If you really, really hate taking your medication, here's a solution to get rid of the unpleasantness that goes along with swallowing pills. Why, it's as simple as ripping a couple of your teeth out and replacing them with small devices that steadily inject your cheeks with medicine. Never worry about forgetting to take your prescription again!

Can it really be that easy? Well, I guess you'll need to go get your teeth refilled with medication every so often, which sounds pretty awful. In fact, this entire thing looks pretty awful. I'll stick with my real teeth and just, you know, swallowing pills with a glass of water. But that's just me.
