Simple tool for taking fantastic impressions

My dental nurse helps me when I’m impression making by holding the patient’s lips forward and out with small lip retractors. These help me to visualise the ridge and see more clearly where I need to position the tray. They help with accurate tray positioning and allowing flow of the impression material to the depth of the labial sulcus before border moulding.

Two photographic retractors were cut down and polished to do this. This video shows how they are used.

They are brilliant!
