Plastic sticks and plastic hollow sticks
Plastic sticks for casting reservoirs, wax-up stabilization, and metal-ceramic work.
- Plastic sticks and hollow plastic sticks are used as a casting reservoir in the sprue technique for casting.
- They stabilize the wax-up when using the lift-off technique for crowns and bridges, can be easily shaped over a flame, and burn out leaving no residue.
- Hollow sticks are used in metal-ceramic work for non-precious alloys and alloys with a reduced precious metal content, especially in larger multi-unit constructions.
