Fear of the dentist can be a very serious issue for many children and adolescents. According to academic researches into Dental Fear and Anxiety, some young people hate dentist visits so much that they often refuse to co-operate, or worse - they don’t even go to the dentist. Scientists at Princeton and Tufts have been working a thin tooth sensor that may limit the amount of times we will need to get our teeth checked. The sensor will alert you when it detects any bacteria that could cause cavities, plaque buildup, or any other infections. The scientists say that the new sensor can recognize human oral activities, such as chewing, drinking, speaking and coughing. It also can help to better understand people’s habits and identify potential health problems, such as if a person is smoking or drinking too much. The sensor is so small that it can either fit inside an artificial tooth or straddle a real one.
