A New Fast and Simple Border Molding Process for Complete Dentures Using a Compound Stick Gun

The goal of impression taking is maximum possible extension over all tissue capable of supporting a denture while avoiding impinging on movable tissue during normal functional movement.1 A commonly used method in complete denture impression taking is to fabricate a custom tray and apply impression compound in sections around the borders of the tray. Impression compound is a thermoplastic material, and sticks are commonly used for border molding.2 Modeling compound has a very low thermal conductivity and is acceptably soft between approximately 49ºC (120ºF) and 60ºC (140ºF).
