  • Patent number: 11103732
    Abstract: A method of improving the condition of teeth in a human mouth by continuing events of applying a composition containing calcium and a source of OH? ions, optionally in combination with amino acid/protein containing casein, so that the composition mixes with saliva and forms a slurry, followed by swishing the result around in the human mouth; the method also including, between at least two continuing events, applying a more solid composition that contains calcium and OH? and optionally casein, to problem areas of the teeth, such as where they are worn or chipped, and maintaining the contact by not intentionally removing it.

    Inventors: James D. Welch, Janet M. Wehrli
  • Publication number: 20210020637
    Abstract: A Compact FINFET System including a material which forms rectifying junctions with both N or P-type Field Induced Semiconductor, including at least two FINS electrically connected thereto and projecting substantially away therefrom parallel to one another. There further being substantially non-rectifying junctions to the material which forms a rectifying junction with both N or P-type Field Induced Semiconductor, and distal ends of the at least two FINS.

  • Patent number: 10342646
    Abstract: A method of smoothing teeth by, for instance, filling in cracks, chips and eroded areas by applying calcium and/or casein and/or phosphate and a source of OH? ions thereto. The method optionally provides that very thin layer(s) of dental cement be interlaced with other applied materials, and that the results be maintained in contact with the teeth involved by application of a composition of matter that adheres to said teeth and holds the results in place, while allowing at least some permeation of saliva therethrough. The method can optionally involve application of a backing strip or tray or the like to secure the other materials in place, but this is not a requirement where the composition of matter is sufficiently securing.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: July 9, 2019
    Inventors: James D. Welch, Janet M. Wehrli
  • Patent number: 9833386
    Abstract: A method of smoothing teeth is disclosed that is based on surprising evidence achieved by practicing a method involving application of calcium powder or calcium containing composition to teeth, and maintaining it in contact with the teeth by application of an edible adherent wax containing material, that serves to maintain contact between the teeth and the calcium powder or calcium containing composition for at least one hour.

  • Publication number: 20140084178
    Abstract: Applying a Double Slit System in combination with Cathode Ray Tube-type electron directing plates between which an electron travels on its way to the Slits, and to which plates are applied precise voltage potentials in use, allows controlling where, within the width of a Double Slit System Slit an electron passes, and perhaps enables predicting where on a Double Slit Screen a specific electron will impinge.
