WILSON ORTHODONTICS - C. Scott Wilson, DDSRemember wooden nickels? Your parents definitely do.

Back in the day, when you went to your orthodontist you got wooden nickels as a reward for brushing well. You may have kept them under your bed, or in a box in the garage. Some of you might still have some! You could cash them in for (cheesy) prizes at your dentist’s office.

The main point of such programs is to give kids incentive to brush well, to wear their elastics and follow other protocols during orthodontic treatment. This promotes good oral health, which in turn leads to fewer cavities and less time in braces.

Today, like everything else, our Rewards Program has gone digital. Patients are issued a rewards card at their new patient exam. Points go on the card electronically. You can earn points by being on time for your appointment, practicing great dental hygiene, or just by being a great patient. You can go online at any time and check your point totals.

When it’s time to cash in your points, you simply go online. You can select gift cards from over 200 different stores, like Target, Best Buy and Apple iTunes. Point and click, and the cards are delivered right to your mailbox. No more rubber dinosaurs and plastic parachute men.

Another exciting aspect of our Rewards Program is that you can get points for things totally unrelated to your teeth. This includes things like getting straight A’s, community service, and celebrating personal achievements. Sign up today!

NEW SMILES DENTAL - Dentists Nathan Doyel, Benjamin Aanderud and Richard McKinney.Recent news articles have trumpeted a shocking discovery: You don’t need to floss!

On a tip from his son’s orthodontist, a reporter for the Associated Press filed a Freedom Of Information Act request for research on flossing’s benefits.

When the request turned up only poor-quality studies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services quietly dropped the recommendation to floss in the latest edition of their Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Many news organizations have taken this to mean that there’s no reason to floss. But as anyone who has ever had a piece of corn stuck in their front teeth knows, you don’t need a study to tell you that flossing is very good for you.

Aside from the fact that having food stuck between your teeth is uncomfortable and unsightly, leaving food fragments wedged against your gums can encourage bacterial growth.

Bacteria can cause tooth decay, gum disease and other problems; infections in your mouth can spread to other parts of the body.

Gum disease is a very, very common problem. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that almost half of all Americans suffer from some form of periodontal disease. For Americans over 65, that number rises to over 70 percent.

If the studies to back up flossing are of poor quality, perhaps that’s a sign that more and better studies need to be done. It’s not a sign that you can stop flossing! There is just no good reason to stop using such a simple, affordable, effective tool to help keep your gums and teeth healthy.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC - Russell J. Kort, D.C.My career in medicine began in August 1984 at the age of 18, when I was given the keys to the local ambulance. My first day on the job, I did CPR on my best friend’s grandfather and pulled another friend out from under a car that hit him on his motorcycle. I spent 10 years in emergency medicine, mostly dealing with severe auto collisions.

As a chiropractor of 18 years, I have spent my career learning how to put the body back together following injuries. For the past seven years, my focus has been on the function of the brain and the dysfunction associated when it becomes injured or concussed.

Motor vehicle collisions are one of the major causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and concussions.

When the brain moves within the scull, there is a cause-and-effect scenario. The cause is usually a high-speed stop. When this happens, the brain continues to move forward or backward within the skull. The result is often called a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI).

The effect is often impaired memory, movement, balance, sensitivity to light and sounds, emotional dysfunction, anger, rage, depression and more.

Statistically, one in 10 people will be in an auto collision this year. However, only 30 percent will seek any kind of medical treatment.

I understand the complexities of MTBI and can provide safe and effective brain-based therapy to get you back in the game.

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Scott JohnsonCould heart disease and hearing loss be linked? In a word, yes.

A growing body of research suggests that cardiovascular health and hearing health are frequently connected, according to the Better Hearing Institute.

Although the jury is still out on why there is a link between hearing health and your cardiovascular system (your heart, arteries, and veins), studies have shown that inadequate blood flow caused by cardiovascular disease can contribute to hearing loss.

Perhaps even more alarmingly, it has been suggested that patients with low-frequency hearing loss are at an elevated risk for cardiovascular events like heart disease or stroke. Low-frequency hearing loss can go unidentified by afflicted patients because its symptoms are less noticeable than other types of hearing loss.

Patients may struggle to hear in noisy rooms or in group settings, but information derived from sounds in the middle and high frequencies can mask low frequency hearing loss.

That’s why it’s important for anyone, especially those age 40 and older, to have routine, comprehensive hearing evaluations performed at Oregon Hearing Solutions. In addition to heart disease, hearing loss is frequently associated with other physical, mental, and emotional health conditions.

Patients who address their hearing loss better their quality of life, improving everything from their job performance to their professional and interpersonal relationships.

If you or a loved one are showing signs of hearing loss, call us today or visit www.oregonhearing.com/ to set up a comprehensive hearing evaluation; we’ll help you enjoy more of the years ahead.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC - Russell J. Kort, D.C.Football season is here — and with it comes hard hits and the potential for concussions or Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI).

Each year, there are more than 10,000 high-school football players who suffer concussions. In fact, 47 percent of all concussions recorded in high school stem from football alone. Other sports that are commonly associated with MTBI are soccer, lacrosse and cheerleading.

Many of my MTBI patients presumed their symptoms would naturally go away. Unfortunately, months and even years later, some still experienced or just began to recognize signs of damage such as headaches, dizziness, depression, anxiety, irritability, memory loss, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, and sensitivity to light and noise.

It is a fact that children take longer to heal from a head injury than adults; therefore, it’s crucial to begin rehabilitation sooner than later. We create an individualized treatment program to maximize potential healing.

Not all concussions occur on the field.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we have successfully treated children and adults who have fallen from horses, slipped on the ice, fallen out of bed, had chairs pulled out from under them, fallen on the playground, or been hit in the head by a ball.

The point is, concussions can happen to anyone at any time.

You don’t have to “learn to live” with debilitating concussion symptoms. Seek treatment as soon as possible.

NEW SMILES DENTAL - Nathan Doyel, DMD; Benjamin Aanderud, DMD; and Richard McKinney, DMD.When a patient has a badly decayed or fractured tooth, a crown may be needed. A crown— made of porcelain, ceramic or gold — covers the tooth and restores it to its original shape and size.

For decades, having a crown placed on a tooth has been a multi-appointment process. On the first visit, the tooth is prepared, an impression of it is made and sent it to an off-site lab to create the crown. The patient receives a temporary crown, then about two weeks later would receive the permanent crown.

Now there’s an option called CEREC same-day crowns.

With modern technology, the tooth can be scanned and sent to our in-office milling machines, which create beautiful, ceramic works of art. The crown is then bonded onto the prepared surface of the tooth the same day.

The CEREC System (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a multi-instrument system that allow our dentists to create and place custom-fit ceramic restorations in only one dental visit.

During your appointment at New Smiles, one of our dentists will prepare the tooth and design the restoration using the on-site CEREC technology. With the high-tech system, the crown is created in less than 30 minutes, then placed into the patient’s mouth. The entire appointment lasts between 1-2 hours.

CEREC is not available in every dental office, so give New Smiles a call to learn more about same-day crowns. Find out how we can restore your smile quickly — with beautiful and lasting results.

Change your smile, change your life!

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - C. Todd Wilson, DDSDo I have to wear retainers after braces? Yes. Everyone does. Otherwise, no matter how good your orthodontist did, your teeth will shift.

How long do I have to keep wearing my retainers? No matter how long ago your braces came off, you cannot ever completely stop wearing retainers. If you stop at any time, you should expect some shifting of your teeth.

Which retainer is best for me? There are many options, and your orthodontist can help you determine which is best for you based on your specific correction, age and lifestyle.

Can my wisdom teeth cause my teeth to shift after braces? No. Studies show that your wisdom teeth can’t produce enough force to move your other teeth.

What’s new with retainers? Digital technology. We offer digital models of your teeth in their final perfect position after the braces are removed. This means no matter where you are in the world in the future, you can simply call us and we can 3D print a model of your teeth, make you a new retainer, and send it to you. You no longer have to come into the office for impressions.

When we remove your braces, we begin the retention phase of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a lifetime. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Russell KortSummer is here and Fall Football Season is just around the corner. If you are a coach or a parent you are already thinking about the summer practice schedule.

Contact sports are exciting to watch and play. However, when there is an injury to the brain, parents and coaches must take notice.

The current standard for concussion testing is called ImPACT. It tests neurocognitive function. This test is done on a computer. It measures Verbal, Visual Memory, Processing Speed and Simple Reaction Time.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care we utilize C3 Logix. This is a Dynamic Interactive Test that quantitatively measures ALL of the above and Precision Touch Reaction Time, Simple and Choice Reaction Time, 4 Cognitive Reaction tests, 6 Individual Balance tests, Progressive Visual Acuity tests combined with Metronomic Vestibular Ocular Movement.

If this sounds comprehensive it is. This test was developed by the Cleveland Clinic for Traumatic Brain Injuries. It is the Gold Standard in affordable concussion evaluation.

Let’s face it, injuries to a child’s brain are very SERIOUS. Their brains are growing and continuing to develop. An injury now may have profound effects on their ability to function later.

Baseline concussion testing gives you and your athlete peace of mind. Know before you go…onto the field, the ice or the court.

SPECIAL: The first 10 readers who mention this article will receive a Baseline Concussion Evaluation for $39 (that’s over 50% off).

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonIf you want to play like the pros, you need to wear the same specialized equipment that keeps professional athletes safe and performing at their peak.

But here’s a hint—I’m not talking about their shoes or jerseys. I’m talking about mouthguards.

That’s why Wilson Orthodontics has provided free custom mouthguards to student athletes for the past 14 years. This year, we’ll distribute roughly 500 protectors to football and lacrosse athletes in Sherwood, Newberg and the surrounding communities.

But mouthguards are important for athletes in every sport. So here’s a breakdown that will help you choose the best option.

Ready Made. A ready made (or “stock”) mouthguard is fine, especially if practice is in 20 minutes. But they’re the least safe, least effective and least preferred option. In your mouth, one size really doesn’t fit all.

Mouth Formed. “Boil and bite” mouthguards are probably the most common out there. When heated in boiling water, they become pliable, allowing you to bite down and mold them. Unfortunately, the process isn’t perfect, and these still tend to shift during play.

Custom Made. Hands down, this is the best option. At Wilson Orthodontics, we can make a custom molded mouthguard, and can tailor your mouthguard to your dental history and chosen sport. These are the safest option, and it’s what the pros use too.

NEW SMILES - FROM LEFT: Dr. Doyel, Dr. Aanderud and Dr. McKinney.At New Smiles, our DEKA CO2 laser can be used to treat everything from cold sores to periodontal disease to plastic surgery of the gums.

Here’s how it works. By using a low energy level, the laser can be used to gently stop a cold sore in its tracks before it becomes an ugly, embarrassing distraction.

The DEKA CO2 laser is also great at treating periodontal (gum) disease and gingivitis. By applying the laser to deep pockets it has been shown to decrease these pockets and improve the overall health of the gums and bone.

By increasing the energy level, our laser can be used to sculpt the gum line around short looking teeth creating a natural, beautiful smile. So if you have ever felt you have a “gummy smile” we may have the solution for you!

So remember, the next time you feel that tingle on your lip don’t hesitate to call New Smiles. The procedure only takes about five minutes and will give you the confidence and satisfaction knowing that you eliminated that ugly cold sore before anyone ever noticed.

“Change your smile, change your life.”
