The effect of disinfection by spray atomization on dimensional accuracy of condensation silicone impressions

Fariba Saleh Saber, Nader Abolfazli & Maryam Kohsoltani
Background and aims. The condensation silicone impression materials are available, but there is little knowledge of their accuracy after disinfection. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the disinfection by spray atomization on dimensional accuracy of condensation silicone impressions. Materials and methods. Impressions were made on a stainless steel master model containing a simulated two complete crown preparation with an edentulous space interposed using Spidex® and Rapid® impression materials. 44 impressions...
