Many novel microdevices in the space of a crown, pontic of a bridge, denture, or superstructure of the oral implant. We previously proposed the application of a microdevice for diabetes treatment by placing it in a prosthesis applied in the oral cavity. In this study, I propose its applicability to the nursing care field by developing a technique and many other ideas by adding a Global Positioning System (GPS) function.
