Study Notes

  • Anna Yi is a dental professional with degrees in Dentistry, Prosthodontics, and Maxillofacial Prosthetics, and she is a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists.
  • Denture impression compounds are thermoplastic materials softened in hot water or over a flame. They should not be overheated.
  • Maxillary trays for dentures should be 4mm beyond the vibrating line.
  • During border molding, denture material is added to the tray in sections and adequately softened before being shaped to the proper contour.
  • border molding is done by making jaw and border movements to activate certain muscles and determine the thickness of the denture flange.
  • Maxillary arch border molding involves moving the lip down for the labial frenum, the cheek back and forth for the buccal frenum, and the tongue forward to capture the lingual flange.
  • Complete dentures are made using single stage impressions, which record the teeth and soft tissues in their anatomic form.
  • Flabby ridges, caused by excessive bone loss, are a challenge in denture making and may require special techniques.
  • Altered cast impression is a technique used to make a negative likeness of the denture bearing area after the initial tooth impression has been taken. It is commonly used for mandibular distal extension ridges.
  • The Applegate fluid wax impression technique is used in mandibular distal extension ridges when using the altered cast impression method.
  • Making an altered cast impression is a time-consuming process, and it is important to handle the wax carefully to avoid distortion. Reprosil PVS material can be used to overcome the disadvantages of the original wax technique.
  • The lecture objectives include understanding the important anatomical landmarks to capture with the impression, selecting appropriate materials, mastering impression making principles, and producing accurate results.
