Multi-purpose dental wax used in the fabrication of dentures. Most often used to build trial plates for the arrangement of artificial denture teeth.
Baseplate wax is also used for a variety of other dental laboratory processes, including: inlay patterning, boxing of impression, casting, establishing the arch form, establishing the level of occlusal plane, recording the maxillary mandibular relation, corrective impression, and bite registration.
This is done for initial modeling and later fitting of trial dentures (try-ins) before the finished product is completed.
Designed for use in the dental lab, Carmel baseplate wax is rigid at mouth temperature but able to be molded at higher temperatures without cracking or tearing. It also resists flaking or chipping during carving. Finally, it leaves no residue upon boiling out.
