2.  Check retention of the border molded tray then remove the wax spacer and make final impression with medium bodied material. It is important to fill the mylohyoid and retromylohyoid fossa areas and cover the retromolar pad!

3.  Good final impression has border detail and filling of all vestibules. Critical areas are the sublingual areas, retromolar pad coverage and be careful not to overextend past the external oblique ridge.
