The purpose of this article is to introduce a novel impression technique. The procedure demonstrates a building, or layering, method of impression making that maintains the integrity between layers of the impression materials of varying viscosities and controls the path of insertion, minimizing the incidence of overextension. To build a detailed impression of the tissue-bearing surfaces, the clinician selects the proper viscosity of impression material based on the diagnosed tissue condition.
