Dental Caries
TOOTH DECAY, also known as DENTAL CARIES or CAVITIES, is a breakdown of teeth due to acids made by bacteria . The cavities may be a number of different colors from yellow to black. Symptoms may include pain and difficulty with eating. Complications may include inflammation of the tissue around the tooth , tooth loss , and infection or abscess formation. The cause of caries is acid from bacteria dissolving the hard tissues of the teeth (enamel , dentin and cementum ). The acid is produced from food debris or sugar on the tooth surface. Simple sugars in food are these bacteria's primary energy source and thus a diet high in simple sugar is a risk factor. If mineral breakdown is greater than build up from sources such as saliva , caries results. Risk factors include conditions that result in less saliva such as: diabetes mellitus , Sjogren\'s syndrome and some medications

Audio-Animatronics
AUDIO-ANIMATRONICS (ANIMATRONICS, AA) is the registered trademark for a form of robotics animation created by Walt Disney Imagineering for shows and attractions at Disney theme parks , and subsequently expanded on and used by other companies. The robots move and make noise (generally a recorded speech or song), but are usually fixed to whatever supports them. They can sit and stand but usually cannot walk. An Audio-Animatron is different from an android-type robot in that it uses prerecorded movements and sounds, rather than responding to external stimuli. In 2009, Disney created an interactive version of the technology called AUTONOMATRONICS. " Animatronics " has become a generic name for similar robots created by firms other than Disney
