Dental wedge with handle

A dental wedge has a handle portion attached to the dental wedge portion for use in separating teeth. The handle portion facilitates positioning and insertion of the dental wedge portion between teeth. The handle portion may be frangibly attached to the dental wedge portion. In another embodiment, the handle portion may have a bendable portion to facilitate positioning of the dental wedge portion. The dental wedge portion may be of a variety of different shapes. The dental wedge portion and handle portion greatly facilitates positioning of the dental wedge portion between teeth and adjacent a matrix band utilized in a dental restoration.

In many dental procedures, and in particular a restorative dental procedure, dental wedges are often needed. When decay is located between two teeth, tooth material must often be removed between the two teeth. After the removal of the dental material in preparation for restoration, a matrix band is often placed between the two teeth to form a wall so as to contain the restorative dental material.

However, many matrix bands are not adapted well to the bottom or gingival portions of the tooth being restored. In order to obtain a good fit with the tooth and adaptation of the matrix band to the gingival portion, a wedge is often forced into the area between the matrix band and an adjacent tooth. The purpose of the wedge is to force the gingival portion of the matrix band against the tooth, preventing the restorative fourniture dentaire from being forced beyond the cavity preparation, which could produce a permanent irritation and possible periodontal abscess. The wedge may also be used to help force the teeth apart, allowing for the thickness of the matrix band. After placement of the restorative material, the matrix band and wedge are removed allowing the slight separation of the teeth to come together. Typically, wedges are relatively small pieces of material made of wood or plastic. They are often made in many different shapes. They are usually difficult to handle and must be picked up with forceps or other small tweezer-like appliance and forced between an adjacent tooth and the matrix band. These small wedges are difficult to hold and manipulate using conventional instruments found in the dental office.

The use of a much larger dental supplies often obfuscates the view, and makes placement of the dental wedge difficult. Therefore, there is a need for a dental wedge that is more easily placed and positioned between teeth for use in dentistry.

Thread ID vs Pthread Handle(pthread_t)

在很多线程实现的案例中,pthread_t作为抽象类型,被指定为长度为4的整行作为线程ID. 在一些iSeries服务器的线程实现上,线程ID是一个64位的整型数值和pthread_t是一个抽象 的结构体包含数值和一些其他的参数.抽象化允许进程容纳上千个线程. 如果不允许移植,不允许进程访问pthread_t的内部数据和尺寸,例如对比线程ID,对于可移植的对比, 使用pthread_equal函数.文档通常描述pthread_t作为线程句柄,避免因为使用一个整型表示线程ID 而混淆概念, Thr

在delphi中,有时候我们希望对象可以接收windows消息,怎么办呢?因为要接收windows消息起码要有windows Handle,难道要建立的一个可见窗口?那样似乎太差强人意了.delphi提供了一个函数Classes.AllocateHWnd.分析AllocateHWND发现delphi CreateWindowEx一个尺寸为0的窗口,窗口是生成了,Handle也有了,但窗口的消息要处理吧,否则怎么说让对象接收Windows消息呢,但我们都知道类函数和Windows消息处理函数是不一

Get a handle on PHP Handlers

PHP Handlers? mod_php? FPM? How do we make sense of the inner workings of PHP outside of our lines of code? We know we can run PHP on the server to build web applications swiftly, but how can we optimize our environment and configurations to reach ma


android的UI是不可以在子线程中更新,因为子线程涉及到UI更新,,Android主线程是线程不安全的,也就是说更新UI只能在主线程中更新,但是在主线程中更新如果更新超过5秒钟,android系统就会收到android系统的一个错误提示"强制关闭",这个时候Handle就出来了,由于Handler运行在主线程中(UI线程中),  它与子线程可以通过Message对象来传递数据, 这个时候,Handler就承担着接受子线程传过来的(子线程用sedMessage()方法传弟)Messa

How to handle exception in managed code and unmanaged code

As we known, try...catch mechanism is a quite common feature for the high level languages like java or C#. Although C++ proclaimed  that it supports this mechanism, the memory management limitation of C++ makes this try...catch function is weak. C++


虽然handle和handler只有一个字符之差,但在程序员的世界里,含义却大相径庭. 1. 先说说handle 北京话说"一边儿玩儿去,玩勺子把儿去","勺子把儿"说的就是handle.二将handle翻译成"句柄"绝对是一个相当文雅相当阳春白雪的翻译,因为太文绉绉啦,很多文化底蕴不够的码农就看不大懂了或者望而生畏.为了弄明白为什么这么翻译,我费了点周折. 句柄者,弯杆杆儿,弯把手儿也.注意: "句"为"勾&quo
