Dental Cleanings Using Ultrasonic Scaling

Dental cleaning is a process of using a variety of tools to clean your gums and outer layer of your teeth. In this process, the dentist spends a lot of time by scraping away your teeth. This is called as scaling and root planing.

In the past dental scaling was performed by a metal instrument, called scalar. In the cleaning process, the dentist removes what your tooth brush might have missed under your gums. However, today, there is another way to do this scaling part in dental cleaning. That is ultrasonic scaling method. By this ultrasonic scaling method, removing of tartar more easily and in less time that too with no metal scraping.

How ultrasonic scalars are helpful for dental cleaning
Ultrasonic scalars plays a vital role in dental cleaning. The cavitron ultrasonic equipment distributes all the ultrasonic vibrations to blast the dental tartar of teeth.
The ultra sonic scalar starts vibrating the sounds waves will generate. It helps to stubborn calculus. Water flow from the tips keeps away from overheating the scalar. You can notice that your teeth feel cleaning, but not the vibrations or sound waves. By this, your dentist can reduce his time for cleaning dental plaque bacteria. Which causes most dental problems.

  • By using ultrasonic scalar equipment for dental cleaning, you can decrease the time to taken for scaling by removing more dental tartar at once.
  • We can get to know about any gum disease at its earlier stages.
  • This method is not painful, so you need not take any local anesthesia. If you feel your teeth are sensitive, you can get many options by your dentist.
  • Due to its powerfulness, it can reduce the appearance of the tooth stains.
How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
The American dental association recommends that every one need to visit dentist at least once a year for the cleaning and regular check ups. If anyone suffers from gum disease, they need to visit their dentist frequently, because to prevent the recurrence of the gum diseases and various infections. For diabetic patients it is more important to have their teeth cleaned because that is link to dental problems. Even for smoking people too, it is very important to clean up their teeth very frequently. Smoking is permanently stain their teeth. According to the dentist suggestion find out exactly how often you should get your teeth cleaned.

Landscaping with Garden Rocks to Add Beauty to the Garden

Rock gives more beautiful look to the landscape. Landscape rocks are available in many colors, sizes, materials, etc. Depending of the style of your garden you can choose the rocks for your landscape. You can use the rocks in various places of landscape like pond, walkways, etc. One of the good things about the rock is they are durable and doesn't require any future care or maintenance. Some of the popular rocks that you can use for the landscape design are:

Natural stones
Most of the gardens need natural look in the landscape along with the plants. These natural stones come in few natural colors like limestone, sandstone etc. and shapes. To create a unique look to the garden you can use the mixes of various natural stones for different sizes and shapes. But, this is a most expensive choice if you use in more quantity for your landscape.

Boulders are good choice to use in your garden pathways, for garden walls and ancient pieces as they are large. They come in variety of shapes for different levels of landscaping. They are heavy to install and you need to take the help of the professional.

River stones
These stones can be used for decorations in your landscape especially for the water features like fountain, waterfalls etc. It is also used for creating the dry stream beds in the garden. Along with this rivers rocks lava rocks also adds beauty to the green foliage. It can be used as an alternative to the garden mulch. These are available from small to large.

For the driveway and pathway you can use this gravel as the common choice. It is versatile choice which offers attractive option for designing the landscape of the garden. This can be easily replaced in future if you need. It comes in different types and grades ranging from small to big.

Brick is a cost effective option for the landscape design. But, in general it is not that attractive choice for your garden but, if it smoothed to give smooth look then it is a good choice and it also need maintenance which involves regular cleaning and sealing. Laying a patio or pathways with this is difficult.

These are the few stones that you can use in various places of landscapes to enhance the look of the garden. Instead of using only a specific rock mixed rock landscape is also an another good option for your landscape. So, choose the rock of your choice for your landscape and make it beautiful.

Common Causes of Spark Plug Failure

The spark plug is one of the most important components in the fuel injection system of an automobile.

Electric fuel pump
It ignites the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. The spark plug is mostly used in gasoline engines. A bad or worn out spark plug can affect the performance of the engine, fuel economy and even can lead to starting problems. The failure of spark plug is one of the main reasons for breakdown of vehicles.

In this article, let us discuss some of the common causes of spark plug failure. The common causes of spark plug failure are fouling, wear out/cracks and overheat.

Let us consider the role fouling. Fouling includes carbon fouling and oil fouling.

Carbon fouling
  • Carbon fouling is a common cause of spark plug failure. Carbon fouling means accumulation of carbon deposits on the spark plug.
  • The accumulation of carbon deposits happens due to choking, which leads the air filter being blocked.
  • If the car is idle for a long time, the temperature drops. Due to temperature drop the combustion deposits on the spark plug are not burnt and develops into a thick black carbon near the spark plug causing carbon fouling. You can find the deposits of carbon the spark plug visually.
Oil fouling
  • Oil fouling occurs due to the presence of oil in the combustion chamber.
  • The oil enters the combustion chamber through the piston or walls of the cylinders when they are worn out. The oil enters the combustion chamber due to disproportionate oil to fuel ratio.
Engine overheating
  • If the operating temperature of the engine is more than 1600° F, it overheats the cylinder and damages the firing-end and electrodes of the spark plug.
  • Overheating of the spark plug can also cause abnormal combustion.
Mechanical damage
The threads of the spark plug can get damaged due to improper handling while installing. Damaged spark plugs result in voltage leak in the cylinders.

Worn out spark plugs

  • The firing end of the spark plug wears out.
  • The gap between the electrodes will become wider when the spark plug is used for a long time.
  • Due to this, normal voltage may not be sufficient to ignite the combustion chamber.
  • A worn out spark plug leads to misfiring and causes starting problem.
Poor acceleration
  • Another common sign of failure of spark plug is poor acceleration.
  • Due to this, acceleration pushes down and does not immediately boost the speed of the vehicle.
  • Even it appears like the engine is trying hard to pull the vehicle due to the poor acceleration.
Regular maintenance can improve the performance of the spark plug and it is likely to last longer.

PCB: Materials Used in Manufacturing

Need of a perfect material
The properties of the manufactured PCB depends to a great extent (electrically, mechanically and chemically) on the application and the environment it has to be used. The materials employed in the manufacturing process play a key role in determining the properties of the resultant PCB. Therefore, selection of suitable materials for manufacturing of PCB is quite important as they are responsible both to the expected performance of the PCB as well as the equipment made.

A common PCB needs generally a conductive ink and a substrate on which the ink has to be deposited to design conductive paths on the substrate on which components can be placed as per will and need suitable for the application. Broadly, they can be laminates, copper clad laminates, or resin impregnated materials.

Conductive ink
The popular approaches use additive method of depositing a conductive ink onto the substrate to minimize material wastage and achieve greater resolution.

These inks are classified as fired high solid systems or PTF polymer thick film systems. These inks allow print circuit designs on a variety of substrate materials ranging from teflon to paper. The conductive flakes generally consist of conductive materials like powdered silver or carbon.

Silver inks have seen multiple uses in technologies like (Radio-frequency identification) RFID, keyboards and windshield defrosters.

Laminate materials
Laminate materials are particularly the substrates used for depositing the ink and binding different layers of the PCB in case of multilayer PCB.
The materials prominently used as laminates are:

1. BT-Epoxy: It is a group of thermosetting resins. It is obtained by mixing the epoxy and BT (Bismaleimide-Triazine) resins. This material has high glass transition temperature up to 300 degrees C and and  has a very low dielectric constant.

2. Composite Epoxy Material (CEM) : This is a class of materials where woven glass fabric structures with non woven glass core is combined with epoxy resin. There are different types of CEMs :

1. CEM1 : Single layered woven glass fabric with cellulose paper based laminate. It is of low cost and is flame retardant.
2. CEM2 : Woven glass fabric and cellulose paper core.
3. CEM3 : It's similar to FR4; flame retardant and white colored.
4. CEM4 : It's similar to CEM3 but not flame retardant.
5. CEM5 : Polyester woven glass core.

3.  Cyanate esters : They are bisphenol and novolac based chemical substances. They have the property of getting treated many times in a varied range of high to low temperatures. They have a high glass transition temperature up to 400 degrees C  and posses a very low dielectric constant. They are smoke, fire and toxicity resistant and their toughness gives them an edge over epoxies in space applications.

4. Flame Resistant-2(FR-2) : Basically, it is a synthetic resin bonded paper made by impregnating paper with a plasticized phenol formaldehyde resin. It's used in low end consumer electronics.

5. Flame Resistant-4 (FR-4) : These are glass reinforced epoxy laminate sheets made by combining glass fibers with a fire resistant epoxy resin. It's a widely used laminate material. When a thin layer of copper is deposited on both sides of the laminate, it's known as copper-clad laminate.

6. Polyimide : It is made by polymerizing imide monomers. They are flexible, high heat resistant and thermally stable. Used in producing flexible PCBs.

7. PTFE (Teflon) : Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE ) is commonly known as Teflon and is a polymer of tetrafluoroethane. It is water resistant and has a high temperature bearing capacity, which makes them ideal for the use in equipments like microwaves and furnaces.

Need for advanced materials
With the structures getting smaller with the time and the utilities and circuits getting more complex, electromagnetic interference problems arise. They obstruct the development of 3D printing. This is due to the difference in fabrication material used for different components and parts of the PCB.

This problem can be overcome by looking for anisotropic materials and materials with spatially variant lattices.

Material used for the purpose of PCB fabrication still has a long way to go in order to improvise their structure to suit the diverse applications.

Challenges Faced While Learning Language

Learning any foreign language is a skill that develops over time and which cannot be done over night. One should pay complete attentions and focus when trying to learn any new language. Though it being a challenging task the outcomes and benefits associated are huge. Following are few major challenges people face while learning any new language. The ability to pick up any  new language is at it speak at present and the best way to start is to being exposed to new languages from birth.
  • The major problem many people face is the lack of focus or interest which is the thing to be developed. One should work on it and make the process of learning enjoyable and fun.
  • Motivation is the primary thing which leads to success for learning any skill and one should either get self motivated or by a trainer who plays a key role.
  • Unfamiliar accents and sounds make things complicated. Even in similar languages like English ans Spanish few common letters carry different sounds.
  • Languages usually gets more complicated when certain letters are grouped together which usually changes the sound of single letters.
  • Practice by copying native speakers and learn certain rules which make the only solution.
Difficult reading material
  • The reading materials people choose belonging to second language learners can be a problem.
  • The materials are complicated unnecessarily with sentences and words which are above students level.
  • The right reading materials have to be chosen which should contain short sentences for beginners, longer sentences for higher level learners.
Regular practice
  • To be good at things one should practice effectively. Even native speakers goes through hard time and even he couldn't read well with lack of practice.
  • Reading out loud makes sense with a native speaker and is a good way to practice where the mistakes can be corrected and model up proper fluency, pronunciation and intonation.
Intonation and fluency
  • Second language learners often face difficulty in regulation of fluency and intonation as they read loud.
  • The reader sounds lifeless and robotic while knowing how to pronounce but lacks to read them in a particular tone.
  • Second language learners concentrate more on pronouncing one word at a time and will not be able to see broadly hence failing to reproduce in putting the words together and in grouping them correctly.
The above are some of the major challenges a language learners faces. Trying to overcome with strong motivation and intention helps not only in learning a language but also for achieving things by being strong and determined.
