BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - July 24, 2014) - Dr. Kevin B. Sands is used to patients asking how they can get a stunning Hollywood smile. A Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist to the stars, Dr. Sands has helped various patients get the smile of their dreams with Invisalign®, a system of clear plastic aligners that can often serve as an alternative to metal braces. Recently, Dr. Sands published a two-part blog series detailing the benefits of Invisalign®, typical treatment costs, and the overall process of using the system to gradually straighten misaligned teeth. He also discussed certain orthodontic problems that could help determine if an individual might be a good Invisalign® candidate.
Dr. Sands' first blog post titled, "Invisalign® Benefits and Cost," shared why Invisalign® is a popular choice for many patients who want to straighten their teeth with discretion. He notes that some of the unique benefits associated with using Invisalign® include:
- Clear, plastic teeth aligners that are practically invisible to others.
- Each teeth aligner is customized to solve the patient's specific orthodontic problems and gradually move the teeth into a straighter position.
- The teeth aligners can be easily removed, which means patients will not have to disrupt their eating, drinking and teeth cleaning habits.
- There are generally less dental appointments required for maintenance.
Dr. Sands goes on to discuss the typical price range for Invisalign® treatment, noting that it is about $3,500 to $8,000, depending on the treatment duration and the patient's specific orthodontic issues.
A follow-up blog post titled, "Invisalign® Candidates and Process," revealed which dental conditions could be fixed with the clear teeth aligners. For example, patients with overly crowded teeth or gaps may be good candidates for Invisalign® treatment. He says it can also be useful to correct over-, under-, and crossbite issues.
Invisalign® treatment involves a series of customized, clear teeth aligners that the patient can take home. After two weeks of use, one set of teeth aligners is discarded for the next in the series. Each set is slightly modified from the one before it in order to gradually move the teeth into a straighter position. Dr. Sands says the whole process can take anywhere from 9 to 20 months for the best results, and ultimately depends on each patient's specific needs. He says that, for people who do not want the discomfort and undesired attention often brought on by traditional metal braces, Invisalign® can be a terrific option.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017. The benefits of the cloud may be clear for applications that can tolerate brief periods of downtime, but for critical applications like SQL Server, Oracle and SAP, companies need a strategy for HA and DR protection. While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
