InventHelp Inventors Design an Inconspicuous, Safer Knife Holder (DVR-550)

PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

“Keeping knives exposed on a kitchen counter can be unsightly, dangerous and space-consuming,” said one of two inventors from Littleton, Colo., “so we decided that there needed to be a way to keep them out of sight and out of the way until needed.”

He then created a prototype of the Hide-A-Knife, a holder that provides an inconspicuous, safer way to store kitchen knives. Not only does it keep them out of the way in order to prevent injuries, but it avoids unsightliness, saves counter space and utilizes otherwise wasted space under kitchen cabinets. It also eliminates the need for butcher blocks. The holder is compact, easy to use when a knife is needed, child-safe and producible in different sizes and materials.

The original design was submitted to the Denver office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-DVR-550, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.

Eliminating Gingivitis the Ideal Way

Among the most difficult issues in life nowadays is to maintain our oral wellness healthy. Clearly, oral issues can risk our overall health apart from the evident reality that it could harm our teeth. Due to this, most dental specialists suggest that one must practice the basic dental hygiene. This signifies that we should start from the basic step up to the most extensive one. The basic dental hygiene is brushing our teeth on daily basis. Unfortunately, not all individuals perform this step. But did you know that overlooking day-to-day brushing might bring about serious different dental diseases? When you skip brushing, you might be impacted with gingivitis.

To start with, what is gingivitis?

In accordance with specialists, gingivitis is a mild form of periodontal disease or gum disease. Much of the time, gum disease comes about when an individual doesn’t practice the right dental hygiene. In short, dental plaque build-up may appear whenever you skip daily brushing. In general, dental plaques are bad elements that attack the gum that causes several oral infections. If these plaques left unattended, it might lead to dental tartar. A dental tartar is an irritant that’s extremely hard to remove even when employed with proper brushing. This is also the main cause why a person is affected with gingivitis. Gingivitis might lead to inflamed gums which attack the bloodstreams, making more serious medical conditions. Even though gingivitis is only a mild form of gum illness, never undervalue its effects. This is simply because gingivitis can cause heart diseases, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory syndromes, diabetes and the likes.

Ordinarily, gingivitis exhibits no signs at its early stages which make it very difficult to detect. However, there are also visible indicators like bleeding gums, color changing of the gums. Once you see that the color of the gums turn dark red, it might be a signal of gingivitis.

Thru deep cleaning, you can now address gingivitis. Indeed, this oral problem is manageable. Aside from cleaning the teeth, your dentist may also undertake scaling and root planning process. With this process, the dentist can eradicate the stuck dental tartar or other bacteria below the gum line. If you want to avoid this issue, always apply the proper dental hygiene. Always have your teeth brushed and flossed regularly. Lastly, consider checking out your dentist for at least twice per year to sevaluate the wellness of your gums.

How to Cope with Sensitive Teeth

There’s absolutely nothing more satisfying than savoring the food we eat or ingest the most desired drink. Nevertheless, what if there comes a case by which you can no longer taste its glorious flavor because of a stinging pain? If you experience a tooth pain anytime you chew, drink, bite something that also comes with different temperature then you may be experiencing tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity or also referred to as the dentin hypersensitivity is the twitching discomfort which comes from a hot or very cold food or drink.

Anybody could be afflicted by tooth sensitivity. Most of them lack proper hygiene which results in the destruction of enamel. Tooth enamel is the outer layer of the teeth which safeguards the dentin from irritants. These irritants came from intense temperature which attacks the tooth roots, creating a sharp discomfort. Additionally, there are different causes of tooth sensitivity. In the event you think that you are affected by this awful oral problem, then refer to the following causes below:Extreme Utilization of Mouthwash
As we all know, mouthwash guards the teeth from harmful bacteria and irritants. This anti-septic method is manufactured from powerful components which could stop teeth from deteriorating. Sadly, mouthwash can also cause poor effect towards the teeth. This is due to improper utilization of mouthwash. In accordance with research, extreme utilization of mouthwash might lead to tooth sensitivity. This is because most mouthwashes incorporate acids making the teeth sensitive. With this, it pays to seek the dentist and inquire about neutral fluoride rinses.

Excessive Use of Acidic Foods
Acidic foods mostly stemmed from tomatoes, fruit juices, goodies and citrus. Although these foods seem to be pleasant to consume, they inflict unwanted effects. Experts claimed that too much usage of acidic food and drinks might result in tooth sensitivity. This is because acids destroy and erode the enamel. As all of us know, enamel shields the teeth from dental problems. Hence, when the enamel is compromised, the teeth become vulnerable from bad irritants. To help neutralize the acids, you may drink a glass of milk or eat cheese after consuming.Toothpaste and WhitenersEveryone needs to possess pearly-white teeth. However, there are teeth whiteners or toothpaste that may trigger tooth sensitivity. The majority of the products that trigger tooth sensitivity are the ones with peroxide bleach. Thankfully, this could be averted by quitting utilizing such item. Because toothpaste and tooth whiteners include different brand names, it pays to communicate with your dentist for appropriate toothpaste and whiteners.Receding GumsOr also referred to as gingival recession is an oral problem that exposes the teeth from sensitivity. More often than not, this difficulty develops to adults and teenagers who’ve got gingival margin retraction from the teeth crown. This oral issue allows the roots of the teeth expose by a loss of gum tissue. This condition needs an instant dental help hence calling your dentist is suggested.

Heavy BrushingPlenty of people desire to have healthy teeth. As a result, some of them tend to brush their teeth harder. However, this thought is quite wrong. Heavy brushing of the teeth does not signify healthier and cleaner teeth. This is simply because it could trigger your enamel to erode, leaving your dentin vulnerably exposed. When this happens, tooth sensitivity comes next. Therefore, it pays to thoroughly and properly brush your teeth. It will avert holes in the dentin that causes your teeth to become sensitive. So take care!Regular Dental Visits
This may quite unfair to you however the more you seek healthier teeth, the much more you exposed them to sensitivity. Regular dental works are among the typical factors why you’ve got sensitive teeth. This is due to the operations applied on your teeth like teeth cleanings, root planning and tooth restorations. Nearly all of these processes induce tooth sensitivity. Fortunately, this is only pretty temporary and won’t stay longer.

Broken and Cracked TeethObviously, broken or chipped tooth came from several bad routines such as chewing ice or any hard foods. When a tooth cracks, holes are starting to come out. These holes will expose the nerves from food temperature, creating a sharp discomfort. Damaged tooth contains bad bacteria that can trigger inflammation and a lot more discomfort. Hence, averting such habit helps.BruxismTeeth grinding or also known as bruxism is the most typical cause of having sensitive teeth. Although tooth enamel is the strongest material of the body, it is still no match on teeth clenching. If you keep on doing such habit, your tooth enamel becomes weary, making your tooth nerves weak. To keep your teeth from this situation, you might use mouth guards.There are genuinely different grounds for sensitive teeth. Nonetheless, it is still smart to prevent it from coming. When it comes to preventing sensitive teeth, you will find various techniques to use. A few of the most efficient techniques are using soft-bristled toothbrush. This type of toothbrush can prevent dental abrasion which may cause irritation to gums. Also, one method to avoid sensitive teeth is through correct brushing especially on the gum line. Moreover, avoiding acidic foods is also encouraged. Even if it’s pretty hard to avoid such foods, it is practical to start practicing averting it. Of course, regular dental visits help. Even though this can activate tooth sensitivity, still it is crucial to find your dentist for regular checkups. Your dentist will provide appropriate cleanings and fluoride therapies which can help you keep sensitive teeth.Tooth sensitivity is not something that you can ignore. Apart from providing you sharp pain, it could also produce hassle to your daily living. Nonetheless, keep in mind that sensitive teeth may be avoided and fixed. Sometimes, it takes desensitizing toothpaste to relieve the issue. Of course, it is recommended to visit your dentist routinely.
