A wire sensing coil is sealed in the tip of an elongate, rigid, plastic probe, and is connected by a coaxial cable releasably to a housing containing a fixed frequency, crystal-controlled oscillator, the output of which is applied through a high impedance resistor and the cable to the coil. The number of turns in the coil and the cable length are carefully selected so that the coil remains tuned to the frequency of the oscillator, except when the tip of the probe approaches a metal object, at which time the voltage drop across the coil decreases. The housing also contains an audible alarm, and a sensing circuit which detects the voltage drop across the coil, and which energizes the alarm when the voltage across the coil drops below a preset or predetermined level. The housing also contains a rechargable battery for supplying power to the oscillator and alarm circuits, and a recharging circuit for recharging the battery. A manually operable switch on the housing connects the battery to the oscillator when the switch is in its ON position, and connects the recharging circuit to the battery when in its OFF position.

A solutions for optimizing the environmental conditions within the human oral cavity is disclosed which enhances the functioning of cells of the oral cavity and promotes remineralization of teeth. These solutions are effective in treating and preventing caries and periodontal disease and reducing mouth odor and are easily and safely used by the lay population. A method of making the solutions which totally prevents the formation of calcium phosphate crystals, for example hydroxyapatite, is disclosed.
Method And Compositions For Enhancing White Blood Cell Functioning On A Mucosal Or Cutaneous Surface
The present invention relates to a method for enhancing white blood cell functioning and metabolism on a mucosal surface of a mammal. The present invention also relates to a method for treating or preventing a condition in a mammal caused by the presence of a disease-causing agent on a mucosal surface or a cutaneous surface wherein the disease-causing agent can be diminished by the actions of the white blood cells. The present invention yet also relates to a method for healing a wound of a mucosal or cutaneous surface. The present invention also relates to compositions for use in such methods.
