Add a description about this item
You need to bite deep enough into the putty to fully capture your gum line. It’s not enough to simply capture the tips of your teeth. Gently bite all the way down until you feel your teeth come in light contact with the bottom of the tray.
Line up your teeth over the center of the tray before you bite down. If your teeth are too far to one side or too far forward or backward, you will hit the sides of the tray.
The base and catalyst must be fully mixed so it’s one solid color. If there are any swirls of the original putty colors, the putty won’t fully set, so it can’t completely capture your impressions. Always be sure to mix thoroughly until you’ve achieved one solid color.
The tray needs to remain in your mouth for at least 3.5 minutes. If you take it out too early, your teeth will drag along the putty, distorting the length of your teeth and your gum line.
Keep your tray steady when taking impressions. Otherwise, you can create a double imprint of your teeth and gums, or your teeth can scrape along the putty, distorting their actual length and shape. Once you feel the putty on your gums and your teeth have come in light contact with the bottom of the tray, don’t move or adjust the tray. If you need to stabilize the tray, use your thumbs to gently hold the top tray in place.
