      I have never done a wax try in with a processed baseplate. We do a type of case rather frequently it is a cast metal upper horseshoe overdenture with locator attachments. I cold cure the locator housings onto frame then wax the denture but as usual. Then during try in the flanges break off if there is too much retention. Wax is not strong enough I ivobase process. It seems silly to me to cold cure the flange on just to have to rip my wax up apart to remove the cold cure. I want the benefits of ivobase acrylic everywhere. How should I be doing this properly.

      What we do in my lab is to make a simple VLC base plate with the attachments to make sure we have a good master model. I never set the ridge runner frame for try in. There is no point, After esthetic try in we flask as normal then add the frame after boil out. Snap the old base plate and retrieve the attachments. Block out and inject.

      There is a major connector outside the acrylic, so I would need it on there before investing.

      Ivoclar training center gave me a few suggestions I think will work out nicely.
