3M ESPE launches Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS in cartridge delivery

3M ESPE has released its Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS preliminary impression material in cartridge delivery.

With the new cartridge delivery, dentists now have a full selection of Imprint 4 materials in a variety of delivery systems, allowing even more flexibility for any impression-taking procedure, the company noted.

Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS impression material makes creating precise provisionals a simple process, according to the company. First, the dentist captures the preliminary impression, with a setting time as short as 90 seconds, using the quick version of the material. Then, the impression is filled with 3M ESPE Protemp Plus temporization material and inserted in the mouth. After five minutes, the matrix can be removed to reveal a smooth surface that needs no polishing. A wipe with alcohol reveals the shine.
