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.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
