Tooth problems in India.avi SPLINTING OF TEETH Trauma to the teeth can be transmitted to the supporting structures, which get damaged. This can cause mobility of the teeth. Such mobile teeth may require splinting for a specified period of time till the supporting tissues heals and the tooth becomes stable. Splinting is a procedure where the teeth are supported in its position for a period of time. Splinting involves binding a group of teeth together so that the biting forces are shared by a large number of teeth instead of being born by the affected tooth Splinting of teeth can be done either by composite material or by fiber splinting . RATIONALE OF SPLINTING PERIODONTALLY WEAK TEETH: Predominantly, lingual splinting - of mandibular anterior teeth and palatal splinting - of maxillary anterior teeth. Splinting is a procedure which is done, if incisors are very mobile but maintainable in mouth, then six anterior teeth are joined at the incisor 1/3rd to increase support -- that is from canine to canine. BENEFITS: 1. It allows the patient to chew comfortably. 2. Mobile teeth become firm -- patient can use regular brush, inter-dental brush etc. without the fear of knocking down teeth. 3. As splinting is done in conjunction with other periodontal therapy,such as scaling / curreatage / root planning / flap surgery etc, it also is an adjunct to preservation of hard and soft tissue. 4. Enhances patient self confidence. RATIONALE OF SPLINTING IN TOOTH INJURY: Injured anterior teeth should be stabilized for ...
Scarva Pill Box Scarva Pillbox can be found at the rear entrance to Scarvagh House. This military bunker dates back to the early 1940s, when a network of defences were built throughout Northern Ireland to defend against the anticipated German invasion. The most common of these defences were called 'pillboxes'. These were low concrete forts which were sited at road junctions, c***s and other strategic points. The Scarva pillbox was part of the Lough Neagh-Carlingford Lough line of defence. The river Bann and the Newry c*** were used as the main obstacles in these areas and the pillboxes would have been used to defend crossing points. Although the threat of invasion diminished after 1941, the possibility of *** commando raids remained a constant fear. Scarva Pillbox contains two machine gun embrasures. There is a stepped machine gun platform and a square recess, which was probably used for ammunition or water coolant, on the inside of each embrasure.

Borodinskaya bitva / Battle of borodino/ bataille de la Moskowa : 3d anim FILM 2 The first area of operations was on the Bagration flèches, as had been predicted by both Barclay de Tolly and Bagration. Napoleon, in command of the French forces, made errors similar to those of his Russian adversary, deploying his forces inefficiently and failing to exploit the weaknesses in the Russian line.The initial French attack was aimed at seizing the three Russian positions collectively known as the Bagration flèches, four arrow-head shaped, open-backed earthworks which arced out to the left en échelon in front of the Kolocha stream. These positions helped support the Russian left, which had no terrain advantages. There was much to be desired in the construction of the flèches, one officer noting that the ditches were much too shallow, the embrasures open to the ground, making them easy to enter, and that they were much too wide exposing infantry inside them. The Russian center was defended by the Raevsky Redoubt, a massive open-backed earthwork mounting 19 12-pounder cannons which had a clear field of fire all the way to the banks o

Korea Pt 27: Hwaseong Fortress The architecture of the fortress combines traditional Eastern and Western styles, which makes it very distinctive from other Korean Fortress(Or castle). Four gates The fortress has four gates, "Hwaseomun" (west gate), "Janganmun" (north), "Paldalmun" (south) and Changnyongmun (east). The Janganmun and Paldalmun gates are the larger of the four main gates and resemble Seoul's Namdaemun in roof design, and stone and wood work.(Janganmun is bigger than Namdaemun. Janganmun is the most enormous gate in Korea.) Paldalmun was burned down during the Korean War and was reconstructed in 1975. Janganmun survived destruction and is from the original construction of the fortress. Both the north and south gates are topped with two-story wooden pavilions while Hwaseomun and Changyongmun, the west gate and east gate respectively, had one story pavilions. The north gate's grand design reflected King Jeongjo's desire to move the capital to Suwon. The four main gates are encircled by miniature fortresses which housed guards to protect the gates. Wall The wall is 5.74 kilometers in length and four to six meters high, originally enclosing 1.3 square kilometres of land. On flat terrain the wall was generally built higher than wall that was on mountainous terrain, an incorporation of terrain into the fortress defenses which was rare in China and Japan. The parapets are made of stone and brick, like most of the fortress, and were 1.2 meters in height. Although the southern section has not been ...

Krakowskie Forty - Cracow Fortifications (english subtitles) Krakow Fortifications In the mid-19th century Krakow became a border city situated at the junction of the frontiers of three occupant states. The strategic significance of the citys location encouraged the emperor Francis Joseph I (Francis Joseph the First) to initiate the construction of a fortification for the purpose of defending the monarchy, most of all, against Russia. However, the fortifying structure determined the urban layout of Krakow for over half a century. Since that time and until World War I the fortress was systematically modernised following the ever-changing military theories and a most remarkable development of fire arms. From the massive circle of fortifications with brick bastions to a system of scattered forts made from brick to concrete, from embrasures to gun turrets and so on and so forth. As a result, Krakow became one of the most powerful and modern European fortifications of those times. Today, the fortifications are no longer of military significance. However, they have an immense unique historical value. Nevertheless, in the 50s of the 20th century a decision was made to demolish those symbols of the invaders reign and unfortunately, in many cases, the demolition was successful. The bricks from the demolition were to be used to rebuild the war-ruined country. But the action was more symbolic than practical. Fortunately the devastation stopped and approximately 70 fortifications survived. It should be remembered that these historical ...

The Great Siege Tunnels of Gibraltar - 28th July, 2010 Views within and from Gibraltar's Great Siege Tunnels, known as the Galleries or the Great Siege Tunnels. The first of these was dug towards the end of the four years' siege which lasted from 1779-1783. General Elliot, afterwards Lord Heathfield, who commanded the garrison throughout the siege, was anxious to bring flanking fire on the Spanish batteries in the plain below the North face of the Rock. On the suggestion of Sergeant Ince of the Royal Engineers, he had a tunnel bored from a point above Willis's Battery to communicate with the Notch, a natural projection from the North face. The plan was to mount a battery there. There was no intention at first of making embrasures in this tunnel, but an opening was found necessary for ventilation; as soon as it had been made a gun was mounted in it. By the end of the siege, the British had constructed six such embrasures, and mounted four guns. The Galleries, which tourists may visit, were a later development of the same idea and were finished in 1797. They consist of a whole system of halls, embrasures, and passages, of a total length of nearly 304 m (997 ft). From them, one may see a series of unique views of the Bay of Gibraltar, the isthmus, and Spain.

Urbino/uman landscape (email@example.com) URBINO_PAESAGGIO UMANO/ANIMA is a work of videodocumentation in representative key of the city of Urbino. The work is conceived for the plan "Grand Retour" an articulated system of development of visions of Italian cities through the instrument of the videoart. Task to two old ones, their wrinkles, the idea of separation. Task to the porosity, the mattoni of Urbino like sponges. The stones absorb time, passages, enclose humid cavities, breathe, . What I propose is a travel in the matter that vibrates and with she its noises, its made fissures of spifferi and dark embrasures. On the background noise of steps that strike the pavement, is the surface of the matter that gives back to the sounds and their history to us: the inanimate shapes have voice, the stones are mirror of the shadows that they cross to them. Therefore like the history of love of two old ones suspended in the dream (the dream of she, the dream of he), prisoner of my walls.

Triodent V-Ring Sectional Matrix System The V-Ring has exceptional qualities of strength and resilience to produce perfect, tight contacts. The rings V-shaped tines accommodate the wedge and work on narrow and wide embrasures. The original V-Rings slim tines exert even pressure on both teeth for ideal separation. They grip tightly into the undercuts on both teeth, giving excellent retention. In harmony with Triodent's matrices and wedges, the V-Ring produces tight contacts and restorations with a natural, anatomical shape.
The Gremi citadel (Géorgie/Georgia) Gremi is a 16th-century architectural monument -- the royal citadel and the Church of the Archangels -- in Kakheti, Georgia. The complex is what has survived from the once flourishing town of Gremi and is located east of the present-day village of the same name in the Kvareli district, 175 kilometers east of Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. Contents Gremi was the capital of the Kingdom of Kakheti in the 16th and 17th centuries. Founded by Levan of Kakheti, it functioned as a lively trading town on the Silk Road and royal residence until being razed to the ground by the armies of Shah Abbas I of Persia in 1615. The town never regained its past prosperity and the kings of Kakheti transferred their capital to Telavi in the mid-17th century. The town appears to have occupied the area of approximately 40 hectares and to have been composed of three principal parts -- the Archangels' Church complex, the royal residence and the commercial neighborhood. Systematic archaeological studies of the area guided by A. Mamulashvili and P. Zak'araia were carried out in 1939-1949 and 1963-1967, respectively. Since 2007, the monuments of Gremi have been proposed for inclusion into the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Archangels' Church complex is located on a hill and composed of the Church of the Archangels Michael and Gabriel itself, a three-story castle, a bell tower and a wine cellar (marani). It is encircled by a wall secured by embrasures, turrets and towers. Remains of the secret tunnel ...

Books against war Books collect and preserve the wisdom people have slowly accumulated over the years. Or so it should be. By studying books, we should be able to improve our world. Or so it could be. In totalitarian regimes, free access to books and the knowledge and ideas they hold is made difficult or impossible. Barbaric. As such, books represent a kind of barrier to the worst species of mankind. A sort of (narrow) defence line between us and the ultimate chaos of war and society. In this installation-cum-performance we have expanded this imagery just a bit further. Consider. Books can only be useful in averting human inhumanity when they are taken from their bookshelves and read and studied. But who reads them? So we were looking for a more direct use of books in this field. In a 41-minute performance, some 1000 books were used to build a strong semi-circular wall, forming a bastion behind which one could hide to be safe from any attacks, free from war even. However, just in case, some embrasures were left open. Behind the bastion you'll notice the empty bookshelves.
