Forensic is any term related to court of jurisdiction. Forensic medicine relates the application of knowledge
of principles with practitioners of medical and para medical sciences for the purpose of administration of
law. It includes various disciplines such as forensic toxicology, forensic engineering, forensic anthropology
and forensic odontology. Forensic dentistry includes various odontological parameters such as DNA
fingerprinting, bite mark identification, rugoscopy and cheiloscopy but these markers are of little use in
completely edentulous patients. Dental records of edentulous patients are often sparse due to in frequent
follow up of the patients and lack of record keeping by the dental practitioners. Therefore, the provision of
some form of permanent denture labeling or marking can serve as a solution to these problems.

Keywords: Forensic identification, Barcode, Micro SD card, Ante mortem records.
