Mix and Roll

Don’t delay! Once mixed, the putty has a 60-second window before it needs to be in your mouth. Mix one tray at a time, starting with the upper. Put the gloves on and mix the blue putty and whiteputty together. (within 25 seconds) After mixing, roll it between your two hands to create an approximate 3 inch rope. (within 10 seconds) Then, place the putty into the impression tray. (within 15 seconds) Once the impression tray is complete, repeat for the lower tray.

Press

With your upper tray, open wide and in one single motion: 1. Center the tray on your front teeth 2. Press the tray deeply and evenly onto all of your teeth. Be sure the impression fits snuggly around all of your teeth and onto your gums.

Wait

Relax! Keep the tray positioned in your mouth for 3 minutes and 30 seconds so the putty can set. We recommend remaining still during this part of the process. After completing your upper impression, it’s time to complete the lower tray! Repeat the same steps as the upper tray and make sure to keep your tongue out of the way.
