3M ESPE introduces Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS in cartridge delivery

Jan. 8, 2015
3M ESPE introduces Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS impression material in cartridge delivery to add versatility to Imprint 4 product family.

With the latest introduction of 3M ESPE's Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS impression material in cartridge delivery, dentists can now reach for a full selection of Imprint 4materials in a variety of delivery systems, allowing them to take advantage of Imprint 4’s benefits for nearly any impression-taking procedure.

“Imprint 4 Preliminary has already proven itself to be efficient and reliable,” said Dr. Jeff Blank of Carolina Smile Center in Fort Mill, South Carolina. “Now, with availability in the cartridge delivery system I will have even more flexibility to quickly create great-fitting temporaries in any operatory in my practice.”

Imprint 4 Preliminary VPS impression material makes creating precise provisionals a simple process. First, the dentist captures the preliminary impression, with a setting time as short as 90 seconds using the super 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. Just a quick wipe with alcohol reveals the shine.

Since the Imprint 4 VPS product family was introduced in 2013, it has received high praise for its high marginal accuracy and fast intraoral setting.

“The Imprint 4 family makes impression-taking super fast and super accurate,” said Dr. James Braun of Saginaw, Michigan. “It’s great to now have these reliable options for both preliminary and final impressions.”
