Annotation:







       Back just before the turn of the century, I worked with a manufacturer of early digital dental cameras who tried this idea as a means to allow dentists to probe inside a nerve passage or cavity they were drilling out.   

       One of the beta testers broke one off inside a patients tooth and had to drill it out. That was the end of that product line.   

       Oh, and link.
