Cedar Falls Dentist Improves Sleep, Reduces Headaches With TMD Treatment

CEDAR FALLS, IA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Dr. Thomas J. Strub, a Cedar Falls dentist, says that while some patients will specifically complain about jaw or jaw joint (Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ) pain, many of his patients do not realize they are suffering from Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). Patients will arrive at his practice with complaints of headaches, sore muscles, and excessive tiredness in the mornings without knowing why. Dr. Strub checks his patients for possible symptoms of TMD during his routine dental evaluations to determine whether further tests should be administered.

When examining a patient for TMD, Dr. Strub conducts a comprehensive muscle and temporomandibular joint evaluation. The evaluation includes checking the range of motion of the jaw, palpating the facial muscles to test for soreness, and observing the function and fit of the teeth for instability or wear. He also checks the jaw joints for clicking or popping (crepitus) along with the teeth to determine if the problem is an internal joint issue with the cartilage between the jawbone and the skull out of place or damaged, or if the problem is a muscle issue related to a patient's clenching and grinding habits. In both cases, a patient can find relief by wearing a small flat plastic appliance that covers the lower teeth. Dr. Strub says patients can experience significant improvement by faithfully and routinely wearing the device at night. This dental appliance relaxes the facial muscles and allows teeth to function in an ideal way that allows the jaw joint itself to heal. In addition to reducing the stress on the jaw joint with a dental appliance, Dr. Strub occasionally recommends physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, or muscle relaxers for severe cases.

After a successful TMD treatment, many patients will experience better sleep and often notice a reduction in headaches. Their overall quality of life improves as they have an increased range of motion and function in the jaw and teeth that allow them to more comfortably eat, chew, and speak. Dr. Strub says many patients of his Cedar Falls dentistry practice report that TMD treatments have changed their lives -- that his patients never realized that they did not need to live with headaches, muscle pains, uncomfortable jaw pain, and tense or sore facial muscles. He says after treatment many of his patients feel like a younger version of themselves.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
