Aim of the study The aim of this study is to identify a crucial stage of treatment or functional fingerprint, quantify the factors underlying the choice of method of fingerprinting, according to the particularity of the prosthetic field, to ensure an optimal management of the removable prosthetic therapy. Material and methods Within the partially stretched edentulous  several methods of functional fingerprinting were described, different from total edentulous, usually using certain criteria: edentulous class I, II, III, IV, Kennedy, V, VI, Kennedy Applegate, supporting prosthetic field muco-bone with high or low resilience; edentulous ridge with sharp or stationary resorption;  type of prosthesis,  type of occlusion – no contacts of dental decay, the presence of unstable dental decay ,  presence of a stabile dental impression .Results Particularities of the prosthetic field clinic-biological related to indices that characterize the odonto periodontal status and the muco-bone, are those that dictate the type of material chosen, the footprint viscosity imprint material or chosen technique. Conclusions : Functional fingerprinting is a very important clinical stage with a profound impact in producing the final prosthetic
