Bluetooth Dentistry?

Modern technology is on the rise. Will a dentist be able to utilize Bluetooth to fix your teeth?
As I blogged yesterday, there is a company in France which has a toothbrush and app to help children brush better by brushing for the recommended full two minutes.

Leave it to technology, Oral B and other toothbrush manufacturers are making Bluetooth enabled tooth brushes for adults. They can hook up with your Smart Phones to help you brush better and more efficiently.

As far as in our actual dental office, I don't see us being able to utilize Bluetooth technology right now. Currently we have lasers and we can also make crowns using computer generated images, However, I don't see robotics being utilized in dentistry. Robotics cannot replace the tactile sense of touch which allows me to provide gentle dentistry.

Have a blessed day and weekend.
