The Tooth Phone Cometh

Say it ain't so. Some mad engineers have worked out how to build key telephone components into a tooth implant. Bone conduction allows the head to serve as both microphone and speaker, and a small radio tranceiver relays the signal. Here's hoping it's a short range relay to a mobile device elsewhere on your person, or you'll be on your way to microwaving your dinner while you chew it.
