Diagnostic Wax-ups

A diagnostic wax up is required for any situation where a significant modification of tooth form is required.


  • Diagnostic wax ups provide a diagnostic prototype for anterior esthetic changes and functional modifications like vertical dimension changes. They can be duplicated to provide a stent for provisional fabrication.
  • It is recommended that that you provide the following for complex diagnostic wax ups: 2 models of the arch to be waxed so a comparison model is maintained. In addition a face bow or stick bite is recommended to minimize the possibility of anterior canting. For complex repositioning cases, pre-prepared models are also recommended.
