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!

Q: Dear Dr. Abraham: I’ve started noticing dark circles under my eyes and my pores are getting bigger. I have to use more make-up than I want to. What can I do? ~ Judy

A: You are not alone. We see and hear this all the time. There are several contributing factors for circles under the eyes. Both anemia and food sensitivities are common medical causes of dark circles, both which can be diagnosed from a simple blood test in the office. From a structural perspective, as we age and our collagen production declines, it is quite common to see what is called a “tear trough deformity.” This happens when we lose volume in our mid face and we are able to see the separation between the two mid-face fat pads. As this occurs, there is an increased shadowing that is accentuated under the eyes. The tissue under the eyes is quite thin and can look crapey, so when we apply make-up it can leave a “caked-on” appearance and make us look older or like we are trying to cover something up.

Increased pore size is another common concern people have. Though there isn’t a direct medical cause, it can contribute to acne, especially if your skin is oily. Large pores also tend to collect make-up and dull the appearance of skin, thus making us look older than we are. I always think about that when I’m looking at my daughters’ skin ~ they have zero pores and their skin just radiates light.

The good news is, there are many different approaches to treating all of your concerns. Depending on a person’s age, skin type and therapeutic goals, we approach the treatment in a very individualized way. Most patients start with dietary changes and individualized skin care and/or make-up. In addition to diet and lifestyle, there are several light and/or heat-based therapies that can help address tone and texture issues. For more immediate effect and changes, dermal fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, or Restylane can be used to give some volume to the mid-face.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC AND CONCUSSION CARE - Dr. Russell KortSince the movie “Concussion” was released there has been a lot of talk about the need to protect our brains.

This is a major focus at Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care. Russell J. Kort, D.C., our chiropractor, is a Board Eligible Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology.

Understanding the symptoms and treatment of a concussion is only part of the equation. PREVENTION is a key component.

This goes way beyond what kind of helmet you wear.

We cannot control whether a brain injury happens from a fall, a car accident or a blow to the head. We can, however, affect how well our brain copes with the trauma.

Inflammation is what make the brain most vulnerable in a concussion.

An inflamed brain does not hurt. Instead it causes symptoms like memory loss, anxiety, depression, aggression, brain fog and neurological and hormonal disorders.

Brain inflammation can be caused by diet and lifestyle choices.

When the brain is inflamed due to injury, barriers in the gut and brain break down. This causes a downward spiral of inflammation and illness that often goes unexplained. Treatment is frequently medication for the symptoms.

The problem is this does not address the root cause of the illness.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we strive to find the source of dysfunction. Our comprehensive care addresses all aspects of your health, from spinal dysfunction to brain and gut inflammation.

The factors that support brain health are the same factors that support your body’s overall health.

To learn more about concussions and brain health, join us on Friday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m. for a

FREE screening of the Frontline documentary “League of Denial.”

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Dr. Scott JohnsonHearing loss—the third most common physical ailment after arthritis and heart disease—affects over 48 million Americans. By age 65, more than a third of us experience some form of auditory impairment.

But despite its widespread presence, far too many hearing loss cases go untreated. In fact, more than two-thirds of those with hearing loss do not currently use a hearing aid. A new study, however, warns that untreated hearing loss may increase the risk of developing dementia.

Dr. Frank Lin, an otologist at Johns Hopkins University, released a study this January showing that the mental abilities of seniors with hearing loss degrade 30 to 40 percent faster than those with normal hearing.

The study tracked 2,000 men and women age 75 to 84 for six years. Those with hearing loss experienced increased difficulty with their memory and concentration.

Let’s be clear: just because you have hearing loss doesn’t mean you’re automatically going to develop dementia. In fact, there’s no direct evidence that hearing loss causes dementia, just that the two are connected.

But as an audiologist, I have seen firsthand how auditory impairment isolates individuals, breaking down the lines of communication between co-workers, family, and friends. Numerous other studies correlate loneliness and disengagement with dementia as well.

This is one of the many reasons why it’s more important than ever to treat hearing loss. Visit me at Oregon Hearing Solutions for your professional consultation today.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonEvery few weeks or so, I talk with a potential patient who’s been promised the same orthodontic services I offer, but with the braces off in half the time.

As an efficiency-minded person myself, I understand the desire to save time and money. But just like the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

The time it takes for an orthodontic system to work depends on a variety of factors, everything from diet and metabolism to the speed of bone formation on the cellular level. Each person is different, making it challenging to predict how quickly teeth will move until some time has passed.

And while there have been tremendous changes in the orthodontics industry overall, you should beware oversold promises about any particular brand.

Today’s braces use thinner wires that are more flexible and sit at a lower profile on your teeth. This, in turn, makes the braces more efficient and more comfortable. Of course I am personally committed to utilizing the most current and efficient technology. But these changes have been adopted by all major companies, and the differences between brands is mostly based on individual orthodontists’ preferences.

Instead, what truly matters is the experience of your orthodontist and their commitment to doing the job right. Braces are a big expense that affect your appearance for life. It is important to choose a provider based on quality of results, being careful about what is promised in terms of time and cost.
