    I am looking to start a small denture lab for a couple of my C&B accounts. I want to stay away from flasking and boil out tanks, so I'm thinking about using Dentsply's Eclipse system. I would also purchase Meyerson's Hot Shot for clasps. Does anyone have any experience with either system or ideas about other possibilities, thanks.

    I will echo Jeremy's recommendation of Heraeus' Pala line of acrylics.

    I'm thinking of going to a pour technique for my dentures after 20 years of flasking and packing. Any recommendations as to which pour acrylic is the best and strongest?

    Have any other lab owners out there told their dentists about the 2.3% excise tax? Do you think it's something we should tell our dentists yet? Wondering also who of you out there will "eat" the tax, and who will pass it on?

    Is there such a thing as too much tissue contouring on dentures? I have noticed a tendency lately where the winners of full denture work "contests" seem to emphasize festooning around the denture teeth. If we look at normal healthy gingival margins we do not see large and bulbous tissue at the gingival...
