Well it's really not like that. If it was, fingerprinting in law enforcement would be useless. Finger prints come back and stay the same after being damaged. I could see that being a short term problem though, if the scanner only has one finger's print for reference. Hopefully they use a primary with at least one backup.

Just be on the safe side though. You don't want to have any inconveniences in case you temporarily damage all of your fingers. Get a retina scanner. If that fails you, well then I'd say you've got bigger things to worry about.
