Wrought wire clasps

  1. heat can change the crystalline structure of the metal

  2. the wrought wire is applied by:

    1. soldering it to the minor connector

    2. soldering it to the meshwork

    3. incorporated in the wax pattern

    4. imbedded into the acrylic resin (the most flexible)

  3. a 20 gauge wire in 2x more flexible than an 18 gauge wire

  4. a 20 gauge cast clasp into an .010 undercut is an alternative to wrought wire
