The specimens were prepared at standard laboratory conditions (23°C ± 1°C) by dispensing impression material from the cartridge into the already assembled steel mold, through lateral apertures specifically designed for placing the differently shaped cartridge tips. Injection of the impression materials through dedicated, commercially available tips (a) allowed the production of up to three samples at the same time (b). Refined dumbbell test specimens ready for the test (Instron machine). 1 The amount of shrinkage is lower with polyvinyl siloxane materials compared to polyether materials. ... measurements showed that the polysulphide materials were the most viscoelastic followed by silicone and polyether impression materials. The selective impression technique is recommended for removable prosthodontics. A performing material should display high yield strength and adequate elastic recovery and should require the expenditure of large amounts of energy to initiate and propagate tearing. Heavy-body materials showed higher tensile strength than the light bodies from the same manufacturer. Upon removal of the stress, an ideal elastomer will exhibit complete elastic recovery; the segments spring back to prestressed conformations and the piece returns to its original dimensions. 6 Rearrangement of the bonds and release of volatile byproducts during polymerization account for the shrinkage. 12 vinylpolysiloxane, 2 polyether, and 3 hybrid vinylpolyether silicone-based impression materials were tested. }, author={M.

In addition, the changes in viscoelastic properties of these materials during setting are discussed. This … This is one of the four types of impression materials discussed in Chapter 8, Impression Materials. In addition, the changes in viscoelastic properties of these materials during setting are discussed. E. Properties of Polysulfide Impression Materials – Polysulfide impression materials are much more accurate than alginate. HB = heavy body; MB = medium body; and LB = light body. Polysulfide 3. Within the heavy bodies, Aquasil TSb was statistically comparable to Affinis (4.93 MPa) and Flexitime (4.91 MPa), while within the light bodies Aquasil (4.98 MPa) was comparable to Exa’lence (4.03 MPa) and Flexitime (3.02 MPa). 0000026653 00000 n This appears in accordance with Lu et al.’s work [9] that demonstrated that the PE impression materials tested had significantly lower tensile strength and higher strain in compression compared to new addition silicone materials. shows the properties of different elastomeric impression materials. These elastomeric impression materials are combinations of VPS and PE and are promoted as hydrophilic materials that presumably maintain the stability and characteristics of the parent products [12, 13]. the actual impression material is the most influential [11,18]. The yield strength determines the materials’ ability to withstand stress without permanent deformation. The polymerized material have to maintain its elasticity under stresses created, for instance, when it flexes over tissue undercuts. Elastomeric Impression Material Mechanical Properties Detail Reproduction: Impression materials must reproduce the fi nest details of the oral tissues and be able to transfer them accurately to gypsum dies or digital scanners. 0000005602 00000 n The impression taken should be highly precise, thus, requiring specific care when manipulatingthese materials. The clinical tear performance of a material also appears crucial [15, 16]: it involves complex interactions between polymer and fillers, flow to a particular film thickness, release properties from tooth and soft tissue, presence of internal and surface defects, and rate of impression withdrawal. 0000008532 00000 n A timer was started immediately after the impression material was first dispensed into the mold. The complete list of the materials employed is summarized in Table 1 and included 12 VPSs, 2 PEs, and 3 VPESs. Copyright © 2015 Dino Re et al. Although new elastomeric impression materials have been introduced into the market, there are still insufficient data about their mechanical features. Table 2. The USb (mm) and the Sy (mm) were recorded. Four types of elastomeric impression materials are available for crowns and fixed partial denture impres-sions : addition silicone, condensation silicone, polysul- Materials with different consistencies (heavy-, medium-, and light-body) were investigated. Comparing the different viscosities of products from the same manufacturer, heavy-body materials showed higher tensile strength values than the light bodies; such a difference proved to be not statistically significant () for Aquasil (HB: 5.1 MPa, LB: 4.98 MPa—) and Impregum (HB: 1.49 MPa, LB: 1.47 MPa—). This material commonly involves … 0000016047 00000 n Based on the results of the present study, the null hypothesis that there was no difference in the tensile properties among the different impression materials and consistencies tested was rejected. Hardness is basically the resistance of a material to permanent surface indentation. Four silicone impression materials… The strain at yield point (Sy) of Exa-LB was not statistically different from the highest Sy values, which were yielded in the present study by the Flexitime and Hydrorise light bodies. Tensile strength at break (TSb), yield strength (YS), ultimate strain at break (USb), and strain at yield point (Sy) of seventeen commercially available elastomeric impression materials with heavy- (HB), medium- (MB), or light-body (LB) consistencies were evaluated in this study. We are committed to sharing findings related to COVID-19 as quickly as possible. 2007 Oct;16(5):343–51. This paper describes the development of an instrument for determining consistency, working time and setting time of elastomeric impression materials. A different behavior was recorded for the VPES material, whose medium and light viscosities (MB = 3.16 MPa; LB = 4.03 MPa) showed significantly increased TSb values () compared to the HB viscosity (1.42 MPa). 0000031199 00000 n For this purpose, a stainless steel split mold made out of two perfectly fitting upper and lower plates was used (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)). 1.

The success rate of prosthetic tasks relies on different factors. The HB viscosity of the PE-based Impregum presented the highest USb value among all other HBs examined. Before injection, a small amount of material was extruded and discarded to ensure proper mixing in the dispensing tip. There are 4 groups of elastomers; polysulfide, condensation silicone, addition silicone and polyether; each differ in their setting mechanism and their physical and chemical properties. Tensile strength at break is the maximum tensile stress applied in stretching a specimen to rupture [9]. Beside Affinis group, all the other tested VPSs showed slightly increased but statistically similar YS values when the HBs were compared with the corresponding LBs produced by the same manufacturer.

Materials and Methods Table 1 gives details of the materials used in this study. Rheological properties of elastomeric impression materials for selective pressure impression technique. The choice of an impression material for particular applications should be based on the specific property data rather than on the type and class of the elastomer. Hondrum investigated the changes in the properties of nonaqueous elastomeric impression materials over time and on exposure to various environmental conditions. Hondrum investigated the changes in the properties of nonaqueous elastomeric impression materials over time and on exposure to various environmental conditions. The value is provided with two numbers: one represents the hardness at 90 seconds after removal from the mouth; the other at 2 hours. After complete setting and mold removal, any excess impression material residue was carefully trimmed away with a razor blade. ADA, “Specification no.

In addition, the applied ANSI/ADA specification just takes into consideration a thickness of 2 mm for the fabrication of samples. This can be probably seen as a further clinical advantage of the new VPES hybrid material. Tray modification had little effect on the amount of pressure produced. Purpose. The distortion of an impression material beyond its elastic range may cause permanent deformation and renders it inaccurate [15]. Three areas of each specimen narrow portion were measured and checked three times to accurately confirm their width and thickness, which were averaged to obtain a final measurement. The table provides data on three of the most important mechanical properties for four elastomeric impression materials. Only for PE impression materials the heavy body showed higher Sy values than the light body (HB: 48.23 mm, LB: 18.56 mm). The material located at or close to undercut areas could permanently deform on removal. Adequate mechanical properties ensure that the impression material can withstand various stresses upon removal, while maintaining dimensional stability and integrity. The specimens were loaded in tension until failure (Figure 5) with a crosshead speed of 250 mm/minute. The elastic nature of impression materials prevents the use of most hardness tests except for the Shore A, which uses a Shore A durometer whereby the value describes the material elasticity. In this study, we examined the rheological properties of elastomeric impression materials, both before and during setting, to assess the clinical significance of certain key characteristics such as viscosity, pseudo-plasticity, and the rate of development of elasticity. University of Michigan School of Dentistry Ann Arbor, Michigan. The strain at yield point indicates the amount of undercut an impression material can overcome without permanent elastic deformation. Nevertheless, impressions are clinically subjected to tensile forces immediately after the manufacturer’s setting time. Each uppercase letter relates to the corresponding dimension as indicated in Figure, Shape of dumbbell test specimens produced according to type 1 of the ISO 37:2005 specifications and/or type C of ASTM.D412 specifications. Vinylpolysiloxanes (VPSs) (addition silicones) have a moderately low-molecular-weight silicone that contains silane groups. Tear ,tensile , and yield strengths are important properties for impression materials; they have been investigated by several studies [ , ,,].Luetal.havefoundalowertensilestrengthof This may highlight an advantageous peculiarity of the new VPES hybrid material, which showed very high tensile strength values for the light- and medium-body viscosities.

Surface properties and castability of elastomeric impression materials after plasma cleaning Clinically relevant mechanical properties of elastomeric impression materials. Future researches are necessary to simulate the clinical oral behavior of impression materials. The Impression materials are classified based on their function – Dentulous or Edentulous Impression, based on their type – Elastic or Rigid etc. 0000029133 00000 n Accuracy of impression is depends on dimensional stability of impression material, 22 and influenced by a number of factors such as impression technique, impression tray and properties of the impression materials. Mechanical Properties of Elastomeric Impression Materials: An In Vitro Comparison, Department of Oral Rehabilitation, Istituto Stomatologico Italiano, University of Milan, 20122 Milan, Italy, Department of Medical, Oral and Biotechnological Sciences, University of Chieti, 66100 Chieti, Italy, Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, University of L’Aquila, 67100 L’Aquila, Italy, Affinis System Heavy Body 360 (dynamic mix), Coltène/Whaledent AG, Altstätten, Switzerland, Flexitime DYNAMIX Heavy Tray (dynamic mix), Exa’lence Regular Set Heavy (dynamic mix), Zhermack SpA, Badia Polesine (RO), Italy, Impregum Garant Duosoft L (syringe automix). The tensile properties of 17 hydrophilic impression materials with different consistencies were compared. Benchmarks were drawn on the specimen, 12.5 mm on either side of the center line, thus setting the test length of the dumbbell specimens at 25 mm, according to ISO 37:2005 and ASTM.D412 (Table 2). This allowed for the production of up to three samples at the same time (Figure 3(b)). VPSs consistently showed higher tensile strength values than PEs. Properties of elastomeric impression materials Working and setting times Dimensional stability Reproduction of oral structure details Disinfection Tear … Materials possessing elastomeric properties include both natural and synthetic rubber, urethane, polyurea and polymeric coatings. Classification of Elastomeric Impression materials: Till now the elastomeric impression materials are divided into 3 types based on the material used. Materials investigated included a polyether impression material, a polysulfide material (light, regular and heavy consistencies) and an addition-reaction Flexitime showed the highest Sy values among the LB products (56.57 mm) and the lowest values among the HB materials (9.43 mm). 0000007383 00000 n It should however be considered that although heavy-body impression materials showed higher tensile resistance, the tensile properties of light bodies appear more clinically relevant, since the most likely torn portions of the impression are the thin interproximal and crevicular areas. Elastomer properties include resilience — some elastomeric materials can be stretched repeatedly to twice their length and return to their original shape. Revised ANSI/ADA Specification no. – However, they are not as accurate as other non aqueous elastomeric materials. From the standpoint of clinical application, materials with high tensile strength are not necessarily considered to be superior to the materials with low tensile strength. The operating principle involves the application of a fixed compressive strain and the resulting stress is measured. – An alcohol by-product rather than water is formed. As for the TSb, also regarding the yield strength (YS), the HB VPSs showed slightly increased mean values compared to the corresponding LB viscosities; however the differences in yield strength were statistically significant just for Affinis (HB: 2.85 MPa, LB: 1.12 MPa). 10 0 obj <> endobj xref 10 66 0000000016 00000 n – The y are based on silicone rubber, which is com monly used in other industries. 0000002021 00000 n A normal distribution was verified for the analyzed variables before applying statistical tests. Group discussion about Properties of Elastomeric Impression Materials (Synthetic Elastomers) Elastomeric impression materials are in common use. Nevertheless, according to the authors, it is also desirable that the material tears rather than deforms on a critical point such as a margin, as in clinical practice it appears easier to properly judge and consequently discard a torn impression, rather than a deformed one. Comparing the different brands within the same viscosity, Heraeus Kulzer Flexitime and Zhermack Hydrorise showed the highest USb values both among the light bodies (101.25 mm and 90.39 mm, resp.) An Impression material is the substance used to achieve a negative reproduction of the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity, to attain the perfect reproduction of the Oral cavity the Impression material needs to have certain ideal Properties to achieve the perfect impression or reproduction of the patients oral cavity and tooth or teeth in question. 0000035392 00000 n Where subgingival margins are concerned, the selection of a more rigid material with higher yield strength can be an important clinical criterion. 0000002284 00000 n Apart from the chemical nature of the material, the primary method of classification is according to consistency. Tear, tensile, and yield strengths are important properties for impression materials; they have been investigated by several studies [6, 9, 14, 15]. It is also apparent from Figs 2 and 3 that some materials such as the polysulphides have substantial changes in properties with time after setting compared to the silicone or polyether impression materials. Heavy-body VPSs generally showed higher TSb values than the light bodies from the same manufacturer. 0000033977 00000 n J. Dent. For each material, 10 dumbbell-shaped specimens were fabricated (), according to the ISO 37:2005 specifications, and loaded in tension until failure. Immediately following preparation (Figure 4), the specimens were secured into the Instron universal testing machine (Instron Corp., Canton, MA, USA), gripping them on both sides by pneumatic clamps at the location of the previously applied benchmarks. Purpose. However, the viscoelastic rheological properties of impression materials, particularly the time-dependent viscoelastic changes in impression material immediately after tray seating, are unknown. Specimens that were not in accordance with the dimensions specified within the ISO 37:2005 (Table 2) were discarded; entirely new specimens were subsequently prepared. . Among the light bodies, the highest yield strength was achieved by the hybrid vinylpolyether silicone (2.70 MPa). Recently, vinylpolyether silicone (VPES) products were commercially introduced. It is related to having the properties of elastomers. Viscoelastic properties of impression materials 125 of the material; for example material E is much nearer to perfect elasticity than material A although the latter is more flexible. A dental impression is a negative imprint of hard (teeth) and soft tissues in the mouth from which a positive reproduction (cast or model) can be formed. This may probably suggest a weak influence of the different viscosities (HB, MB, and LB) on the YS of VPSs, in contrast with what had been observed for the TSb. 0000033833 00000 n Similarly, the dimensional accuracy and a reliable detailed reproduction of both impressions and corresponding models from which a restoration can be manufactured in the laboratory appear mandatory [5]. Tolley LG, Craig RG. Although new elastomeric impression materials have been introduced into the market, there are still insufficient data about their mechanical features. 0000035704 00000 n [20] recently suggested that high impression material rigidity and hardness are not predictors of impression removal difficulty. . As a consequence, an impression material showing a TSb/YS ratio sufficiently close to 1 (i.e., yield strength value relatively close to the corresponding tensile strength at break) should probably be preferred, especially concerning the light bodies, which are generally employed in thin interproximal and crevicular areas. Four types of elastomeric impression materials are available for crowns and fixed partial denture impres- sions : addition silicone, condensation silicone, polysul- fide and polyether (18,21,28). Among the light bodies investigated in the present study, both Acqu-LB and Exa-LB showed relatively high mean values for both tensile and yield strength. 0000033493 00000 n tear of elastomeric materials is a mechanical rupture process initiatedandpropagatedatasiteofhighstressconcentration caused by cut, defect, or localized deformation. A method of measuring torsional shear modulus and rigidity of elastomeric impression materials has been developed and is described. Thus, elastic recovery is important in determining the accuracy of an impression material [9]. Start studying Elastomeric Impression Materials. 0000030913 00000 n A classification and some properties of these materials is given in the ISO Standard for Dental Elastomeric Impression Materials (ISO 4823). Creep compliance measurements were shown to be effective in characterizing the elastic, retarded elastic, and viscous properties of polysulphide, silicone, and polyether impression materials. In this study, we examined the rheological properties of elastomeric impression materials, both before and during setting, to assess the clinical significance of certain key characteristics such as viscosity, pseudo-plasticity, and the rate of development of elasticity. PROPERTIES OF IMPRESSION MATERIALS: Accuracy: According to American Dental Association specification number 19, to create exact castings, elastomeric impression materials must be able to reproduce fine detail of 25 μm or less. Permanent deformation occurs upon elongation of the segments past the point where elastic recovery is possible. 0000112465 00000 n 2015, Article ID 428286, 8 pages, 2015. https://doi.org/10.1155/2015/428286, 1Department of Oral Rehabilitation, Istituto Stomatologico Italiano, University of Milan, 20122 Milan, Italy, 2Department of Medical, Oral and Biotechnological Sciences, University of Chieti, 66100 Chieti, Italy, 3Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, University of L’Aquila, 67100 L’Aquila, Italy. Concerning the ultimate strain at break (USb), statistical analysis showed that heavy-body VPSs had significantly reduced mean values compared to the corresponding light bodies, with the exception of Affinis (HB: 47.19 mm, LB: 47.55 mm) and Aquasil (HB: 34.53 mm, LB: 45.88 mm). PVS impression materials can make details of even 1 to 2μm. Under stress (load/area), the segments will uncoil. Elastomeric refers to the rubber-like properties of a polymer, i.e., a material being able to regain its original shape when a load is removed from the material. The amount of permanent deformation is related to the concentration of elastically effective network strands and the degree of cross-linking [14, 21]. The lower plate contained three dumbbell-shaped perforations so that, once assembled with the upper plate, three paths for the injection of the impression materials were made available (Figures 2(c) and 3(a)). The visco-elastic properties of a number of set elastomeric impression materials were determined using a torsional pendulum apparatus i.e. The ideal impression material should exhibit adequate mechanical properties to withstand stresses under various clinical scenarios. 0000002483 00000 n HB VPSs had steadily lower Sy values compared to LB viscosities. Mean values (and standard deviations, SD) recorded for tensile strength at break (TSb), yield strength (YS), ultimate strain at break (USb), and strain at yield point (Sy) in the different experimental groups. 12 vinylpolysiloxane, 2 polyether, and 3 hybrid vinylpolyether silicone-based impression materials were tested. Materials investigated included a polyether impression material, a polysulfide material (light, regular and heavy consistencies) and an addition-reaction 0000011224 00000 n On the other hand, a difficulty of removing impressions made of polyether from the mouth, and also an increased risk of die breakage, could be associated with the higher rigidity of these materials when compared to VPS [11]. 0000033223 00000 n – However, they are not as accurate as other non aqueous elastomeric materials.

The choice of an impression material should be based on the specific physical behavior of the elastomer. Dimensions for dumbbell test specimens according to type 1 of the ISO 37:2005 specifications and/or type C of ASTM.D412 specifications. The medium-body materials of some brands (Flexitime and Hydrorise) presented intermediate USb values, while for other brands the USb of the medium body was comparable to the corresponding LB (Aquasil) or HB (Exa’lence, Affinis). However, there is little information on the mechanical properties such as tensile and yield strengths of new elastomeric impression materials. Comparing the different viscosities of materials produced by the same manufacturer, heavy-body VPSs showed higher tensile strength values than the light bodies. Polyethers showed the lowest tensile (1.44 MPa) and yield (0.94 MPa) strengths, regardless of the viscosity. 0000016441 00000 n Surface properties of elastomeric impression materials J. Dent.
