PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate creep and viscoelastic properties of dental impression materials after different storage times. METHODS Six commercially available impression materials (one polyether and five silicones) were tested after being stored for 30 min to 2 weeks under both static and dynamic testing. Shear and Young's moduli… CONTINUE READING
