  2. The Affinity Light Body impression material is placed after the Re-Cord #00 cord has been carefully removed, making sure to keep the tip submerged.

  3. The Quad-Tray Xtreme is placed immediately upon completing the syringing of the light body. The patient is asked to passively close. If no segmental bite registration has been taken prior to the impression, the patient may need to be guided into position.

  4. While holding the tray by the sides, the impression is gently removed from the patient’s mouth. Never torque the handle of the tray to prevent bending of the aluminum body.

  1. This case involves preparations for four anterior all-ceramic crowns.

  2. Gingival retraction and hemostasis are achieved using Ultradent’s tissue management system. A two-cord technique is shown using Ultrapak #00 as the first cord at the bottom of the sulcus and Ultrapak #1 as the top cord around the preparation margin.

  3. After careful removal of the #1 cord, Affinity Light Body High Flow hydroactive impression material is placed. Particular attention must be placed on avoiding air entrapment. Keeping the impression tip submerged and allowing the light body to lead the way prevents air bubbles consistently.

  4. Poor impressions often result when too little light body is placed on the dentition. Often the tray material over-displaces the light body resulting in the impression being taken with mostly tray material, which has less accuracy than the light body. Affinity Light Body flows beautifully without slumping.

  5. Affinity InFlex tray material is placed in the Anterior Quad-Tray X2 and inserted into the patient’s mouth. InFlex becomes very rigid and supporting of the dual-arch tray. The Anterior Quad-Tray X2 has high perforated sidewalls which retain the impression material nicely.

  6. Notice the fine detail in the final impression. Specifically, all margins are clearly visible and easy to read. The preparations are also covered in Light Body rather than tray material. Affinity, combined with the Anterior Quad-Tray X2, will provide consistently accurate impressions for numerous anterior restorative cases.
