Abstract: Functional impression technique is an important stage in complete denture treatment. Its proper performance ensures the exact representation of gingivobuccal sulcus and the stability and retention of the final prosthesis during the function. Purpose This study aims to investigate the impression materials about functional impression technique in complete dentures fabrication. Material and methods An anonymous questionnaire was constructed and administered on paper, and it was mailed to 98 dentists from different regions of the country. Respondents were 53 men and 35 women. Results Majority of the dentists make less than 10 dentures per year. In the highest percentage of cases, they fabricate set of upper and lower dentures. The majority of the respondents dont give the answer about preferable impression materials and about average width of the gingivobuccal sulcus. The most of the dentists pour gypsum models to 2 hours after the impression procedure. Conclusion Clinicians dont pay attention to functional impression material, which is related to a small amount of fabricated dentures.
