Aim: To find the efficacy of radiofrequency identification (RFID) strips in reading patient treatment details and as a tool for patient identification. Materials and Methods: The initial part of the study was done in in-vitro dentures and later in in-vivo conditions in patient dentures. In-vitro testing was done by incorporating RFID strips in 10 nonclinical dentures and the ability of the RFID reader to accurately read the information was checked. In the second part of the study, 35 implant-supported overdenture patients were chosen and RFID strips were incorporated in their dentures after feeding the data. The accuracy of the RFID reader to read the patient details and treatment information was checked after processing and after a period of 6 months. Results: The in-vitro results revealed 100% accurate reading of the details by the RFID reader. In the clinical study, 35 out of 35 patient details were readable after processing. Conclusion: RFID can be an effective tool in denture identification and in revealing the patient's previous treatment history, prosthesis type, implant brand, dimensions, and material used which will be very useful in implant therapy.
