Using silicone impression material and acrylic resin to fabricate remount casts for removable partial dentures

Academic Article


  • A technique is described for fabrication of a remount cast for a removable partial denture. This procedure consists of filling the occlusal/incisal third with acrylic resin and injecting polyvinylsiloxane impression material into the irreversible hydrocolloid impression. This technique provides a simple method for making a remount cast and enables the clinician to remove and easily place the partial denture on the cast during occlusal refinement procedures without damage to the removable partial denture or the remount cast.
