ABSTRACT:
The aim of this review is to describe and understand the different types of dental waxes used in complete dentures, removable partial dentures and fixed partial dentures and the importance of dental waxes in dentistry. Many procedures in dentistry require the use of waxes. Waxes used in dentistry are combinations of two or more natural waxes plus small amounts of additives, such as oils, natural resins, synthetic waxes, and coloring agents. There are different waxes used specifically for clinical and laboratory procedures. The ultimate goal of the combination of waxes and additives is to produce dental waxes that possess a set of given physical properties over a specified range of temperature. Therefore, the successful use of waxes must be with a full understanding of waxes’ characteristics.
