Transcript of Tool Technology

Beginning *Tool-Technology* *In the Beginning* The first use of simple tools dates back to about 2,400,000 BC.. And they were just that simple. As you go through our prezi we will discuss the history, evolution, and technology of the tools we use today. Medical tools, Dental tools, Cleaning tools, Building tools, and cooking tools are what we will be discussing Medical Tools Building Tools Dental Tools Cleaning Tools Cooking Tools Thanks To... *AP images *Wikipedia(Wiki) *Ehow *Google *Ask.com -Medieval Instruments Definitions Some of the tools used were................... -Classic trenapation tools -Medieval European docters used blood letting and catching devices -Leeches to relieve excess blood & maggots to eat away dead and rotting flesh around wounds. -Stout saws to perform amputations -Needles and thread to sew up wounds As you can see in medieval times we used many different tools/ideas but some of them were simaler like leeches to take away excess blood. As you will be able to see below there are VERY many tools used in the Dentistry field many of them we have not shown because of time and space issues. Dental forceps
-Cow horns
-Upper universals
-Upper universal fine
-Lower universals Removable prosthodontics:
-Fox plane
-Willis gauge
-Bunsen burner Endodontic instruments:
-Hedstrom file
-Gates glidden
-Finger spreader Endodontic-the branch of dentistry dealing with the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp, usually by removal of the nerve and other tissue of the pulp cavity and its replacement with suitable filling material; pulp canal therapy; root canal therapy. Prosthodonticsd-the branch of dentistry that deals with the restoration and maintenance of oral function by the replacement of missing teeth and other oral structures by artificial devices. Trepanation-A medical intervention in which a hole is drilled or scraped into the human skull, exposing the dura mater in order to treat health problems related to intracranial diseases. Forceps-A forceps used in grasping and extracting teeth. Also called extracting forceps. Burnishers-a tool, usually with a smooth, slightly convex head, used for polishing (as in dentistry). *Dictonary.com Odviously if you do research on The History of Dental tools you will find that in the past many (almost all) of these tools didnt exist and that if you go wayyyyy back NONE of these tools existed and we probably had smelly, rotten teeth. But... back to the point at hand this particular type of technology has experienced its fare share of strugles during the past 150 years. Also, during that time period advancements were made as well such as... the use of safe and local anesthtic, radiographs, high speed instrumentation, new dental materials and dental implants. *J.A.D.A: The Journal of the American Dental Association Colonial Building Tools -Augers, Gimlets, & Braces.
Augers, gimlets, and braces made holes of all sizes. Burn augers burned holes, nose augers drilled holes, a wood punch started holes and a ream awl enlarged holes, according to Eric Sloan, author of "A Museum of Early American Tools."
Gimlets are small augers, such as the quill gimlet or twisted gimlet, with a T handle for starting holes, according to Sloane.
Braces, also called bitstocks, held permanent metal drill bits for drilling holes and were made to turn in a continuous motion
*Ehow.com -Then there wer Chisles & gouges. These were used for shaping wood and making holes were other tools could not. -Hammers and Saws were specialized as well. Claw hammers were used for general nailing. There were many, many other hammers during these times such as the upholster, and Lathing hammers. They also had 5 different types of saws, The Hand saw, Compass saw, Framed saw, Cross cut saw, Back saws and Fellow saws. Planes- Planes smoothed wood and came in all sizes -Drawknives and Spokeshaves were made and designed with a medal blade drawn towards you and scraped away wood. Some of the same tools are used today still like the hammers and saws, or the braces but other than that this form of technology hasn't changed as much as far as our research has showed. The first ever cleaning tool was just plain water. Then as time went on it evolved. Slowly the evolution of cleaning tools evolved and finally in the 1900's our first major break through with soaps and detergents. then cleaning technology took a turn for the best as more and more things came about like the automatic dishwasher, and liquid soaps and more like enezme products and cold water detergents etc. And so from somthing as simple as water to the point were we have began to bring electronics in cleaning technology has developed. By: Hannah Cline & Mary Miller. *Cleanitsupply.com There are many different types of modern day cooking tools. There are the pots, pans and griddles used for frying, boiling and sauteing food then theres the random ones like the spatula, wisk, and so on and so forth to the point that i cant even name them all. But when we think about ancient cooking you have to notice that they ony had maybe a few methods for tools of that sort. Woven, wooden, or stone bowls; Fire for boiling things; The eat with you hand not silverware method and then maybe for the more fortunate familys occasional silverware and couldrens. If you think about is that way you notice that options were limited and it took quite some time to get to the point we are at now in cooking technology. For information, Pictures and help. is this essential Yes and No. It is because you can become very sick if you live in a dirty inviroment, and no because it think that the extent that we take our clenliness to is kind of extensive and that we could probably live without most of the materials we are using now. Is it essential ? Yes. Because I think that if we didn't have building technology we wouldn't have homes or buildings at all. But mostly homes. Without homes we wouldnt have protetion from certain types of severe weather like tornados or in other areas around the world, stuff like sandstorms, or intense rain. Plus if we were exposed to more things like that i assume that earths population would go down. Tool Technologys impact on Society. Tools have a very great impact on society today. As many of you know we have tools for almost EVERYTHING. Reading ex: the kindle or nook, Building, Destroying what we built, making it possible to live in the places we build. So many things and i personally think some halp us live so they are actually important but i think some just make us lazy and dont motivate us to do things that keep us healthy. But what i am talking about is stuff like computers and stuff like that , that is electronic. Is it essential? Yes. I think that cooking tools and their technology are essential because in a way it helps provide food or at least help us prepare it so that it is edible. Is it essential ? Yes. With out medical tools we would be lost in this world. Many more people a year would die because of disease's we couldn't cure without them. Is it essential Probably not as essential as other stuff because we lived without dental tools for billions of years so i dont see why we couldn't live like that now we just choose to make it important to have clean teeth.
