A clear vision of the esthetic and functional outcome of a case must be established to effectively communicate the details to the technician who is fabricating the wax-up.

Our new course, Diagnostic Wax-ups, will focus on the clinical process that should be followed to produce a diagnostic wax-up (DWU) that delivers the treatment outcome desired. There are numerous inquiries that will be addressed in this course, such as the purpose of a wax-up fabrication, when a wax-up should be fabricated, what type of wax-up should be prescribed and how to communicate details with the technician.

In this course, the following questions will be answered:
  • Why should you do a diagnostic wax-up?

  • What treatment aids are made from the DWU?

  • When should the DWU be completed (timing)?


At the end of these lessons, you’ll be able to:
  • Evaluate a diagnostic impression

  • Analyze a diagnostic cast

  • Analyze a diagnostic wax-up

  • Evaluate and understand the application of the treatment aids
