Carmel Baseplate Wax is a dental wax composed mainly of paraffin, microcrystalline wax, resin, and discreet color-matching choices. This wax is relatively hard and slightly brittle at room temperature but becomes soft and pliable when heated. It is used to establish the initial arch form in making trial plates for the arrangement of artificial denture teeth and the construction of complete dentures.

In the US, Dentsply has discontinued my favorite baseplate wax, Type III extra hard. I have tried at lease six or seven other waxes but none of them performed the way that the old Dentsply wax did. Now, I have found one that is very close to the old Type III extra hard. It is Carmel Industries Pink #3 /Mauvelous Pink. Thank you!!
