      cut the tray off the impression first and then strip the impression from the model...I have done a few cu-sils that way and it is always a bit** getting the model off without breaking the teeth....So I just cut the tray off first and then cut the impression off the model..

      I've done this; don't know why I didn't recall earlier.
      If you need a dupe, it'd probably be better to have that in a more flexible silicone instead of trying to repour...

      That's how I do it, time consuming but it works.

      Well at least you poured the model. We got a call Thursday @ 2:45 from an office that closes @ 3 for a pick up, they're closed on Friday so I said I would pick it up this morning @ 7 when they open. So I get back to the lab, open the bag and what do I find, an alginate that hadn't been poured. It sat for 3 days!!!

      At least you don't have to drive to him.

      Oh, wait, dude, you've got to get one of those little battery powered kid cars and drive it to the operatory and back!

      Nice I picked up a 6 hour old alginate once unpoured and thought that was bad.

      Their patient isn't going to be happy about having a new impression taken, the script said she was a gagger.

      Segway.
      Not really your fault, but they will blame you anyway.

      Not my fault at all, they didn't tell me it was a wet alginate when they called, otherwise I would have told them to pour it or stay late and wait for us to pick it up. But you're right we'll get the blame to the patient.
