Aquaform positions bands precisely in their correct relationship in the impression. Read about how this results in perfect transfer models.
Dr. Lloyd Taylor presents the complete Aquaform transfer technique
100% accurate transfer models are required to produce perfectly fitting transpalatal bars, lingual arches, and palatal expansion appliances. When appliances do not fit, orthodontists and technicians blame each other. The problem is al-ways the relationship of the molar bands to the transfer model. Aquaform easily and consistently solves this problem.
Many orthodontists simply seat the bands in the impression or use sticky wax and wires to maintain band position. Unfortunately, bands often move as the impression is being poured.
Using thermoplastic Aquaform as a locked-on transfer key positions the bands precisely in their correct relationship in the impression, resulting in a perfect transfer model every time.
