  9. How deep should the ipression tray be to allow enough material between the tray and incisal edges of the teeth?
    sufficiently deep to allow 2 to 3mm of material
  10. What are the three classifications of impressions in dentistry?
    • Preliminary Impression- create production of teeth & sorrounding tissues.
    • Final Impression- Most accurate reproduction of teeth & sorrounding tissues.
