KORT CHIROPRACTIC & CONCUSSION CARE - Russell Kort, DCFor the past year, I have written numerous articles about concussions and collisions.

I have listed many adverse effects related these types of injuries. Symptoms such as loss of balance, focus, energy, sensitivity to light and sound, slips in eye movements, digestive issues, depression, anxiety, headaches, migraines, neck and back pain, and so much more.

In the past year, something amazing has happened in my practice. We have developed protocols that have changed the way I treat patients.

By looking at brain function, we are better able to treat dysfunction in the body. This has dramatically shortened the duration of our treatment and your recovery.

I call this concept “Time Compression,” a shortened amount of time people are under my care.

This is achieved by focusing on all that is skewed in the patient’s system and addressing the source of the condition, from the brain and gut to balance and the spine.

It is this comprehensive, whole-body approach that is changing the way our patients see chiropractic. At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we are committed to learning why you’re not feeling well, then giving you proper focused treatment and strategies to enhance your life and your whole-body health.

Call our office today to schedule an appointment for a complimentary consultation.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. C. Todd WilsonThis Holiday season, take time to reflect on the ways you are blessed in your lives. Enjoy spending time with your family and loved ones, as that time is precious above all.

As we move forward into the New Year, be sure to acknowledge the people who make sacrifices on your behalf. And, importantly, ponder the ways that you might return to those who give to you.

I am ever grateful to the Sherwood community for being a part of my practice’s family. It is a great honor and a privilege to have been entrusted with providing orthodontic care to so many over the years.

As such, I have always believed that providing orthodontic care is only part of my responsibility. A big part of my obligation as a professional is to give back to the community. That I do by supporting a multitude of community events, school fundraising efforts, athletics, the arts, and more.

Our Rewards Program also emphasizes this, offering kids points for participating in community service.

Each year I provide free orthodontic treatment to a number of people who have high orthodontic need but who otherwise could not afford treatment. This is one of my most rewarding endeavors, witnessing the positive changes this brings in the form of improved health and self-image.

I recognize how others help me, and I strive to give back. I encourage us all to look for more opportunities to ‘pay it forward’ in the coming year. Happy Holidays!

NEW SMILES DENTAL - Dentists Nathan Doyel, Benjamin Aanderud and Richard McKinney.Are you one of the many Americans who don’t seek dental care because you don’t have dental insurance?

Having healthy teeth and gums can affect your self-esteem, how well you eat and sleep and even affects your overall health. Unfortunately, most dental insurance plans have a maximum yearly benefit of $1,000, which hasn’t changed since the 1960s!

That means that your dental premiums probably only cover routine cleanings, fluoride and X-rays, which leaves you to pay entirely out of pocket for any other treatment. And that’s only if you’re one of the 64% of Americans who have dental insurance through your employer.

While we accept most dental insurance plan payments at New Smiles, we’ve also seen the need for an alternative. As open-enrollment season for dental insurance approaches, we’d like to offer our patients the option of our New Smiles Dental Membership.

At New Smiles, we offer membership plans that are comparable to the cost of most group dental plans. For example, a basic membership is only around $30/month and will cover twice-yearly exams, cleaning and X-rays, an emergency exam, a smile consultation and 15% off ALL other dental procedures, including cosmetic procedures with NO maximum benefit!

Don’t let inadequate dental insurance prevent your family from getting the care that you need. This upcoming year, consider New Smiles Dental Membership as an alternative to your current plan. Call our office today at 503-925-9595 for more information.

KORT CHIROPRACTIC AND CONCUSSION CARE - Russell J. Kort, D.C.In recent articles, I have written about concussions and the effects they have on the brain.

Balance issues are common side effects of a concussion. These symptoms are most noticeable when our eyes are closed. Think about it. How often do you blink per day? The average is 28,800 times. However, if you are experiencing sensitivity to light or sound, that number could be much higher.

Balance is the key to life, and if your balance is altered with every blink of your eyes, your quality of life will be compromised. Falls are one of the top five causes of death of people over 50.

Most of us take balance for granted. Imagine for a second if every time you blink you thought you were falling. Do you think the muscles of your neck and back will be loose and relaxed? NOT A CHANCE!

People with balance issues are plagued with neck and back issues. This is because the brain is working constantly to stabilize them against the ravages of gravity.

If the source of the problem is not addressed, then the problem will never go away.

At Kort Chiropractic and Concussion Care, we have unique and proven solutions for balance and other brain and spinal issues.

Dr. Kort is the pioneering physician utilizing Acoustic Brain Body Exercise as a fundamental treatment program to improve and enhance the lives of those we touch.

Call today for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kort.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. C. Todd WilsonAs time passes, as a society, we are placing more and more value on having straight, cosmetically ideal teeth. That is not a bad thing for sure. It is definitely more the norm than the exception to have braces now.

In the not-far-distant past, your dentist was more likely to dismiss your orthodontic needs as “cosmetic” or “optional.” I treat a lot of adult patients who were told they did not need braces as kids. In more recent times, dentists are much more aware of the long-term benefits of having orthodontic treatment and are much more likely to recommend it.

But what exactly is the benefit? Is it just about having straight teeth?

Definitely not. In fact, I recommend treatment for primarily bite-related, or functional reasons. Cosmetics are sort of a side effect, if you will, of having the teeth aligned in the proper bite position.

An orthodontist is trained to place your teeth in proper position in the bite, down to fractions of a millimeter. This is important as the enamel of your teeth, though super-strong, is weaker under certain types of forces. In general, having a proper bite will lead to less wear on your teeth, less dental work over time, less tendency for periodontal disease and healthier jaw joints.

Is it OK to want braces just to get your teeth straight? Sure! But be sure to also consider the health benefits to your teeth and jaw structures.

NEW SMILES DENTAL - Dentists Nathan Doyel, Benjamin Aanderud and Richard McKinney.Leo Buscaglia said it well: “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

At New Smiles we do believe in the power of nice and how a smile really can make a difference. For a loved one who hides their smile due to dull, stained, broken or missing teeth or unhealthy gums, how about give the gift of a smile? Here are just a few ideas:

New Smile in a Day – Our innovative “New Smile in a day” procedure brings hope to those who are concerned about the appearance of their teeth, but fearful of dental work or lack the time for repeat visits. Patients will walk away with entirely functioning, long-lasting teeth.

Electric toothbrush – For those who don’t brush consistently, thoroughly, who have dexterity challenges and/or who have dental work that makes teeth-cleaning difficult or who just want to preserve their dental work-- an electric toothbrush would be a welcome gift. Some of the best-selling models are Oral B & Philips Sonicare.

Whitening -- Professional whitening is the only way to safely and successfully obtain noticeable and rapid results. Easy custom fit trays to wear during the day or night make a whiter smile possible. At New Smiles, new and continuing patients receive this gift FREE.

Happy Holidays from New Smiles!
