Cyborg Teeth

Abstract:
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.

james_bond_jaws.jpgBrilliant. The system I was thinking about would have to manufacture (presumably via an onboard nanofactory) necessary medicines. Since a tooth could be easily replaced periodically, it would just hold and dispense medicine. Spooky nanotech would not be needed.

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.
