The IntelliDrug device will work with a remote control to inform the patient and physician if the drug container needs to be refilled. The medication from the device can either enter the oral cavity and mix with saliva to be swallowed by the patient, or can be administered directly into the patient's bloodstream via the "root" of the tooth.

This is personalized medicine. Periodically you'd go to your pharmacist to replace your teeth. You turn in the old teeth to be refilled/recharged.
