Diagnostic Wax Up

It is important to understand the significance of the diagnostic wax up. The diagnostic wax up is a planning procedure that accurately shows the patient, dentist, and lab tech what is realistically attainable for the patient’s restoration. When the wax up is finished, it provides a 3D model of the patient’s new teeth which can be used to create temporaries that will aid in the evaluation of fit and comfort for the patient before the final restoration.
