Audiodontics is developing the Tooth Phone™ Auditory Device - a wireless, non-surgical dental bone conduction aid. Besides being a cosmetically superior hearing aid, the Tooth Phone™ Auditory Device also will have better fidelity and output than surgically implanted bone conduction devices, The Tooth Phone™ Auditory Device shall provide improved hearing ability to individuals with:
- Single-sided deafness
- Conductive and mixed conductive hearing loss
- Certain kinds of nerve hearing loss
Extensive clinical testing of precursor systems have been undertaken and proven by Audiodontics. But because the present system is still under development, the Tooth Phone™ Auditory Device is not yet commercially available. Watch for new announcements and the upcoming Tooth Phone™ product launch in the next few months.
Audiodontics is a medical device company located in Bethesda, Maryland (suburb of Washington DC). Its core technology, an actuator which provides voice communication via the dental bone conduction pathway, was initially developed for divers and others in high noise environments under the Department of Defense Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program.
The Management Team unites individuals with unique engineering and clinical backgrounds. Dr. Mersky, a dentist, is the world's leading expert on sound transmission from the teeth and the biomechanics of dental bone conducted sound. Other engineers were the first to demonstrate a wireless tooth microphone system capable of transmitting highly intelligible speech from inside the mouth to a radio receiver at a remote location.
