ABSTRACT:A well-fitting denture is important for the patient satisfaction and it can be achieved by adequate extension and reproducibility of peripheral tissues. A single step border moulding provides shaping of impression material along the borders of an impression tray by manipulating the soft tissues to duplicate the contour and size of the vestibules without propagation of errors. Over the years various materials are introduced for border moulding. In this case-report a new thermoplastic material (PCL) is used as single step border moulding as PCL is biocompatible, reusable and cost-effective material.
