One of the commonest problems experienced by a dentist is the broken teeth on the master cast, which occurs during retrieval from the impression, especially when the anterior teeth have gingival recession and open interdental spaces. This article describes a technique of preventing the breakage of cast, by adapting wax on non-critical surfaces intra-orally and thus, reinforcing the critical surfaces. This technique is simple and requires minimal chair side time.
