Abstract: We examine the question of when the $*$-homomorphism $\lambda: A*_D B\to \widetilde{A}*_ {\widetilde{D}}\widetilde{B}$ of full amalgamated free product C$^*$-algebras, arising from compatible inclusions of C$^*$-algebras $A\subseteq\widetilde{A}$, $B\subseteq{\widetilde B}$ and $D\subseteq\widetilde{D}$, is an embedding. Results giving sufficient conditions for $\lambda$ to be injective, as well as classes of examples where $\lambda$ fails to be injective, are obtained. As an application, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the full amalgamated free product of finite-dimensional C$^*$-algebras to be residually finite dimensional.
