Dental impressions play a vital role in restorative dentistry. Knowledge of impression material characteristics and how they influence the impression-taking process allows better material selection. Ideal impression materials demonstrate highly accurate intraoral details, dimensional stability, and optimal patient comfort. However, the perfect impression material and technique depend on specific treatment indications.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Explain the purpose of impressions. 
  • Explain the components of impression materials. 
  • Identify the ideal impression material for different indications. 
  • Describe techniques for taking accurate impressions.
