Either placing a small amount of silicone lubricant over the teeth in a prophylactic paste or rehydrating through a rinse is necessary to produce a new film over the teeth for accurate impressions. The polysulfides and condensation silicones have the largest dimensional change during setting, in the range of −0.4% to −0.6%. after removing a PVS impression from the mouth it is found that the surface has unset material on it. It has poor dimensional stability (imbibition or dessication is a problem), must be poured within 10 to 12 minutes of impression making or distortion becomes a major issue, and is good for only one pour per impression . The viscoelastic properties are influenced by the molecular weight of the polymer powders and the power/liquid ratio . Materials with high dimensional stability are the polyethers and polyvinyl siloxanes, in contrast to alginate, which has a low dimensional stability. Materials with a low wetting angle flow extensively. Claims are made with respect to polyvinyl siloxane materials being hydrophilic, but in reality they are somewhat hydrophobic . Of all the materials, the addition type silicone materials, Aquasil and Exaflex, had relatively greater accuracy and stability. When it does set, it does so immediately . It is recommended that one wait at least 30 minutes for the setting reaction to be completed before the gypsum casts and dies are poured . the least accurate of the elastic impression materials is. In addition to these criteria, the following criteria should be considered: how well a material is tolerated by patients, obtaining the best results for the least amount of expense, and occurrence of minimal changes when in contact with disinfection chemicals. If a comparison of the various categories of impression materials is made based on hydrophilic versus hydrophobic nature, wettability, the amount of detail reproduced, their dimensional stability, the rigidity of the material, the tear strength of the material, and the contact angle of the material, the selection of the right material is made easier. Of all the materials, the addition type silicone materials, Aquasil and Exaflex, had relatively greater accuracy and stability. Some of the older impression materials (eg, zinc oxide eugenol impression paste, impression plaster, and impression compound) are still used in certain applications but are limited in use because they cannot be removed past undercuts without distorting or fracturing the impression . Glutaraldehydes are the disinfectant of choice for zinc oxide eugenol impression pastes . Because they have an extended flow period, they serve well as functional impression materials. When using polyvinyl siloxanes, moisture control is critical to ensure success for predictable clinical impression making. Flexible impressions are easier to remove from the mouth when set. The material is thicker when it is cold and more difficult to express and mix . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jdent.2004.04.002. Gilmore, Schnell and Phillips in a study on the accuracy of rubber impression materials concluded that the most accurate results were attained only when the impression was poured immediately. They have a hydrophilic part and a silicone-compatible hydrophobic part. The hydrophobic nature of an impression material relates to its inability to work in a wet environment and still provide accuracy in an impression. CONCLUSIONS: The accuracies varied among the 10 impression materials over three rounds. The hydrophobic aspect of polyvinyl siloxane impression materials has an adverse effect on surface quality of the polymerized impression material . Dental impression materials are used to register the form and relation of the teeth and the surrounding oral tissues. Polysulfides and polyethers are more hydrophilic. The relationship between static and mobile oral structures must be reproduced accurately … (2) Two addition type silicone materials, Aquasil and Exaflex, had the greatest accuracy and stability. September 26, 2018. vinyl polysiloxane dental impression materials used for making accurate dental impressions with excellent reproducibility. Accurate impressions are necessary for construction of any dental prosthesis. Polyvinyl siloxanes are fairly stiff, and depending on the viscosity of the material, they flow readily to capture areas of detail . Because these materials are moderately hydrophilic, strict attention to disinfection guidelines is necessary to prevent swelling of the material. However, contamination from the latex proteins in gloves may interfere with setting of this material. Materials used without adequate knowledge of their characteristics can impair a successful outcome. Although VPS materials are likely to be more accurate than other materials, diffe- rences in accuracy (assuming correct manipulation) are likely not clinically significant. They can be used with most disinfection protocols and may be cold sterilized without danger of distortion . Materials such as hydrocolloids, polyethers, and methacrylates may require specific disinfection protocols to prevent distortion of the material after setting . Vinyl polysiloxane silicones (also called addition silicones, polyvinyls, vinyls, and polyvinyl siloxane) are considered state-of-the-art for fixed partial denture impressions. The shrinkage is the result of the evaporation of volatile byproducts and the rearrangement of the bonds with polymerization. Tissue conditioners are composed of a powder that contains poly (ethyl methacrylate) and a liquid that contains an aromatic ester-ethyl alcohol (up to 30%) mixture. These materials have low tear strength and usually tear on removal if not careful . It distorts from disinfection if not performed correctly because of its hydrophilic nature and may swell if placed in water or disinfectant for a period of time. It is not a rigid material, and impressions are easier to remove than with polyethers and polyvinyl siloxanes. Researchers recommend that it be sprayed with disinfectant for 10 minutes, rinsed, and dried immediately before pouring in dental stone . A three-dimensionally accurate impression is a pre-requisite for implant restorations since there is no intervening periodontal ligament at the implant-bone interface to compensate for any inaccuracies [1, 2].Numerous factors impact on implant impression accuracy, including the technique, the materials used, and the number of implants, as well as the parallelism of the implants or abutments.

With elastomeric impression materials such as polyvinyl siloxane, polyether, and polysulfide, the dimensional accuracy is usually time dependent, with greater dimensional accuracy occurring immediately after polymerization is complete but declining as the impression is stored for extended periods of time . They are fairly easy to remove. Because hydrocolloids are hydrophilic, they swell if immersed in water or disinfectant . The second and third stone dies were made 1 and 24 h later, respectively. Some vinyl gloves also may have the same effect because of the sulfur-containing stabilizer used in the manufacturing process . Selecting the Best Impression Materials for Accuracy. Polysulfide impression materials have a high resistance to tearing but stretch and do not recover completely elastically . 1. Wettability results in fewer voids and less entrapment of oral fluids, providing more accurate impressions . Because many dentists send their impressions to a laboratory to be poured, this characteristic should be considered when choosing an impression material . Because each impression was used to make three rounds of stone dies, two-factor mixed factorial ANOVA was used to evaluate the effect of materials and storage time on the accuracy of the stone casts. Presence of moisture results in impressions with voids or pitted surfaces, and the detail reproduced is inferior. The large loading of filler showed less discrepancy. Y1 - 2012 The hydrophilic versus hydrophobic nature of materials is discussed as it relates to flow characteristics, which result in more bubble-free impressions. Numerous investigations have been done regarding the effect of delayed and repeated pours on the accuracy of elastomeric impression materials. The relationship between static and mobile oral structures must be reproduced accurately for an optimum cast. Aquasil is an exception because it does adhere to itself after setting. To date, several implant impression techniques have been introduced and evaluated for accuracy. This is probably true with respect to any impression material when comparing hand spatulation to automixing. All impression materials will provide better accuracy and minimal distortion when used with a paired tray adhesive that is allowed to dry following manufacturer’s recommendations. This material does taste bitter, although it is currently flavored to offset the taste. Dryness minimizes the moisture content of tooth surfaces and contributes to sticking of the alginate; ultimately, it leads to inaccurate cast pours. The requirements of impression materials can be conveniently discussed under four main headings: (1) Factors which affect the accuracy of the impression. In the line criteria, the sum of the scores and mode of scores that Zinc oxide eugenol was more accurate followed by Polyether and Silicon, while Aluwax was the least accurate. Accessories such as intraoral tips, mixing tips, and various types of tray systems are also important when weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the delivery systems of impression materials. The accuracy of 11 agar impression materials was compared with that of eight alginate and one addition silicone systems of light, regular, and heavy viscosity (Jorgensen, 1982a). The success of the prostheses depends on the accuracy and dimensional stability of the impression materials used and the impression techniques utilized. Most materials in this category do not adhere to themselves after they have set and would not be able to be used for border molding or correctable impression technique. Small amounts of sulfur interfere with setting of the critical surface next to the tooth and produce major distortion . Impression materials are used to record intraoral structures for the fabrication of definitive restorations. The base consists of a polysulfide polymer (terminal/side chain −SH groups), titanium dioxide, zinc sulfate, copper carbonate, or silica. This material adheres to itself and can be used to border mold or make correctable impression techniques. Impression materials that are currently popular include hydrocolloids, addition silicones, polyethers, and polysulfides. Polysulfide impression material is dimensionally accurate if poured within 1 to 2 hours of making the impression . It is available in Putty and light body consistencies to aid dentists make perfect impressions for fabrication of crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays and veneers. Viscosity is altered by changing the amount of silica filler, which produces either a putty or less viscous wash material. These materials should have low shrinkage upon polymerizing and remain stable, which allows them to be poured days after making the impression. Master casts are used for producing complete dentures, removable partial dentures, crowns, fixed partial dentures, and implant prostheses. Impression materials are used to record intraoral structures for the fabrication of definitive restorations. The accuracies varied among the 10 impression materials over three rounds. This study was designed to compare the dimensional accuracy of casts obtained from three impression techniques for three definitive lower casts with implants at different angulations. Their ability to reproduce detail is excellent and they are dimensionally stable and allow multiple pours of accurate casts for 1 to 2 weeks after impressions are made, provided there is no tearing of the impression. They do not tear easily (high tear strength), which enables the dentist to get good subgingival detail without tearing the impression on removal. 8 When the current generation of impression materials are removed from the mouth, today’s chemistries of elastomeric materials allow for the capture of surface detail along with the ability of the material to be removed … Limitations of the polyvinyl siloxanes involve their hydrophobic nature . Polyvinyl siloxanes are hydrophobic because of their chemical structure. The viscosity is altered by adding different amounts of titanium dioxide powder to the base. They work well for implant impressions, in which posts must be transferred accurately . Methods. alginate. Because the addition silicones require a small amount of catalyst (platinum compound) to initiate the setting reaction, anything that interferes with the catalyst (preventing cross-linking of the material) causes the surface of the impression to remain tacky . Because their wetting angle is low, they capture a full arch impression easier than with polyvinyl siloxanes . Moisture from saliva or blood can interfere with accurate impressions. Depending on the manufacturer, many of the materials are available in cartridges for automixing and tubes or containers for hand spatulation. A comparison between vacuum-mixed, mechanically-mixed and manually-mixed techniques was evaluated for each impression material. None of the tested materials allows safe finishing of a complete-arch fixed partial denture on a … The addition silicones have the smallest change, approximately −0.15%, followed by the polyethers, approximately −0.2%. Because some polyvinyl siloxane materials exhibit a phenomenon known as hydrogen out-gassing, if you pour casts too soon the stone captures these bubbles and produces a cast with pitted areas . Impression materials. Tissue conditioners are formulated to have specific viscoelastic properties. They have low rigidity and require rigid trays to support borders; otherwise they tend to distort. AU - Chang, Won Gun. Polyvinyl siloxanes are generally hydrophobic. This thin layer causes impressions to remain tacky around new composite placed restorations . Materials with a high wetting angle do not flow easily into small crevices and are poor candidates for use in fixed prosthodontics. The snap-set behavior of the soft polyether materials allows the material to not start setting before the working time ends. Objectives. It is relatively low cost and comes in flavors that are more patient friendly. In this study the dimensional accuracy of two model materials; dental stone and plaster of Paris, reproduced from three commonly used impression materials; alginate, polyether and addition-cured silicone, retained by their adhesives in acrylic resin trays and exposed to four disinfectant solutions w …. Automixing cartridges tend to create fewer bubbles than hand spatulation. (2) Factors which affect the dimensional stability of the impression, that is, the way in which the … Practitioners should take this characteristic into consideration when selecting impression materials given the time available to the practitioner to pour casts during office hours. Impression materials with low contact angle enable dental stone to flow easily, and relatively bubble-free casts are produced. Hydrocolloids would be considered the most hydrophilic. It has a moderately high wetting angle, which makes it a little more difficult to create an accurate full arch impression than with hydrocolloid, polyether, or polysulfide. It is recommended that a disinfectant spray be used while the impression is placed in a plastic bag for 10 minutes, at which time the impression is rinsed with water immediately and the cast poured . The plasticizer makes each material unique and offers a different period of flow after the set. When mixed with water, the alginate material first forms a sol. Results. Of all the materials, the addition type silicone materials, Aquasil and Exaflex, had relatively greater accuracy and stability. Conclusions. Angulated implants may result in inaccurate impressions, and the impression technique may affect the accuracy of the definitive cast. Materials and Methods . Improved polyether formulations such as the “soft” polyethers are easier to remove, maintain proper rigidity for a wide range of applications, and capture fine detail even in moist conditions . Once set, hydrocolloid does not adhere to itself and cannot be used to border mold. The impression materials studied included three alginate impression materials (Algiace Z, CAVEX and Jeltrate), five commercial silicone impression materials (Aquasil, Exaflex regular type, Express, Coltex fine and Rapid liner) and two experimental silicone impression materials designed for this study (KE106A and KE106B). Dental impressions must be highly accurate. Most of the impression materials available today provide superb accuracy if they are manipulated correctly. All types of elastomeric impression materials undergo shrinkage caused by polymerization, and materials with reaction byproducts undergo additional contraction. Materials used without adequate knowledge of their characteristics can impair a successful outcome. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. Factors affecting the accuracy of elastometric impression materials. The newer materials are supposedly able to be poured in 5 minutes after the impression material is removed from the mouth. The following chemical reaction forms a gel to create the set impression material. As a group, the distortion of condensation silicones was severe … So whether you’re doing a multiple-unit implant with an open tray impression or a traditional crown impression with heavy body/light body impression material, 3M has an impression material that will work for you. The way to avoid latex contamination is to wear polyethylene gloves over the latex gloves or not wear latex gloves during the impression procedures. For group A, an autopolymerizing acrylic resin was used to splint transfer copings. They are a superior material to hydrocolloids and somewhat better than polyvinyl siloxanes . A machined aluminum reference model with four parallel implant analogues was fabricated. Hydrocolloids, polyethers, and polysulfides have relatively low contact angles. Note that addition silicones release hydrogen on setting and many require a 30-minute to 1-hour de-gassing period before pouring a master cast or the cast develops surface porosity. Accuracy of the impression is also affected when the percentage of deformation and the time involved in removing the impression are increased. High impression dimensional stability materials usually can be poured within 1 to 2 weeks after the impression is made and still produce an accurate cast . Four implants (Arrow Mytis Implant System, Brainbase Co. Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) were parallelly placed in the edentulous mandible model using the surgical guide at canines and first molar areas. They would be detrimental in making full arch impressions of periodontally compromised or mobile teeth. Their dimensional stability is fair and usually provides only one pour per impression. Because the material has a low wetting angle it makes a full arch impression easier than with polyvinyl siloxanes or polyethers. AU - Lim, Bum Soon.

The reaction produces hydrogen, which is scavenged by the platinum. Because of their hydrophilic nature, using polyether and polysulfide impression materials is more compatible with the inherent moisture present in mucosal tissues . The discrepancy of the alginate impression materials increased with storage time. It is not as strong as polyethers or polyvinyl siloxane impression materials. In an alginate impression compound, calcium sulfate dehydrate, soluble alginate, and sodium phosphate are in the powder. Three implant impression techniques, using 3 different splinting materials, were assessed for accuracy in a laboratory model that simulated clinical practice. accurate impression is essential.5 Impression technique, type of impression material,6 splinting or non-splinting impression copings, type of splinting material, number and angulation of implants7 are the factors that affect the accuracy of impression. The material is moderately rigid and can be more easily removed than polyether materials. The accuracies varied among the 10 impression materials over three rounds. minimal dimensional change on setting, very accurate impression … This material comes in flavors and is not much of a problem from the standpoint of taste. Before they set, however, they are susceptible to contamination. Also present are fillers, plasticizers, and triglycerides. Accurate impressions are necessary for construction of any dental prosthesis. There is a greater tendency to trap air bubbles when pouring stone because of its moderately high contact angle, so greater care is required when pouring stone . AU - Bae, Kwang Hak. Accuracy of impression is dependent on dimensional stability of impression material , and influenced by a number of factors such as impression technique, impression tray and properties of the impression materials . After reviewing the types and characteristics of the most common impression materials, it becomes apparent that hydrocolloids have a high hydrophilic nature that allows this material to capture accurate impressions in the presence of some saliva or blood . incomplete mixing of the material, residual ferric sulfate astringent on … Impressions should be rinsed with water and then disinfected . Where subgingival margins are concerned, this can be an important criterion. The most popular elastomer used in the dental practice today is the polyvinyl siloxane (PVS). The present study evaluated dimensional accuracy of master casts obtained using different impression trays and materials with open tray impression technique. Wettability of an impression material relates to the ability of the material to flow into small areas . Three Osseolink implants were placed in three reference models … Unfortunately, it does not adhere to itself, which makes it unavailable for border molding or correctable impression techniques. (3) The experimental material KE106A had the least accuracy in the first and second rounds and the alginate impression material CAVEX had the least accuracy in the third round. Addition silicones (which are the most popular because no reaction byproducts are formed) involve the linking of a vinyl siloxane in the base material with a hydrogen siloxane via a platinum catalyst . They contain functional groups that chemically attract and interact with water molecules via hydrogen bonding . The contraction is lower for these two products because there is no loss of byproducts . The hydrophilic nature of polyether impression material is manifested in carbonyl (C=O) and ether (C-O-C) groups, whereas polysulfide material has hydrophilic disulfide (-S-S-) and mercaptan (-S-H) groups . It reproduces detail with excellent results but its dimensional stability is only fair . The setting reaction of hydrocolloids is not affected by latex proteins from gloves. Clinically, it should produce an accurate impression secondary to its adaptability to oral structures, have a consistency that is dimensionally stable to resist tearing but results in an atraumatic removal, set within a reasonable amount of time, demonstrate biocompatibility to include a hypoallergenic nature, and have a reasonable cost per use. 2. Accuracy and dimensional stability of impression materials have been the traditional goals of researchers and clinicians. Impressions were made of 10 metal dies that mimicked prepared crowns. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Polysulfide impression materials are supplied as two paste systems. An accurate impression is an important step in processing and final fitting of dental prosthesis . They are rigid materials and may be more difficult to remove than polyvinyl siloxanes . For your crown and bridge impressions, 3M offers accurate impression materials to fit your dental impression technique. This is usually seen in the dental office in the form of latex gloves or rubber dams. Polyether and polysulfide impression materials also leave the mouth coated with a chemical film that inhibits polyvinyl siloxanes. There is also a greater tendency for alginate to stick to teeth if they are dry. When alginic acid (prepared from a marine plant) reacts with a calcium salt (calcium sulfate), it produces an insoluble elastic gel called calcium alginate. Aquasil (Caulk/Dentsply) is slightly hydrophilic . In these instances, permanent deformation occurs relative to the type of elastomeric impression material used . The gypsum compatibility and the dimensional accuracy of the cast used to fabricate the cast are crucial for diagnostic and (Such changes would be insignificant for clinical applications, such as study models and working casts.) Irreversible hydrocolloid impression material is routinely used for the purpose of reproducing hard and soft intraoral tissues.
