With functions similar to a cochlear implant, this dental hearing aid receives audio signals from a transmitter in the ear and in turn resonates the cochlea, through the teeth. It is designed to deliver sound across a broad frequency range of 250 to more than 12,000 Hz.

SoundBite hearing system is designed in such a way that it can easily fit around either the upper left or right back teeth, without any necessity of teeth alteration.
