Taking Impressions

STEP 1

Clean your teeth.

Be sure your teeth are sparkling,
clean and flossed or you might get
an incorrect reading. If food particles
get stuck on the putty, it will render
the model unusable.

STEP 2

Wash your hands.

Give your hands a thorough wash
and dry before putting on your gloves.

STEP 3

Grab a towel.

Have a towel nearby just in case
you drool!

STEP 4

Choose one of the trays and check to make sure it fits your back two molars,
it may feel uncomfortable. Don’t worry.
If it is too tight or doesn’t cover your
back two molars we will send a better fitting tray right away.

STEP 5

Remove both containers of putty
and let them reach room temperature.
Don’t handle the putty without
gloves on as it may stick to your hands.

The putty is perfectly safe and non-toxic!

STEP 6

Use a timer to stay on track during the model creation.

Start the timer as soon
as you’re ready to mix the putty.
