Will Dentists Be Placing Music Grills in Dental Patients Next? (video)

Will Dentists Be Placing Music Grills in Dental Patients Next? (video)Will dental patients be asking dentists to upload their MP3 music to their mouth anytime soon?

It appears that one young college student has worked out the design concept.

Aisen Chacin, a student at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, recently created a digital music player for the mouth by attaching a vibrating motor to a mold of her upper teeth.

Her idea was to be able to hear music via ‘bone conduction’ through the skull so that when music is played, the vibration to the bone would be so strong that songs are clearly heard — without the need for headsets or earbuds.

She was successful with her invention, which resembles the popular teeth grills that many rappers wear. Chacin also installed controls on the underside of the piece so that music lovers can change their music or increase the volume with just their tongues.

Her music-grill device is featured in this video from YouTube —

Root Canal Party When Lil’ Wayne Visits Dentist

Root canals for rapper Lil' WayneRoot canal treatment doesn’t usually make celebrity gossip news… But Lil’ Wayne changed that recently after getting a whopping 8 root canals during a single 8-hour appointment.

He was recently found guilty of felony attempted gun possession, but the judge allowed him to take care of his dental work before reporting to jail for his sentence.

The rapper’s latest CD is #4 on the Billboard charts, but he may be best known for sporting a jewel-encrusted tooth grill.

As a dentist, you probably already suspected that dental grills (or “grillz”) are not good for one’s oral health But a 27-year-old who needs eight root canals?!?

It’s not exactly clear just what sort of dental care he received, but reports suggest that he had some existing dental implants restored, got a few new tooth implants – and, of course, had his grill “tuned up.”

“When you’re as rich as he is, you don’t brush your teeth, you just replace them every year or so,” posted one commenter.

It’s remarkable that someone for whom money is no object would opt for root canal therapy instead of just going straight for dental implant surgery… At any rate, let’s just hope he saw a sedation dentist for that grueling 8-hour session!
