Abstract

Well-trimmed bases on study models are fabricated to accurately represent maxillo-mandibular relations of the patient. Different commercially made base formers are available, but they have their shortcomings due to wide variation in arch size and different model trimming guidelines in different countries. The article describes a reliable and cost-effective method of fabrication of base former so that valuable time and material can be saved during trimming of the study models bases. Keywords: Study models, model trimming, orthodontic base former.
