Fingerprint documentation of findings seems alot better than the bitemarkers

Using digital record keeping of the fingerprint characters observed during a comparison certainly exceeds what the bitemarkers have in their “guidelines.” Most case law allowing bitemarks into courts have the dentists declaring that bitemarks are like fingerprints.

Usually all they do is talk about gaps between teeth and tooth chips being “unique.” Adding to that, customarily they never takes “notes” and avoid doing measurement methods available since 2000.
