UNIONDALE, N.Y., July 5 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent survey* conducted by Harris Interactive for new Orajel(R) Advanced Tooth Desensitizer, nearly half of all American adults (46 percent) have experiencedsensitive teeth in the past five years. Of these sufferers, almost half either did nothing about their sensitive teeth or were not satisfied with their treatment options. ... "So many people live with tooth sensitivity," says Chris Kammer, D.D.S., dental expert in private practice in Madison, Wisconsin, and founding member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). "I find that many people don't like using sensitive teeth toothpastes because of the bad taste and the length of time it takes to actually feel some results." According to the survey, tooth sensitivity has changed the lives of 55 percent of people suffering from dental sensitivity, and in fact, 41 percent admitted to actually having changed the way they ate or drank (e.g., using a straw, eating only on one side of their mouth, etc.) in order to live pain-free.So much human misery. Hey, I've got one for you: NEW SURVEY SHOWS NEARLY ALL SENTIENT AMERICANS SUBJECT TO MOST INTRACTABLE CONDITION OF ALL: THE HUMAN CONDITION." I can think of so many things I did today in an effort to live pain-free. Most didn't work, but hey, if it makes you feel better, go 'head, knock yourself out. See below.
"Teeth sensitivity is more than just an annoyance -- it can have life-disrupting consequences for many people," says Kammer.

Back to work on the information pipeline today, feeling a little more rested. Allowed myself half an hour to talk to some rocket-scientists with the tape recorder on, they gave some good quote, I think I have a decent angle on this one. Their really impressive proof-of-concept: n-dimensional analysis for market research. Seriously, they really zip through bazillions of consumer choices to produce an amazing statistical composite of our way of life. I love this stuff. I guess I'm a geekster.
