Can You Pick Up Radio Signals Through Your Fillings?

Posted on: March 3rd, 2021 | Categories: Uncategorized

There have been reports that go back to nearly a century of people claiming to pick up radio signals through their teeth. It’s easy to dismiss these cases and say the people in question might not be sane, but there are too many instances to ignore. One notable case of a seemingly sane person picking up radio signals through their fillings is actress Lucile Ball (from the famous 1950s TV show “I Love Lucy”).

But if these people aren’t crazy, what exactly is the mechanism behind the way this works? One possible answer is that the metal fillings these people had acted like antennas and detectors, and under the right conditions, they picked up particularly strong radio waves. The radio waves would then make the fillings vibrate just enough so that the vibrations would pass through the skull, basically creating sound in the head. The phenomenon of household items picking up radio waves has already been well documented with a prominent example of soldiers in WW2 creating radios out of razor blades and pencil lead.

Luckily, with more and more people getting composite fillings instead of metal (amalgam) ones, the number of instances of people hearing the radio through their teeth will decline significantly. If you’re one of the rare people who are picking up radio signals through your teeth, or have any other dental issues, don’t hesitate to contact us.
