How To Take A Dental Impression.

Brush your teeth and make sure your hands are clean.

Adjust the dental tray to the size of your mouth. They are adjustable in width by pulling the two halves of the tray apart. The tray can also be made smaller by snapping off a section(s) of the plastic in the rear of the impression tray. Your teeth should be centered in the tray.

Vigorously mix both parts (A & B) of impression material together until a uniform color is reached. This step is time sensitive and should be done as quickly as possible (about 20 sec).

The impression material should then be rolled into a 4 to 5 inch tube.

Place impression material uniformly into the tray and firmly push onto your teeth. Confirm that the teeth are evenly settled in the impression material.

It will take about 4 minutes for the material to fully harden. During this time you want to move as little as possible. After 4 minutes the material should feel firm to the touch and the impression can be removed.

Remove tray in a single motion, by pulling either up or down.

Rinse tray and seal in enclosed bag.

If you have any questions about your impression you can email a photo to Info@SportingSmiles.com
