Dental Materials, Impression, Compound, Wax

Definition : Compound dental impression materials with thermoplastic properties, whose main component is wax. They are designed to make an accurate negative reproduction of a given area of the oral cavity. These compound dental impression materials consist of a base wax (e.g., hydrocarbon or ester types), additional waxes acting as modifiers, colorants, and excipients. Compound wax dental impression materials are supplied in sheets, wafers, and/or sticks. These compound dental impression materials should not shrink or distort as they cool. They are used in dental offices for checking and maintaining accurate occlusal records, for construction of nonmetallic denture bases and for laboratory work.
