CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Dr. Steven Flicker, a Chicago dentist at Dental Implant Associates, consistently has patients visiting the office who experience tooth sensitivity. Many of these patients do not know the cause of this sensitivity -- only that the sensation is uncomfortable and they want relief. Dr. Flicker strives to educate patients about the causes of tooth sensitivity as well as available solutions.
Dr. Flicker highlights many of the common causes for tooth sensitivity:
- Overly aggressive brushing
- Tooth decay near the gum line
- Gum recession
- Gum disease
- Teeth grinding
- Age-related tooth wear
- Cracked or broken teeth
Young, healthy teeth are protected by a layer of enamel. Since there are no nerves in tooth enamel, Dr. Flicker says patients with strong enamel covering the entire tooth do not experience tooth sensitivity. However, once this layer of enamel becomes compromised, the dentin of the tooth is exposed. There are nerve clusters found in the dentin that can cause a patient to experience soreness or sharp pain when those nerves are unprotected. The team of professionals at Dental Implant Associates is able to provide Chicago dentistry patients with options for protecting exposed dentin.
According to Dr. Flicker, there are basic steps a patient can take to reduce tooth sensitivity:
- Use a toothbrush with soft bristles
- Maintain good overall dental hygiene
- Use a desensitizing toothpaste
- Apply topical fluoride
- Visit a dentist twice a year for general check-ups
If these at-home solutions do not solve a patient's tooth sensitivity, Dr. Flicker recommends visiting a dentist to investigate alternative solutions. In severe tooth sensitivity cases, a tooth may need a filling or a bond. Dr. Flicker says he can also provide patients with a more concentrated form of fluoride that is available over the counter. However, as patients age, their enamel grows thinner and root exposure is more likely, which means tooth sensitivity is often an inevitable and must be addressed with the methods listed above.
Regardless of the severity of the tooth sensitivity, Dr. Flicker encourages patients to begin with home remedies before considering dental work. While temperature sensitivity is a minor form of tooth sensitivity that results from the natural aging process and normal wear, a patient experiencing major sensitivity and pain is advised to consult with an experienced dentist to resolve the issue.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
