Dentistry/Zinc-Oxide Eugenol Paste
Dr. When a dentist takes an upper denture impression with zinc-oxide eugenol paste, is this just a one time impression, or is their a secondary impression also? Thanks
usually that is a final impression...alginates are used for primary impressions where custom trays are fabricated. the secondary or final impression is made with ZOE or some sort of rubber material. some people use a material called accugel as well. i hope this helps.
