DentalSlim is fitted to the patient’s upper and lower back teeth thereby limiting the use of their jaw. The device involves a combination of magnetic pieces with custom-manufactured locking bolts, allowing wearers to open their mouths at a maximum of 2 mm, which is less than an inch. Enjoy that all-liquid diet!
“It is a non-invasive, reversible, economical and attractive alternative to surgical procedures... The fact is, there are no adverse consequences with this device.”
The most interesting aspect of DentalSlim is that its creators legitimately believe it is something that is both practical and helpful to the world at large. A dedicated university research team deduced that the biggest hurdle to people trying to lose weight is autonomy over their mouths.
It is a tough scene for higher education right now.
