Beading and Boxing is performed to obtain the artistic portion of the cast. In an elastomeric impression for edentulous ridges, creation of a land area and base is crucial for a master cast. The techniques mentioned in the literature use plaster, plaster pumice mix, wax sheets, caulking compound, denture flask and play dough. Those techniques have their disadvantages being cumbersome, clumsy, time consuming and demand for skill and dexterity. Presented below is a modification of an existing technique by Vyas A et al . The new technique does not need addition of extra wax for securing the beading wax. It is rapid, neat and easy to learn and can be adopted for zinc-oxide eugenol impressions.
