Has anyone received a reline where the dr has used alginate?
It's a inappropriate material. Proper alginate requires 5-6mm minimum and must be poured in 10 minutes or less.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.)
He just texted back" no worries ,I'll do it chairside.Mo

A reline impression is typically 1-2mm.
You can do it, but don't be surprised if you have to reline again...
Good for you!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.
