The Rim Former is an instrument for melting the wax walls, for example, for a bite registration.

The parallelism of the maxillary and mandibular wax bite is one of the most important prerequisites for correct bite registration. Uniform melting of the maxillary and mandibular bites is necessary, in particular for the parallelism of the wax rims to the Camper’s plane. The Rim Former was developed for precisely this purpose.


  • Allows parallel melting of maxillary and mandibular rims
  • Special metal alloy for good heat transfer to the wax
  • Angled edge of metal plate for tuber tapers for melting the wax at a given height
  • Special geometry at the rear end for the discharge of melted wax
  • Well-insulated handle


The offset edge of the metal plate is placed against the tuber tapers. The Rim Former is pressed forwards against the wax wall. The entire wax wall is melted down parallel to the desired height.
