This case report describes a simple method for identifying the citizenship of a denture wearer by marking the telephone country code number inside the denture base. A wax pattern for the denture framework was prepared on the refractory cast. A piece of embossing tape, containing the country code (81, Japan), Japanese prefectural code, and abbreviation of the dental clinic where the denture was fabricated, was placed on the metal framework. A titanium-aluminum-niobium (Ti-6Al-7Nb) alloy was cast in the mold, and the denture was then fabricated by the conventional method. The casting satisfactorily reproduced the embossed letters, and the plate was identifiable through the gingiva-colored acrylic denture base resin. Since an embossed metal plate integrated with the skeleton is embedded in the denture base resin material, the current denture marking technique serves as a simple procedure for insertion of an undegradable denture identification mark which makes it possible to identify the nationality of the denture wearer.
