Alzheimer’s disease represents a highly complex and enigmatic neurodegenerative disorder that impedes a person’s ability to function independently. The associated dementia may lead to a peculiar tendency of wandering. This unwarranted habit may cause the patient to land in uncanny circumstances. This case report amalgamates the use of conventional prosthodontics with simple denture bar-coding in such patients. Thus, it enriches the realm of vigilance in Alzheimer’s disease through forensic prosthodontics.
