Music in your mouth
 
A leading American toys company hasbro inc. is shortly launching "Tooth Tunes", a brush that transmits music through the jawbone to the ear when its bristles touch teeth. The battery operated toothbrush contains a tiny microchip that stores the song. When the user presses a button and starts brushing, the sound vibrations pass through the tooth, to the jawbone and directly onto the inner ear. The song plays for about two minutes. According to Habsro executives the music quality is similar to the sound from personal headphones.
 
Research Findings

 

 
Synthetic enamel may replace some drilling
The conventional treatment of dental caries is not ideal for tiny early lesions because a disproportionate amount of helthy tooth must be removed to make the alloy or resinstick.
To address this problem, Japanese scientists have developed new synthetic tooth enamel which can seal small cavities without pain and cause less damage to patients teeth according to a report on Nature Magazine.
