A THERMAL RESISTANCE STUDY OF DENTAL PROSTHESES MARKED WITH INTELLIGENT MATERIALS (NFC, AEROGEL) – IMPORTANCE IN MEDICO-LEGAL ODONTOLOGICAL IDENTIFICATION

L. S. N. Cândea, C. L. Ștefănescu, M. F. Popa


Abstract: As a result of the frequent occurence in the medico-legal practice of highly compromised cadavers, we feel compelled to turn our attention to the medico-legal odontological identification as one of the few efficient methods when dealing with such a high degree of biologic destruction (ie: combustion, air and land traffic accidents, submersion, etc). We carried out this study by means of marking complete dental prostheses using an NFC (near field comunication) tag, which contains individual identification data, and Aerogel – a fireproof material. During this study the physico-chemical resistance of these intelligent materials was tested by exposure to various temperatures.
The Aerogel was applied for the first time in the field of medicine in our study. The physico-chemical properties of this material allowed us to encase it in the prosthesis. Also, inserting the identification data in the NFC tag as a social security number was also in itself a novel approach.
Keywords: Aerogel, NFC, medico-legal odontological identification, marking of dental prostheses
