Yeah, anything that’s better than current technology in the dentist’s chair is fine by me. But this technique, which uses my favorite substance nitric oxide in what’s called a “plasma needle,” has far wider applications. Sounds good:
The team found that when the nitric oxide plasma is produced using small amounts of energy and applied in short bursts, it can kill bacteria while leaving other living cells unharmed.”
Works in air–doesn’t have to be in a solution (or your blood or tissue). “Surgery without cutting.” Okay. I’m there. Thank you, science.
