Impregum™ Intra-oral Syringe

Innovation for Wash Delivery

Impregum™ Penta™ Polyether Impression Materials feature high level accuracy of detail & dimensional stability.¹ The most important feature is the reliability of the impression - even under difficult clinical conditions - and the high precision fit of the finished work².

Dr. Priti Thanasi, from Broughton Dental Practice, Leicestershire, reported that Impregum Polyether Impression Material is “very good – it’s a reliable and accurate material. I would never use anything else!” – In fact, Priti was so convinced by the benefits of Impregum that she admitted that she hasn’t wanted to try an alternative material!

Features & Benefits

  • The only true polyether impression material on the UK market¹
  • Excellent detail reproduction due to high level of hydrophilicity²
  • Captures fine detail due to excellent flow properties³
  • “snap-set” behaviour
  • Fresh minty flavour

Indications

  • Crown and bridge impressions
  • Inlay and onlay impressions
  • Functional impressions
  • Implant impressions

Technical information

  • Excellent detail reproduction due to high level of hydrophilicity.²
  • Impregum's high level of hydrophilicity² displaces moisture right from the first contact with tissue ensuring uncompromised marginal accuracy and integrity. From the time it is mixed until it sets, moisture in the mouth does not interfere with achieving accurate, void-free impressions.³ This results in great detail reproduction in a wet environment, which is why recent market data suggests most UK dentists prefer Impregum impression material over Vinyl Polysiloxane.&sup4;
  • Less stress due to unique ‘snap-set behaviour’.
  • Its snap-set behaviour ensures that it will not start setting before the working time ends; when it does, though, it does so immediately. Hence, the indicated working time can actually be used to full capacity.

Different formulas, the same precision:

Impregum™ Penta™ Soft Polyether Impression Materials have been developed especially for the monophase technique but additional materials are also available for the heavy body/light body technique

Studies and science

Moisture effect on polyether and vinylpolysiloxane accuracy and detail reproduction

This investigation evaluated and compared the dimensional accuracy and surface detail reproduction of two VPS (Aquasil Monophase, Dentsply and Genie™ Ultra Hydrophilic, Sultan Chemists Inc.) and two 3M ESPE polyether impression materials (Impregum™ Penta™ Soft and Permadyne™ Garant™ 2:1).

Results: Although moisture may not adversely affect the dimensional accuracy of either polyether or hydrophilic VPS material, the evidence suggests that polyether material is more likely to produce impressions with superior detail reproduction in the presence of moisture.

Applicable research in practice: understanding the hydrophilic and flow property measurements of impression materials

Aim of the study: The study investigates the hydrophilic and flow behaviour of impression materials.

Results: Impregum™ Polyether Impression Material (3M ESPE) is most hydrophilic and most flowable compared to the VPS materials investigated. An extensive clinical case with 8 single-unit Lava™ Crowns illustrates the high clinical relevance of Impregum’s excellent flow properties and hydrophilicity. The precision impression with Impregum™ Penta™ Soft Quick Material has earned the appreciation of the dental technician for its detailed accuracy.
