Mistakes to Avoid When Taking Your Impressions
Tray not centered
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 may hit the sides of the tray.
Not seated evenly
Improper putty mixing
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.
