Carvers, Dental, Wax

Definition : Dental carvers designed to shape or cut dental wax. These carvers are typically slender, handheld, manual instruments with a distal blunt blade in a variety of sizes and shapes; they are frequently heated to soften the wax while creating the pattern. Dental wax carvers are used in a variety of dental procedures, including formation of bite patterns for casting custom dental prostheses, construction of nonmetallic denture bases, and registration of jaw relations. Some carvers are double-ended instruments with different configurations at each end and can be used to carve other substances (e.g., dental amalgam) in addition to dental wax.
