    Acid syringe 'could spell an end to dentist's drill'

    Acid syringe 'could spell an end to dentist's drill' | Mail Online

    It's the main reason so many of us feel such trepidation when faced with a trip to the dentist.

    But the dreaded drill could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a new technique in which teeth are treated with acid gel squirted from a syringe.
    Although acid in food and drink is one of the biggest causes of decay, scientists say its corrosive properties become an advantage when it comes to removing rotting parts of teeth.
    And while a drill can destroy healthy parts of the tooth, the makers of the pencil-sized 'Icon' syringe say their treatment is far more efficient at removing only the diseased area - and less traumatic.


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"

    For some reason, I am not comforted by this.

    Let's pour some acid on that?

    But I will so miss that high-pitched squeal of the drill...NOT!

    Interesting. I wonder if this actually will catch on.

    I can't believe they can't invent a noiseless drill. We can fly to the moon but can't make something that doesn't sound like it came from a bad horror movie?
