Challenging Nature: Wax-up Techniques in Aesthetics and Functional Occlusion
Fabrication of posterior prosthetic teeth is an art that requires technicians to reproduce the minute details of occlusal form using difficult methods of wax-up. Written for students as well as experienced clinicians, this landmark book will change the way that technicians wax up teeth.
This book guides readers, step-by-step, through the author's revolutionary wax-up technique to recreate the complex morphology of premolar and molar teeth. Lavishly illustrated throughout, each chapter builds technical knowledge with chapters on nomenclature, morphology, wax handling and application, functional wax-up sequences for maxillary and mandibular dentition, and adhesive cementation and culminates in a series of impressive clinical cases. A must-have resource for any dental technician wanting to review occlusal form and improve the functional morphology of posterior restorations.
