Has anyone received a reline where the dr has used alginate?

Because the alginate wasn't accurate, had voids all over the place. Did they pour it as soon as the impression was taken?

I have never seen that in 42 years. Why did you send it back?( I'm about to text him back and need to choose my words.)
It's a inappropriate material. Proper alginate requires 5-6mm minimum and must be poured in 10 minutes or less.
A reline impression is typically 1-2mm.
You can do it, but don't be surprised if you have to reline again...

Originally delivered the c/c wax tryins as processed completed dentures.

When the lower broke, that wasn't enough of a clue and they let the pt keep the upper till I called them and they took 2 days getting the upper back.

The 1st pic is the impression in the baseplate/waxup they took to process. They said it was fine to do it on this when I called.

Now they don't work well enough after they were great to use as wax tryins?

They just got fired.
