In vitro investigation of the integration depth of oral fluids and disinfectants into alginate impressions

The objective. The objective of this work is to prove that oral cavity fluids diffuse into alginate mass of impressions. In addition, the information is presented on the subject that disinfectants used for alginate impressions disinfection not only diffuse into alginate mass but penetrate deeper than oral cavity fluids.
Materials and methods of the study. Three examination groups were formed for the research, the results of which evidenced how deeply oral cavity fluids and disinfectants ‘Alpha Guard GF’ and ‘Orbis’ could possibly diffuse into alginate impression material ‘Kromopan 100’. In the first examination group ten impressions from the upper jaw dental arch and mucosa were taken, firstly colouring oral cavity fluids with a special colouring tablet MIRA-2-TON (Hager Werken). Cuts were randomly selected from impressions and scanned aiming to establish the depth of the coloured oral cavity fluid penetration. In the second and the third examination groups taken alginate impressions were accordingly soaked in ‘Alpha Guard GF’ and ‘Orbis’ with pigment and later randomly selected cuts were scanned in the same manner as in the first research group.
Results. The research results establish that coloured dental cavity fluids maximum diffuse into alginate impression is up to 540 µm with the presence of 95% of discolouring while disinfectants
‘Alpha Guard GF’ and ‘Orbis’ accordingly diffuse into alginate mass up to 710 µm and 870 µm with the presence of 95% of discolouring.
Conclusions. The results obtained show that disinfectants using them according to the recommendations of a manufacturer, diffuse into alginate mass deeper than oral cavity fluids at the time of impressions taking.
Key words: alginate impressions, disinfection of dental impressions, oral cavity fluids.
