Dentoscope

Shut your mouth as the dentist drills and fills.

Gone are the days of aching jaws after a half hour of gaping. No more squinting into bright lights as a visored doctor hovers over your face, splashing liquids on and under your collar.

The dental endoscope performs all the common procedures, from scraping to root canals, quicker, without stress and via closed lips. As the patient sits comfortably as if smoking a Corona, the dentist watches the oral action on a screen nearby (or in another city) and controls the exchange and operation of the instruments with joysticks.

“Rinse and spit” (also done by dentoscope) will be heard no more. The only time you need show your teeth, will be when you smile into the mirror at the end of the appointment.

       I'd like to vote for this, being rather dentist-phobic, but I think you're pulling our legs. How would it work?

       snarfyguy: Only pulling your teeth, and it will work not unlike the fabulous, surgical endoscope.

       It's a reverse endoscope. Goes up your butt and arrives at the back of your closed mouth. Self-cleaning cillia reduce unpleasant tastes.

       Florida, have the nasty bakers been making those threats again?
