Abstract

The success of a fixed dental prosthesis depends on the accuracy of the impression that precisely records the prepared tooth, adjacent tooth, and soft tissues. Various types of impression materials are available for this purpose like alginate, agar, polyether, polysulfide, condensation silicone, and addition silicone. Marginal integrity and internal fit of restoration are of utmost importance for the longevity of the prosthesis. An ill-fitting margin may result in dentin hypersensitivity, dental caries, cement dissolution, plaque retention, and periodontal problems. Literature has described various impression techniques for making an impression of tooth-supported fixed partial dentures to produce duplications as accurately as possible. Each of these techniques has its own advantages and disadvantages. The objective of this article is to review the literature about various impression techniques for a tooth-supported fixed partial denture.
