The WAX-O-PRESS SYSTEM is introduced to be a system that primarily with the IPS InLine PoM Multi (Press-on-Metal) offers precisely a guaranteed optimum result already from the wax-up stage without wax-up being even necessary as demonstrated on the photos above.
The patented innovation WAX-O-DENTAL WAX-O-PRESS SYSTEMTM for porcelain pressed-on-metal ceramics constitutes a system of pairs of prefabricated wax veneer patterns precarved to fit over hollow pontic frames for practically zero time wax-up of the external anatomical surface of the ready-to-press “complete” wax bridge. The patented Wax-O-Press System gathers a selection of the Total Assortment program of of 202 forms of wax veneers incorporated into 56 6-unit,4-unit and 3-unit anterior and posterior wax veneer blocks with prefabricated occlusion all designed and carved by John Koutavas.C.D.T, to fit over their 160 yellow-coloured paired hollow pontic frames with one goal:
Once you have cast the hollow pontic frame into metal all there is left to do is to apply the corresponding wax veneer pattern over the metal frame which is designed to fit perfectly over it ,complete it from the lingual surface with some ash-free wax and proceed with the thermopressing of the practically prefabricated “complete” wax-metal bridge(instructions video).The porcelain pressed-on-metal wax patterns come in a well-arranged assortment box with an actual size photo-chart on the lid and with additional space for storing separately the individual pontics underneath each base foam-rubber in the correct compartment.
Moreover, the yellow wax preforms of the kit are compatible with any one-layer metal-ceramic system as the IPS InLine One as well any conventional metal-ceramic system as the IPS InLine.
