26Impression making Impression techniques: W 3 common methods Ior impression making:1. Simultaneous, dual-viscosity technique,2. Single-viscosity or monophase technique,3. Putty-wash technique.27Impression making W Simultaneous, dual viscosity technique: Low consistency material is iniected with a syringe into critical areas. High consistency material is mixed, placed in an impression tray and inserted in the mouth The more viscous tray material Iorces the lower viscosity material to Ilow into Iine aspects The materials ioin, bond and set together 28Impression making W Single viscosity or monophase technique: Impression taken with medium viscosity material. Addition silicone and polyether can be used with this technique because they have a capacity Ior shear-thinning. When medium viscosity material is Iorced through impression syringe, the viscosity is reduced, whereas viscosity oI material in tray is unaIIected.29Impression making W Putty wash technique: Two approaches used-- two stage and one stage procedures.Two stage procedure: Preliminary impression taken in putty consistency material beIore the preparing the teeth. Space is provided Ior low consistency material in the impression. Low consistency material is syringed into the impression and the preliminary impression is re-inserted.30Impression making W Putty wash technique:Single stage procedure: Wash material is syringed into place Unset putty is seated over the light body material Occlusal stops are provided in the tray to avoid pushing through the wash material when seating putty mass.31Impression making W Low and high consistency material bond and aIter the low consistency material sets, impression is removed.W Putty consistency and this technique was developed Ior condensation silicone to minimize eIIects oI dimensional change during polymerization.W It can also be used Ior addition silicone.32Removing the impressionW Impression should not be removed until curing has progressed to the extent to provide adequate elasticity so that distortion will not occur.W Typically, impression should be ready Ior within atleast 10 mins Irom time oI mixing, allowing 6 to 8 mins Ior the impression to remain in the mouth.W All elastomeric materials are viscoelastic and it is necessary to use a quick snap to minimize plastic deIormation oI the impression during removal. 33Preparing stone casts and diesW All elastomeric materials are compatible with all types oI gypsum products.W The excellent dimensional stability oI addition silicone and polyether materials makes it possible to construct 2 or 3 casts or dies Irom these materials but time interval should not be greater than 30 mins.34PolysulIideW PolysulIides: First rubber impression materials.W Available in 3 consistencies:1.low(syringe orwash),2. medium(regular), 3.high(tray)33ComposlLlon Base paste: 1.PolysulIide polymer,2.

Same Iiller andplasticizer as basepaste, 3. Alongwith oleic acid or stearic acid-- retarder.361vpes of polvsulphlde maLerlalsllahLreaular heavv bodledPolysulIideW Setting reaction: Main component: MultiIunctional Mercaptan(--SH) or polysulIide polymer. Lead dioxide ( oxidizing agent)PolysulIide Water( byproduct )38PolysulIideW The reaction results in a rapid increase in the molecular weight , converting the mixed paste to a polysulIide rubber.W The reaction is slightly exothermic- increase in temperature oI 3 to 4 degree.W Lead dioxide- gives characteristic Brown color.39Mechanical properties W Elastic recovery 96 , W Flow 0.4 to 1.9 , indicating tendency to distortW Least stiII W High Ilexibility, advantage over silicones and polyether is that removal Irom undercuts is easier40PolysulIideW Advantages:1. Long working time,2. High tear strength,3. High Ilexibility Ior easier removal Irom undercuts,4. Good Ilow beIore setting,5. Good reproduction oI surIace detailW Disadvantages:1.

Ease oI mixing,3. Good surIace detail reproduction,4. Least hydrophobic,5. Good stability,6. Delay pour.W Disadvantages:1. Short working and setting times,2. High stiIIness aIter setting, 3. Bitter taste,4. Needs to block undercuts,5. Leaches components,6. High cost.33Addition silicone W Frequently called as Polyvinyl siloxane or vinyl polysiloxane impression materialsW Available in : a. extra lowb. low/lightc. medium d. heavye. extra heavy.36omposition W Base paste:1.Polymethyl hydrogen siloxane (low molecular weight polymer) , 2.Hybrid silicone and 3.Fillers.W atalyst paste:1.Divinyl polydimethylsiloxane , 2.Platinium salt activator (chloroplatinic acid)and 3.Fillers (Retarders may also be present.)37Setting reactionW Polymethyl hydrogen siloxane divinylpolydimethyl siloxane platinium salt activatorSilicone rubber. W No reaction by-products.38Addition silicone W However, a secondary reaction between moisture and residual hydrides oI the base polymer can lead to the development oI hydrogen gas that can result in pinpoint voids in the gypsum casts that are poured immediatelyW ThereIore, Platinium or Palladium is added to act as a scavenger Ior the released hydrogen gas or to wait 30 mins or more Ior pouring the impression.39Addition silicone W SulIur contamination Irom latex gloves have been shown to inhibit the setting oI addition silicone. These compounds can contaminate platinium containing catalyst which results in retarded or no polymerization.W Instead Vinyl or Nitrile gloves can be used.60Addition SiliconeW Disadvantage oI this material is their inherent hydrophobic nature.W Distortion at the impression margins is caused by undetected moisture in the area to be replicated.W A Nonionic surIactant is added to make surIace oI impression hydrophilic.W This will allow impressionmaterial to readily wet soIt tissues and capture maximum details.61Mechanical propertiesW Working and setting time Iaster than polysulIides. Retarder is oIten supplied to extend working time.W Excellent elasticity and very low dimensional shrinkage upon storage, thus can be poured up later.W Greater rigidity, hence, diIIicult to remove Irom undercuts as they have lower Ilexibility valuesW Tear strength less than po...</p>
