Excuse me, is Your Tooth Ringing?

The ‘tooth phone’ consists of a tiny vibrator and a radio wave receiver implanted into a tooth during routine dental surgery. Sound, which comes into the tooth as a digital radio signal, is transferred to the inner ear by bone resonance, meaning information can be received anywhere and at any time – and nobody else can listen in. However, the ‘telephone tooth’ does not allow people to talk back to callers or make outgoing calls.
