Steps for taking your teeth impression: UPPER TEETH

  • Taking a high quality teeth impression is essential because we need an exact replica of your teeth so we can build a high quality product for you.
  • Read instructions carefully before you start your teeth impression.
 

Step 1: Clean/brush your teeth & Stand in front of amirror and take out the impression trays. The upper tray is solid
across the top.

Step 2: Take the upper tray and fit it over your teeth
in the center of the impression tray to make sure you see how it feels and fits. Take away from your mouth and put aside.

Step 3: Open two sets of the purple and white 

impression material (Putty)

  

Step 4: Knead/mix the pieces of putty together
for minimum 1 minute using your finger.

Step 5: Roll the putty into a log (or finger shape).
Load the putty into the upper tray and spread the
putty evenly, filling from edge to edge (all parts of
the inside of the tray) with your fingertips.

Step 6: Place the tray over the center of your
teeth, using your fingers gently push or press
the tray all the way up over your teeth until the
tray stops. The most common mistake is that the
tray is pushed too far into the mouth and the
front teeth are not in the center arch of the tray.
Allow your upper lip to rest over the top of the the tray.
Step 7: Let the putty harden for 4 minutes
while it is on or over your teeth.

Step 8: Open your mouth and pull straight
down to remove tray from teeth and then pull tray

forward to remove from your mouth.

into the plastic bag included. (Do not
remove putty from the tray. Do not seal
the plastic bag.)
