MICHAEL D. CARY, DMD - Dr. Michael CaryThis question is all the more important during summer months, when we and our kids are out playing football, soccer, and other sports, not to mention climbing trees, setting up tents, and just generally enjoying the outdoors.

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the US alone, and many more become loose, chipped, or fractured. Knowing how to prevent damage—and what to do if damage occurs—can mean the difference between losing a tooth and keeping it.

How to prevent tooth breakage/damage/loss

1.) Use a mouth guard while playing sports

2.) Avoid chewing on ice, extremely hard foods, and fingernails

3.) Never use teeth to open packages, soda cans, beer bottles, etc.

4.) Get regular dental checkups to ensure there are no problems with any existing crowns, fillings, or other dental work

5.) Keep teeth strong by avoiding sugary foods, getting enough vitamin D and calcium, and brushing and flossing regularly

How to prepare yourself for a dental emergency

Keep an emergency dental kit on hand. In a small plastic box, pack gauze, saline solution, ibuprofen, and the phone number of Dr. Cary’s office 503-266-6855. Keep this kit in a medicine cabinet at home, and don’t forget to bring it with you on family vacations.

Dr. Cary offers emergency dental health services to all of his patients and to anyone else who needs it. Call anytime, day or night. Any other questions? Please call Dr. Cary’s office 503-266-6855 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Enjoy the rest of the summer, safely!

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealThe end of summer means it’s time to get back to school. For some, this means heading off to college for the first time. With that in mind, here is some friendly advice about college that I wish I had known as a freshman:

  • Make friends with someone in your dorm that owns a car, you will need a ride for something important later in the year.
  • The four basic food groups are NOT Ramen, Mountain Dew, Pizza, and Cheesy Grillers. A balanced diet will keep your mind and body sharp and ready for the challenges at school.
  • 100/200 level classes can be harder than 300/400 level classes, so keep at it, it gets better and more interesting in your 3rd and 4th years!
  • Sleep is a poor substitute for caffeine. Actually, it’s the other way around but every now and then you need a boost to get all that studying and projects done.
  • Want high grades? Mark every quiz, test, project, paper, and final on a calendar, along with WHAT PERCENTAGE OF YOUR GRADE each is. When you have tests or assignments from different classes with similar due dates, study for the test or complete the assignment that means more to your grade first.
  • Buy a reliable computer and printer. Otherwise, one of them is sure to break down the night before your mid-term paper is due. And have Mom buy a couple extra ink cartridges when she gets you the industrial-sized laundry detergent that will last the whole year
  • Get involved! College is all about trying new things. I was a pre-dental Biology major but I had the chance to be involved with residence life, to DJ for two semesters, to play intramural sports, and to star in several plays.
  • Brush and floss 2x a day for 2 minutes, and if you have any dental issues or questions, visit Neal Family Dental in Canby; we can create a smile that you are happy to show off. Good luck and have fun!

    GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonAs a parent, keeping your child safe from harm is a top concern, and it's particularly important when they're inside a moving vehicle. In honor of Child Passenger Safety Week, September 18 to 24, remember these basic guidelines to help keep your kids safe on the road.

    Use the right car seat or booster for your child based on their age, weight and height. There are three main types: rear-facing car seats for infants and toddlers, forward-facing car seats for toddlers and preschoolers, and booster seats for children ages 8 to 12 years.

    Always keep kids 12 and younger in the back seat. The powerful force of an air bag deploying can cause serious injury and may even be fatal for children.

    Buy your car seats new or from a trusted source. If you can't verify a car seat's full past, including the expiration date and accident history, don't get it.

    Get your car seat inspected by a professional. Improper use or installation of a car seat can put your child's safety at risk, and it's more common than you might think.

    Set a good example for your children. Always keep your own seat belt safely fastened.

    In addition to these guidelines, all 50 states have child safety seat laws with different requirements and penalties. Make sure you're following your state's laws and keeping your child as safe and secure as possible when riding in the car.

    CLUB FIT - FROM LEFT: Ron and Barb RainesFall is a whirlwind of festivals, fairs, exhibits and, of course, beer gardens. Staying on the fitness track can be challenging. Club Fit has a few tips to help you:

  • Exercise EVERY DAY, even if it’s just a brisk walk. 1 mile of walking can burn 150 calories!
  • Hydrate before you attend an outing and you won’t crave salty junk food. If you can bring extra water, do it.
  • Eat a healthy meal BEFORE you go. You’ll save in dollars AND in calories.
  • Many festivals have a BBQ dinner tied to a fundraiser—anything served there is better than carnie cart food.
  • No deep fried ANYTHING at your outing. Burritos, soba noodles, veggies and chicken, even baked potatoes are good alternatives to fried food.
  • Beer and wine are expensive at festivals; limit your consumption to no more than 2 alcoholic beverages, and mix a bottle of water in between alcoholic beverages. When you get home, take a shower and drink another glass of water. You will save on calories, sleep better, and be better able to stay on top of your fitness goals moving forward.
  • Get extra rest the night before. Rest lowers your cortisol levels, making it less likely you’ll binge on bad food.
  • Get out and enjoy the festivals and outings but follow the Club Fit festival survival guide; you’ll keep your fitness goals right on track.

    CANBY CLINIC - Dr. Erin WalkerFlu outbreaks can happen as early as October and as late as May, but they usually peak between December and February. When you first feel yourself becoming sick there are things you can do to avoid becoming ill or to shorten the duration of illness. These suggestions are especially helpful if you do them early on – as early as possible to boost your immunity. They will help you fend off the flu, colds, or minor infections. 

    Eat Very Lightly or Take out the "Bad Stuff" -- With most illnesses the appetite is diminished, this is a natural response of the body. Energy is needed to fight off the “bug” and the body doesn’t have the energy to process food. Give your digestive tract a rest! Take out foods that are inflammatory, high in sugar, bad fats, or that contain simple carbs. Don’t just eat to eat, believe it or not, but sometimes your body does need a break from meals!

    Get Rest as Soon as Possible -- Many people ignore the early warning signs of illness and keep on working until they “drop.” You will take longer to heal if you allow the illness to get a foothold. If you feel a sore throat, headache, congestion, etc., coming on, take it easy. If possible, take a day off from work. This may prevent you from having to take three days later on.

    Drink Plenty of Fluids -- Drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day! You can clear the toxins from a “bug” out of your system with large amounts of filtered water and herbal teas.

    Take Immunity-Boosting Supplements and Homeopathics

    Vitamin C:  Take 1,000 mg every 3-4 hours with a small amount of food.  Cut back on dosage if stools become loose.

    Vitamin A: Take 10,000 IU three times daily. (Women who are pregnant should not take high doses of Vitamin A as it can have adverse effects on the fetus.

    Zinc: Take 30-50 mg once daily with a small amount of food. This can be continued for 1-2 weeks without depleting copper stores in the body.

    Oscillococcinum: Take 6 pellets of this homeopathic remedy every 6 hours at the first onset of flu or cold symptoms. Take away from food.

    Take Immunity-Enhancing Herbs* – These herbs can be taken as teas (3-5 cups/day), tinctures or syrups (30 drops 4 times a day), or in freeze-fried capsules (2 capsules 4 times a day).       Echinacea (Purple Cone Flower)                                              Hydrastis (Goldenseal)       Commiphora Myrrha (Myrrh)                                                     Trifolium (Red Clover)       Ligusticum (Osha)                                                                     Elderberry (best in syrup form) *These are adult dosages. Consult your physician regarding dosages for infants and children.

    Give Yourself a Home Hydrotherapy Treatment (A Hot Foot Bath)– Soak feet in hot water while wrapped in a warm wool blanket. Put a cold cloth on your head and relax while you sit in a comfortable position for 10-15 minutes. Take care to avoid getting chilled after this treatment. Or...

    Throat or Chest Compress– Warm the throat or chest with a warm washcloth or hot shower. Dry the skin thoroughly and apply a thin cotton wrap (to throat) or a thin cotton T-shirt (to chest) that has been soaked in cold water and wrung out so that it is not dripping wet. Cover this with a wool scarf (throat) or a wool sweater (chest). Go to bed this way. By morning the scarf or T-shirt will be dry. This treatment increases circulation and increases white blood cell activity.

    Do not consume foods that don't nourish your body. These include foods that have high sugar content, too little protein, overuse of junk food/preservatives, and that include known food sensitivities. 

     If your symptoms do become severe please give us a call and schedule an appointment.

    CANBY TELCOM - Derrick MotternOnly 48% of Internet users nationwide report being happy with their WiFi device and signal strength. Complaints about the number of Internet connected devices that can simultaneously connect, the lack of signal reach especially in large and multi-level homes, and latency issues with their WiFi connection, regardless of provider, are frequent.

    One culprit for poor WiFi performance can be interference. Homes situated in close proximity to their neighbors can experience signal interference if both household devices are programmed on the same frequency. Microwave ovens, thick walls, large mirrors, cordless phones, wireless speakers, and some Bluetooth elements can emit frequencies that block WiFi signal strength in a home.

    Another reason for poor performance could be the distance of the device from the WiFi router itself. Or, there could be simply too many devices simultaneously fighting for bandwidth. Those devices may have an older wifi connection card and may not be able to keep up with the provided signal.

    Our members tell us that they want a simple, reliable way to create a home network with a product that works in every corner of their home – and sometimes outdoors too! Our WiFi Home Networking product uses the latest technology and provides the fastest signal to reach as far as the member needs and connect to all of those in-home devices. It is professionally installed at the best location for the strongest, most consistent signal in EVERY room to eliminate typical WiFi challenges and create a positive, consistent WiFi experience.

    CANBY CLINIC - Dr. Robert Neilson, ND In the natural health community, there are few topics that stir up as much controversy as coffee.  This article by no means settles the controversy, rather, it brings about the main “Pro’s and Con’s” to coffee consumption. Recently there have been several studies on the health benefits from coffee including a reduced risk of various cancers, Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and depression.  The beneficial effects from coffee are from the antioxidants from both the caffeine and the polyphenols.  Coffee also has a role in reducing inflammation, which is at the heart of most chronic disease

    There is of course, the dark side to coffee as well.  Caffeine can have adverse effects on health including raising blood pressure, increasing cholesterol, irritating the stomach, worsening fibrocystic breast syndrome, and causing anxiety.  I would recommend avoiding coffee if you are exhausted, because it can further tire out your adrenal system.  Another issue around coffee to consider is mold and pesticides.  Coffee is one of the most heavily sprayed foods and mold has been present in up to 30% of the coffee on the market.  To minimize the mold and pesticides in your coffee, freshly grind the beans, and use higher quality organic coffee.  

    If you are interested in more information regarding coffee, and whether it is a good beverage for you, please visit with one of the physician at Canby Clinic.  To set up an appointment, call (503) 266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

    MICHAEL D. CARY, DMD - Dr. Michael Cary“Brush your teeth twice a day.” “Don’t forget to floss every day.” “Visit the dentist twice a year.”

    We’ve been hearing this advice our whole life. Yet so few actually follow it. One-third of Americans don’t brush twice a day. Half of Americans never floss. And a third don’t visit the dentist at all.

    Taking care of your teeth for just 5 minutes per day and visiting the dentist regularly can reduce chance of heart disease, infections and even dementia — as well as issues with our teeth and gums.

    Brush twice a day and floss daily:

    To remove plaque, a whitish substance that coats the teeth. It contains bacteria that can cause major health problems in your mouth as well as throughout your body, from your lungs to your heart to your brain.

    To prevent cavities. The bacteria in plaque converts sugars from the food you eat into acid plaque, which softens tooth enamel and causes holes in the teeth.

    Visit the dentist twice per year:

    To remove tartar. Plaque can harden on teeth and under the gum line to form tartar. Tartar and bacteria can make your gums swell and bleed (a condition called gingivitis).  This can progress into advanced gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Tartar can only be removed with a dental cleaning by a dental hygienist.

    To identify problems before they get worse.

    Call today to schedule a dental cleaning or if you have any questions about your oral health, our staff is happy to help.

    Brought to you by Tim Gustafson - Gustafson Insurance - INSURANCE INSIDER -


    GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonAccording to the Department of Transportation, more than 40 percent of young adults age 19 and younger are licensed and on the road. These teen drivers face crash rates nearly three times higher than those of drivers 20 years of age and older, and those rates climb even higher at night and when teen passengers are present. Statistics like these help explain why younger drivers can be more expensive to insure.

    If you're looking for ways to offset the increase in annual premiums after adding a teen driver, take note of these possible cost-saving measures.

    Include them on an existing policy. If your teen will share the cars you already own, you may save some money by assigning them to the vehicle that's the least expensive to insure.

    Buy your teen an older vehicle. If your new driver will need his or her own car, you can generally get lower rates by putting them in an older, used model.

    Take advantage of good-student discounts. Some insurance companies offer a discount to students who make and maintain good grades.

    Still, most parents are also concerned about their child's well-being on the road. Keep safety in mind when car shopping, and investigate technology like monitoring devices that let you supervise your child's speed and location or cell phone signal blockers that prevent calls and texts while the car is in motion.
