The patient’s breathing during impression making

Impression taking

I rehearse the procedure thoroughly first before doing the impression – this involves showing and talking through the process. I then take the impression. I talk in a low calm voice (hypnotically) and ask the patient to breathe through their nose (and wiggle their toes) – as distractors.

This helps reduce gagging during the procedure.
