While the field of dentistry has continued to evolve, many old products and procedures that were once considered perfectly safe and healthy have been discarded as dangerous. Today we find many products that occupy something of a “middle-ground” in this regard (mercury-based fillings, for example).
Despite the fact that dental care still hasn’t been entirely perfected, we should be grateful for the fact that we aren’t limited to the comparatively barbaric forms of dentistry practiced in the distant past with tools as crude as sharpened rocks or the “dental key” (named as such because it resembled a large wooden key that would be fastened to the tooth for extraction by means of twisting the tooth until it shattered).
Here are some often overlooked innovations in modern dentistry that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Over the years, there’s been increasing interest in solar energy. Many speak of it as a viable alternative to fossil fuels, others claim the technology just “isn’t there yet”. However, when it comes right down to it, most people simply don’t understand the science behind solar energy, or their understanding is based on outdated models of 5 to 10 years in the past.
As time goes on, technology continues to advance. Sometimes this occurs at a slow and steady pace. Other times, there are great leaps forward.
When it comes to the field of dentistry, technology has (thankfully) come a long way. Prior to relatively recent times, this was difficult work and grim work for both the dentist and the patient, something seen as an ugly necessity at best.
Technology continues to advance at an impressive rate. The desire to improve and reach new limits has always been an admirable trait of mankind. We are constantly surrounded by technology it doesn’t even cross our mind anymore. One piece of technology that continues to change and improve is video surveillance. The wow-factor may have diminished with time but that doesn’t stop us from pushing forward. From the early years to current times, video surveillance has come leaps and bounds.
Environmentally friendly energy sources and technologies are being sought out more and more everyday-and for good reason. Green energy technologies contain a wide range of benefits that go a lot farther than just saving the planet. From better energy reliability to the creation of jobs and more, we’ll show you just how “worth it” transferring to a more “green energy” focused infrastructure can be. But first, let’s take a look at what exactly green or eco-friendly energy is and its various forms or applications. Continue reading “What Are The Advantages of Adopting Green Energy?”
Energy. We use it every day. You hear about it on the news every day. At this point where everything uses some sort of technology or power source, it is constantly on our mind. It will be a popular conversation topic that we will have as long as we continue to use some form of it every day. It seems the more energy we consume, the more and more that renewable or “green” energy is also a hot subject matter for discussion. But there is a type of energy generation that actually works off of our energy consumption, and allows our use to be more efficient.
It is important to understand what energy is and how it is used today. Primary Energy (PE) is the energy found in nature that has not been engineered by any man made processes. It is typically contained within raw fuels such as fossil fuels and other forms of energy that are received as the input into a system. This energy can either be Renewable or Non-Renewable. Continue reading “Efficient & Eco-Friendly Heating and Power”
Combined heat and power systems, which are most commonly called CHP systems, are a type of energy making technology that generates energy in a way that most current power plants do not. Combined heat and power systems are the best energy providers for those who are looking to be eco-friendly, save money, and not rely on power from plants and utility companies.
More and more businesses are beginning to rely on the digital side of marketing. What that means for many businesses is figuring out how to create the perfect interactive digital design for what their clients and customers expect from them.
Today, it is more important than ever to develop an interactive digital design that is not only convenient and accessible for your customers, but attracts their attention and keeps them involved for longer periods of time. This can be accomplished in a number of different ways, and often it’s about riding that knife edge between style and function.
