I need your help with hacking my teeth.

Which cool biohacking startup is working on dental implants?

I need to get two of my gnashers replaced (long story). I don't want gold, or titanium, or silver. I want BLE, NFC, LED, or *something* different!

The unreasonable psychological effectiveness of the LISA
