The detail reproduction of ground moist dentin surfaces with hydrophilic and hydrophobic elastomeric impression materials and the transfer of details onto stone casts produced from such impressions were investigated. Practically no difference was found in the detail-reproducing ability of the six impression materials and that of the dies produced therefrom. The surface roughness data were not related to the degree of hydrophilicity determined as the contact angle between water and impression… CONTINUE READING
