Avuegum Monophase: Hydrophilic vinyl polysiloxane impression material used as one step impression material for implant impressions, edentulous, Crown & bridge impressions.
The flow or viscosity of an impression material is dependent on the filler content. There are four basic categories: low (syringe or wash material), medium (one-step monophasic material), high (tray material), and very high (putty material)
AvueGum Medium body captures fine details for precise impressions it is stable as tray material and once prssure is applied will turned in low viscisity material.
It allows for accurate, void-free impressions even in moist conditions.AvueGum low contact angle along with tooth surface helps ensure an accurate impression in the presence of Saliva/GCF
Excellent hydrophilicity and outstanding thixotropy during processing and high final hardness after setting, the medium-viscosity material satisfies the requirements for perfect monophase impressions.
This helps in reducing the need for costly adjustments, remakes and retakes.
Avuegum Monophase Impression material improves both, wettability on the tooth surface and model detail reproduction.
The ability to record the tooth preparation accurately during the impression stage is critical for producing well-fitting crowns and bridges.
Viscosity is important when subgingival margins are to be captured. The ability of the impression material to reach the base of the sulcus is not only dependent on the viscosity but also the width of the sulcus. A wide sulcus allows for greater flow and thickness, which increases tear strength. Whichever method of sulcus preparation (mechanical, chemical, or surgical) is employed, it is critical that sufficient space is provided.Its shear thining property helps to incease its flow
Addition polyvinyl siloxane impression materials have four types of viscosity to suit different needs.The medium body is commonly used as a monophase material or single-viscosity technique during crown and bridge work or for dentures.
