Impression-taking: How to overcome the problem presented by facial hair
Time-consuming and often painful
Impressions need to be taken for diagnostic purposes among other reasons. In many cases, excess impression material becomes caught in the facial hair of male patients. The subsequent removal of these bits and pieces of impression material is time-consuming and also painful for the patient.
Heightened efficiency, heightened satisfaction
This problem can be eliminated. The solution is very easy: Simply use a soft lip and cheek retractor, for example, OptraGate to prevent this kind of situation altogether. The lip and cheek retractor covers the lips and cheeks of the patient and therefore also a large part of the facial hair. The result: Stray bits of impression material no longer have to be removed from facial hair, which renders the process much more efficient. Furthermore, your patients will be happy, because they have been spared an unpleasant experience.
