Advantages of a Wax Up

A diagnostic wax-up enables representation of the substance loss per tooth (in the vertical dimension) and reconstruction with modelling wax. Such a dental wax-up shows the type and number of teeth to be treated, gaps or free ends in their redefined function. The parameters which define functional and eugnathic dentition are created here by subtraction or addition.

The dental wax-up can assist in decisions on orthodontic treatment, coronaplasty or prosthetic reconstruction.
