Medications Via Your Teeth

Researchers in the European Union have discovered one way to be sure people take their medications and take the correct dosage.  By placing a dental posthesis into the patient’s mouth, doctors can be sure of the dosage and, because it monitors blood levels, be sure the medication is being dispensed as needed.

At this point, the prosthesis would need to be refilled every three weeks.  At this time, the prosthesis itself would be checked and services.

Clinical testing will take place in the next year.  The testing will focus on drug addicts undergoing withdrawal therapy.
