Dental Materials, Impression, Compound, Synthetic Resin
Definition : Compound dental impression materials, whose main component is synthetic resin. They are designed to make an accurate negative reproduction of a given area of the oral cavity. These compound dental impression materials have some of the physical properties of natural resins but are different chemically; they consist of a synthetic polymer and a filler. Compound synthetic resin dental impression materials are supplied in fine powder (polymer) and in liquid (monomer); they are mixed to form a gel or dough and processed into a rigid solid. They are used in dental offices for rebasing and for impressions of missing portions of dentures.
