How To: Tips & Techniques
best practices for palate wax application
Remove the try-in wax to prepare the model for wax up. Heat a Wax Spatula to melt lab wax onto the model. Spread the wax until a thin first "skin" layer is created. Then heat Palate Wax pattern until it begins to slightly warp and place it over the area; festoon if needed. With a Wax Spatula or Wax Carver trim off excess wax (be sure not to trim off the exact amount, leave extra to account for error), and begin to seal the edges.
Use a pencil eraser to shape the flanges
When it comes to creating contour and festooning, our fingers can create too many divots. To create a very smooth and natural contour, shave the eraser of a pencil into a wedge shape. Use the wedge in between teeth or other nooks and crannies to achieve a natural festoon.
best practices for lingual wax application
Heat a Wax Spatula to melt a thin layer of lab wax onto the model. Then slightly heat Lingual Wax pattern for easier application. The Lingual Bar Wax has a thin and thick side, place the thin side of the pattern against the teeth going slightly over the teeth and other small areas. With a Wax Spatula or Wax Carver trim off excess wax (be sure not to trim off the exact amount, leave extra to account for error), then heat instrument to begin sealing the edges to the bottom.
