A couple of dollars and a few minutes of chairtime is a small investment to make for the huge return of being able to assist authorities in tracking a missing child or making a positive identification. Toothprints is a simple, cost-effective way of documenting our young patient's unique tooth characteristics, tooth position with the arch and maxillomandibular jaw relationship - all important identifiers.
Toothprints is a thermoplastic wafer that softens in hot water and is taken in the same manner as a bite registration for prosthetics or orthodontics. Parents keep the Toothprints record for safekeeping and easy access. Making a Toothprints bite impression takes only a few minutes. It's comfortable for the patient and will give their parents peace of mind. Hopefully, they'll never have to use it.
