Waxing 101
A Hands-On Course

There are many indications in our everyday practice that “waxing” plays an important role in our clinical procedures. A patient presents with the lingual cusp broken off of an upper premolar and a wax-up is needed to serve as a form for a stint for provisionalization. Or incisal edge length needs to be added to a preoperative model to illustrate the new aesthetic proposal. Or a diagnostic wax-up needs to be completed so the outcome of reconstruction can be evaluated.

These are just a few of the indications for the application of “waxing” in our everyday practice.  The dilemma is that often our waxing skills are less than desired. This hands on course id designed for the dentist or assistant who wants to learn the fundamental skills to waxing. You will learn:
