NEW SMILES - From Left: Dr. Doyel, Dr. Aanderud and Dr. McKinney.The end of the school year is upon us, and for high school juniors, seniors and college-bound freshmen, there’s no better time to schedule a wisdom teeth extraction.

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars on each side of the jaw; they typically develop between the ages of 16 to 21.

While some wisdom teeth grow in straight naturally, it is fairly common for these teeth to appear disordered, with teeth jutting out at uncomfortable angles. These pearly latecomers also tend to crowd out existing teeth, damaging their neighbors, the jawbone and nearby nerve endings.

Another possibility is for the wisdom teeth to become “impacted,” meaning that they fail to break through the gums or only partially pierce the skin layer. These openings are ripe for cavities and infection, especially because their awkward placement makes brushing and flossing impacted teeth difficult.

But while the consequences of unremoved wisdom teeth can be quite painful, extracting these teeth is a safe and routine dental procedure that takes a few hours or less. At New Smiles, we use a local or general anesthetic to make the surgery breeze past. The recovery period is generally takes a few days.

New Smiles is Sherwood’s No. 1 choice for excellence in cosmetic dentistry and beyond. Schedule an appointment today to learn if you or your teenage child is a good candidate for wisdom teeth extraction.

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Dr. Scott JohnsonThe repercussions of poor decision-making reverberate far longer than our actions. This can be especially hard for younger folks to understand.

This message hits home after learning that Brian Johnson, lead singer of iconic rock-and-roll group AC/DC, can no longer perform with his band.

Johnson recently told CNN that he risked “total deafness” if he continued to perform in large stadiums and arenas. In a statement, he said that he already has difficulty hearing the guitars and other musicians on stage.

Johnson called his new diagnosis his “darkest day.” It’s a poignant reminder that we often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone.

The culprit? Sensorineural hearing loss. Damage to the inner ear caused by overexposure to loud noises is usually permanent and cannot be repaired, either by surgery or medication. But, like all forms of noise-induced hearing loss, it is entirely preventable.

Preventing sensorineural hearing loss costs as little as a pair of foam ear plugs. If you or a loved one are routinely exposed to constant loud noise over 85 decibels (about as loud as a vacuum cleaner), make sure to dampen those sounds or leave the area.

The good news? If you have already been diagnosed or suspect you may suffer from noise-induced hearing loss, there are excellent options and technology available to help you regain the sounds you’ve been missing. Give us a call to learn more about sensorineural hearing loss, how it can be prevented, or what to do after being diagnosed.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonHave you heard about the latest DIY (do it yourself) trend? It’s dangerous, foolhardy—and completely legal.

It’s hard to believe, but according to this consumer alert put out by the American Association of Orthodontists, some people are starting to use DIY methods to self treat their crooked or gap teeth.

A quick search online pulls up hundreds of references to these so-called “quick fix” projects. Some of these solutions use things like rubber bands or dental floss, but the most outrageous involve constructing faux braces out of paper clips, or a retainer out of modeling clay.

Folks, this is crazy. You can cause extensive (and very expensive) damage to your teeth, bone and soft tissue by messing around with dental experiments.

Why? Well, for starters, orthodontists don’t just align your teeth based on aesthetics. In fact, the functionality and long-term health of your teeth is our primary concern; style always comes second. Trying to self treat misaligned teeth could very easily result in loss of the supporting tooth root, gum recession or, in the worst case, loss of teeth altogether.

Moreover, orthodontists are uniquely qualified specialists with over 10 years of rigorous education. We’re professional, reliable and safe.

So take it from me: don’t experiment on your teeth. You get what you pay for, and without the help of a dental professional, you could be causing your teeth serious (if not irreparable) harm.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Russell KortDuring my last Insider article, I spoke of the importance of BALANCE.

I am reminded of my message as I write this. Recently we had a good friend lose her balance while walking through a store. She fell backwards and hit her head on the floor. She passed away three days later.

Our balance system begins to break down as we age. We can speed up this process by eating, drinking and breathing TOXIC substances, and ignoring past traumas.

Concussions recent and long since forgotten have a profound effect on our balance as we get older.

Degenerative diseases like diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s all cause the breakdown of these critical areas of the brain that control our BALANCE.

Balance issues manifest slowly over time. Some symptoms are obvious, like bumping into walls or tipping over when you are tying your shoes. Other symptoms are less noticeable. Symptoms may include a CHRONIC stiff neck or back—or FATIGUE when watching TV, playing with electronics or reading. Irritability, frustration and memory loss can all be symptoms of a declining vestibular system.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we address the source of your balance issues by measuring the dysfunction, treating you appropriately and re-measuring for improved results.

BETTER BALANCE, BETTER FUNCTION, BETTER LIFE.

NEW SMILES - FROM LEFT: Dr. Doyel, Dr. Aanderud and Dr. McKinney show off their pearly whites.At New Smiles, our top priorities are quality dentistry and the comfort and safety of all our patients.

Some of our patients suffer from extremely sensitive teeth, or require prolonged treatment time due to the extensive nature of their dental work. Others feel a deep sense of anxiety over dental procedures.

For your comfort and safety, New Smiles offers several levels of sedation dentistry.

Nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas," is the lightest form of conscious sedation. It is administered by breathing through a nasal mask. It has several very appealing properties. First, it is very short acting and is completely eliminated from the body minutes after turning it off, thereby allowing the patient to leave the office without an escort because there is no “hangover” effect. Secondly, nitrous oxide can be patient regulated. If you want to feel more of its effects, you simply breathe more frequently and deeply. Conversely, if you breathe through your mouth, you will feel less of its effects. 

Oral minimal sedation. Oral pre-medication or pills are the next step up in the conscious sedation spectrum. Many different medications can be used, with Valium, Halcion and Ativan being some of the most common ones. The advantages to oral pre-medication are that it is more effective than nitrous oxide, and it is also very inexpensive to administer. The patient will usually take the medication a half hour to one hour prior to the appointment, and the duration of the effects will vary. But, in all cases, the patient must have an escort both to and from the office. Although more effective than nitrous oxide, the effectiveness and onset of action are unpredictable.

IV moderate sedation. Intravenous sedation, also known as "twilight or conscious sedation," will put you in a safe, relaxed and comfortable state throughout your surgery. It is the most effective means of reducing awareness and anxiety for dental procedures. It is administered through an intravenous line (IV), and is therefore much more predictable in terms of effectiveness due to the quick onset of action. Although the patient is technically conscious throughout the procedure, in most cases, they will be completely unaware of the dental procedure and may even fall asleep. The disadvantage of conscious sedation is, of course, the increased cost and the need for an escort home after the procedure.

General anesthesia. This type of IV sedation must be administered by an anesthesiologist because the level of sedation is much greater and often requires the use of a breathing tube. The patient is unconscious throughout the entire procedure. This level of sedation is reserved for patients who are not candidates for either oral or IV moderate sedation or for prolonged dental or surgical procedures. It is very safe and effective but more expensive that IV moderate sedation.

Change your smile. Change your life.

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Dr. Scott JohnsonMay is Better Hearing & Speech Month, and Dr. Scott Johnson of Oregon Hearing Solutions is partnering with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association to help educate the general public and promote safe listening habits.

In honor of the month-long advocacy campaign, Dr. Johnson will also offer hearing aid product demonstrations absolutely free of charge. If you’ve considered buying a hearing aid before, or want to experience the quality and clarity of today’s personal sound-amplifying devices, now is the time to visit.

Of special concern to Dr. Johnson is the increasing danger faced by the world’s young people. A new study released by the World Health Organization reports that 1.1 billion children risk hearing loss due to unsafe listening habits.

Noise-induced hearing loss is entirely preventable—but it’s also irreversible. Parents can help prevent hearing loss by limiting headphone usage to one or two hours a day, enforcing “listening breaks,” keeping the volume on MP3 players below the halfway point and modeling good listening behaviors themselves.

“Parents who have any concern about their child’s hearing should schedule a hearing evaluation immediately,” Dr. Johnson says. “Early treatment can help prevent or mitigate many of the negative repercussions from hearing loss, so it is critical that parents not delay.”

Concerned parents can find more information online at www.identifythesigns.org. To schedule a hearing test appointment or for a free product demo, call or stop by Oregon Hearing Solutions today!

KORT CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Russell KortThe most common and concerning conditions we treat at Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care are BALANCE ISSUES associated with falls, concussions and auto collisions.

Falls are the third most common cause of death according to a 2014 report from the Centers for Disease Control.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we evaluate the balance systems of the brain with specialized testing equipment. With this information we can target specific therapies to improve the balance of most individuals in as little as 30 days.

Dr. Kort utilizes a special acoustic exercise platform to reestablish balance where it was once lost or diminished.

“In our clinic we have seen significant improvement in patients of all ages, from children to seniors. We treat a wide variety of conditions that affect balance and gait.”

Recently, Dr. Kort conducted a balance study on a group of individuals ranging in age from 52 to 85. His findings were profound. Balance improved 69 percent in one week. In addition to this he showed dramatic improvement in 11 other categories that he measured.

The techniques he is using are getting the attention of doctors all over the world. Dr. Kort was recently ask to speak on his findings at the Oregon Chiropractic Convention and internationally in South Korea at a large physicians’ conference.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonRemember when we had to walk to school uphill both ways in a blizzard? Well, our kids also have it better than us when it comes to their braces. What’s changed? The short answer—lots! But we’ll focus on three main points.

Comfort level is probably the biggest change. Namely, the advent of nickel-titanium wire. This is an incredibly flexible wire that puts very light forces on the teeth, which translates into much greater comfort.

In the old days, there used to be six to eight different wires used over the course of treatment, causing very sore teeth for weeks at a time. Now we typically use only three wires over the course of treatment.

Braces are also much lower profile. They are much more comfortable on the lips and cheeks.

Treatment efficiency is the next big change. It was once common for kids to have braces for three to five years. That time is now closer to 18 to 24 months on average, with some finishing even faster. Braces are made with much more highly refined “prescriptions” built in, which moves the teeth faster and with less wire bending.

Lastly, braces are way more fun for kids. Today’s models feature lots of bright colors and glow in the dark materials. We have braces in the shape of stars, hearts, footballs, etc. (provided by WildSmiles). We have clear braces and gold braces. We have Invisalign (no braces at all).

NEW SMILES - From Left: Dr. Doyel, Dr. Aanderud and Dr. McKinney.At New Smiles, we can dramatically whiten your teeth in six weeks or less. But if your teeth aren’t stained yet, here are five easy ways to keep your smile gleaming.

Avoid foods that stain. The big offenders are coffee, tea, soda and red wine, but lesser known culprits like beets, blueberries, soy sauce or ketchup can discolor your smile too. Be sure to brush after eating or drinking these foods, or at least rinse your mouth with water afterwards.

Use straws. If a liquid doesn’t touch the fronts of your teeth, it’s less likely to stain them. It may seem odd to drink hot coffee through a straw, but if you’re committed to your pearly whites, sipping through a straw is an easy fix.

Stop smoking! Besides increasing your risk for oral cancer, both smoking and chewing tobacco darken your teeth over time.

Proper home care. Brushing your teeth is crucial to maintaining a healthy (and aesthetically pleasing) smile, but it’s important to check in with a professional as well. Make sure to schedule a dentist appointment at least twice a year.

Consider a whitener. Professional tooth-whitening is very effective and can significantly brighten your smile. Ask your dentist for more information. DIY whiteners can be effective to some degree. However, if you have any concerns about the health of your teeth or gums, you should consult your dentist first.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonYour child’s baby teeth aren’t permanent, but that doesn’t mean you should wait until their last tooth falls out to schedule an initial screening with an orthodontist. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends scheduling a child’s first appointment at age seven or eight.

Why? For starters, catching certain problems early means we have a much greater chance for success. Some problems can only be fixed (or are best fixed) at an earlier age.

We check for a number of orthodontic problems at your child’s first visit, including jaw growth imbalances such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and crowding of the teeth.

For 8 to 10-year-old kids, treatment, if recommended, is not about straightening teeth, but about correcting growth-related issues. This early treatment lasts about 6 to 12 months for most kids.

In general, most children receiving early treatment will require full orthodontic treatment once their permanent teeth come in. Having corrected the growth issues early, this should require less time and lead to more ideal outcomes (fewer impacted teeth, fewer extracted teeth, etc.).

It is important to note that not all kids will need treatment at this age. Personally, I am conservative about recommending early treatment, unless there is a strong benefit.

Even if I don’t ultimately recommend early treatment for your child, it is still important to schedule an initial screening, so that we can create an observation schedule to recommend treatment at the appropriate time.

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Dr. Scott JohnsonHearing loss doesn’t just affect seniors and adults. In fact, at least 46 percent of teens report experiencing the warning signs of hearing loss—ringing, roaring, buzzing, or pain in the ear. Here’s the complete breakdown of teenagers’ dangerous listening habits.

Is hearing loss common in teens? Yes, and it’s becoming more common. Rates of noise-induced hearing loss have jumped by over one-third for adolescents between the ages of 12 to 19.

What are the long-term effects? Excessive noise levels can lead to a number of health problems down the road, including sleep disturbances, poor cardiovascular circulation, and tinnitus.

Is it preventable? Of course! Noise-induced hearing loss is the only form of auditory impairment that can be prevented, and the solution couldn’t be simpler: turn the volume down.

How loud is too loud? Any prolonged noise above 85 dBA can cause permanent damage to the ear. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to keep the volume of any digital music player below 75 percent of the maximum and to limit usage to two hours a day.

When should my child protect his ears? Hearing protection should be worn at any loud event, including concerts and sporting events. Other activities include hunting, fireworks, band/orchestra practice, or while using lawn mowers and power tools.

If you or a loved one participates in any of these high-risk activities, give us a call to learn more about an easy, low-cost solution today!
