Abstract

A smooth wax pattern is imperative to reduce the polishing time of the subsequent casting. The detailed occlusal anatomy is often the most difficult portion of the wax pattern to smooth. This article describes a procedure for making a device that can be used to smooth the detailed anatomy of a wax pattern. It also describes how to use the device.
