IRINA MOGA DDS - Dr. Irina MogaBrushing and flossing are the best way to prevent cavities, but there’s another way to protect your teeth.

Sealant is a thin, protective coating that adheres to the chewing surface of your back teeth. They’re like a raincoat for your teeth!

The product, made of plastic or other dental materials, can keep cavities from forming and stop early stages of decay. Sealants reduce the risk of decay in molars by almost 80 percent.

Molars are especially good candidates for sealants because they are rough, uneven and a common place for bits of food and bacteria to linger.

Children and adults can benefit from sealants, but the earlier, the better.

First molars erupt around age 6, and second molars break through around age 12.

Sealing the teeth as soon as they emerge can keep them cavity-free from the start, which helps save time and money in the long run.

The process is quick and painless. Your dentist will clean and dry your tooth before placing an acidic gel on your teeth. The gel roughens the tooth’s surface so a strong bond will form between the tooth and the sealant. After a few seconds, the dentists will rinse off the gel and dry your tooth again before applying the sealant and using a blue light to harden it.

Some dental insurance plans cover sealants, so it’s worth checking out.

Call our clinic and find out if sealants are a good option for you and your family.

BEAVERTON LODGE - Margaret Norman“If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.”

This quote — from comedian George Burns, who lived to be 100 — is true for most of us.

The good news, according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), is that it is never too late.

Physical activity is key. It reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease; helps achieve and maintain healthy blood pressure; and reduces the risk of colon cancer and diabetes. It also helps maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints and reduces the risk of falling.

Older adults can achieve significant health benefits with just a moderate amount of physical activity.

At Beaverton Lodge Retirement, a variety of fun and stimulating physical and mental activities give independent seniors choices that fit their likes and physical levels.

We have a professional exercise instructor who specializes in working with seniors in our regular chairside stretch-balance classes, as well as water-aerobic classes in our indoor, heated mineral saline pool.

We have an exercise equipment area; massage therapists; a vibrating massage table; and a Solo-Flex vibrating platform that improves circulation and helps your legs feel good.

For mental exercise, attend our regular Brain Booster Classes.

To relax and express yourself, you can join the coloring class, which is enjoyed by both men and women. Our creek provides natural relaxation with a variety of birds to watch. Or you may attend to your raised-bed garden.

IRINA MOGA DDS, FAMILY & COSMETIC DENTISTRY - Dr. Irina Moga, DDSDo your teeth look dull and stained?

There are many causes for bright-looking teeth to darken, including drinking coffee, tea or red wine; using tobacco; aging; and using medications such as antihistamines, blood pressure medications and tetracycline.

Obviously, cutting out the coffee, wine and cigarettes would help. But beyond that, teeth whitening has become a popular option that produces results quickly.

Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

Whitening doesn’t work on all teeth, so it’s important to talk to your dentist beforehand. For example, yellow teeth will probably bleach well, brown teeth may not respond as well and teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all. Whitening options include:

Toothpastes —Look for the ADA Seal for safe whitening products that have special chemical or polishing agents to provide additional stain removal effectiveness.

In-office bleaching — Usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth. A special light or laser might be used to enhance the action of the whitening agent.

At-home bleaching — Peroxide-containing whitening gel, placed in a tray to fit your teeth, actually bleaches the tooth enamel. The concentration of the bleaching agent is lower than what a dentist would use.

Pacific Medical GroupAugust is National Immunization Awareness Month, designed to make people of all ages check to make sure they are up-to-date on the vaccines recommended for them. Communities throughout the country spend the month raising awareness about the vital role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly diseases.

For school-age children, it’s time to get the immunizations needed to go back to class.

Getting vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health. Diseases can quickly spread among groups of children who aren’t vaccinated.

Child care facilities, preschool programs, schools and colleges are prone to outbreaks of infectious diseases. Children in these settings can easily spread illnesses to one another due to poor hand washing, not covering their coughs, and other factors such as interacting in crowded environments.

When a child comes down with an illness such as whooping cough, chickenpox or the flu, he or she may miss a lot of school while recovering – and somebody will need to stay home to provide care and make trips to the doctor.

Children can spread diseases to newborns too young to have received all doses of recommended vaccines, or people with weakened immune systems, such as some people with cancer and transplant recipients who are also at higher risk of disease.

Call Pacific Medical Group today to make sure your family is properly vaccinated. Immunization Schedule: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonNew printers for both consumers and business have a cautionary warning. Both buy on price or perceived savings while rarely having knowledge of each printer’s associated cost-per page (CPP).

New printer models generally replace a previous model with similar capabilities. Rarely do new models possess startling new capabilities. Printers have a market life cycle of three to four years until replaced by another new model for that segment, just like cars. The new Ford Fairlane, replaces the previous Fairlane. However gasoline is gasoline.

If you use aftermarket factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges which provide 30% to 60% savings, there is another key factor involved with buying a new model printer.

New model printers use “new to the world” cartridge(s) only capable of working in a specific model or series. Each new model or series’ OEM cartridges are your only alternative for a year, or more, until aftermarket factories catch up with collected empty / recycled cartridges, reverse engineered chips, parts and the appropriate ink or toner formulation. So your cartridge cost and associated CPP will be full retail.

Furthermore, most printers ship with an “Introductory”, “Set Up” or “Starter” cartridge(s) with a fraction of the Standard or Low Yield cartridge(s)’ stated “page rating”, let alone the High Yield version with significantly higher page rating and as a consequence a much lower CPP.

How do we approach customers’ printer purchases? Know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by to learn how to get the most value for your money.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonDo “bargain” (cheap) printers save you money? Rarely. Consumers and businesses are sold printers and buy on price, without understanding a printer’s actual cost-per-page (CPP).

Office supply stores, warehouse clubs (limited selection / knowledge) and general merchandise big chain stores (limited selection / knowledge), have printers “on special” for $60 or $70 with $40, $50+ in savings from “regular pricing”. Buyer beware. The least expensive printers have higher CPP. You’ll spend more money for cartridges with a high CPP.

Fully costed CPP costs range as follows: inkjet from $0.05 - $0.30+, black laser from $0.01 to $0.05, color laser from $0.06 to $0.25.

Spending $30 or $40 more on a better inkjet model, or $100 for a laser printer now, saves hundreds (or thousands) of dollars over time, because CPP costs are significantly lower. There are several superior performing and low CPP inkjet printers currently available for about $100. Why save $40 or $50 for an inferior printer?

And remember if you’re interested in factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges, buying the newest printer, which replaced a virtually identical model, means only OEM cartridges are available for a year or more, so you can’t reduce further your CPP for quite a while, with aftermarket cartridges.

How we approach customers’ printer purchases: know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by our store to learn how to get the most value for your money.

WATERHOUSE RIDGE - Jessica SpenstMemory-care patients fare better when they are physically active, involved in activities that stimulate the mind, and experience positive social interactions that generate warm feelings.

According to the National Institute on Aging, there are many activities that memory-care patients can participate in — with help if needed.

The first thing to consider is the individual’s interests in life.

Does listening to, singing or playing music make him feel calm and happy? Does digging in a container garden make her feel more at home, productive and content?

Playing cards and games with others can keep the mind sharper and more focused, build positive social interactions, and is good fun — as long as the individual isn’t overly competitive!

Hobbies such as knitting and painting take concentration, keep hands busy and produce a tangible result.

Walking, swimming, chair aerobics, gentle yoga or dancing are all wonderful ways to move one’s body, generating endorphins to lessen pain and stress and boost the immune system.

These are just a few of the many activities that a memory-care patient may enjoy.

Here at Waterhouse Ridge, which opened in March, our staff is accustomed to making memory-care patients feel comfortable and cared for — and that includes activities.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, an ideal opportunity to learn more about the many aspects of memory loss. For more information, visit the Alzheimer’s Association’s website, www.alz.org/

Meanwhile, make an appointment to take a free tour of our community. We are here to help.

IRINA MOGA DDS FAMILY & COSMETIC DENTISTRY - Dr. Irina MogaDental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned in the bone beneath your gums to replace lost teeth or support dentures. Because implants integrate with your bone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges attached to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth — an important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures, bridges and crowns placed over implants feel more natural.

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures aren’t an appropriate option, due to sore spots, poor support, or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth, requiring extensive dental work for these teeth which may not already be necessary. With implants, no adjacent teeth need to be prepared to hold your replacement tooth in place.

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone. Common conditions can prevent implants from healing properly, including diabetes and smoking. Regular check-ups and routine cleanings are necessary to ensure the long-term health of implants and restorations.

Our clinic offers a full range of dental clinic services, including cleanings and prevention, tooth whitening, crowns, bridges, emergency dentistry, dentures and partials, root canals, Opalescence whitening, Invisalign and more.

Make an appointment for an exam and consultation, so we can assess your dental concerns and offer solutions.

BEAVERTON LODGE RETIREMENT RESIDENCE - Margaret NormanFor many seniors looking into retirement living, one of the first questions they ask is about whether the community will allow them to bring their pet.

Pets provide unconditional love and companionship and keep their masters busy with demands for food, play and regular walks outdoors.

Beaverton Lodge recognizes the importance of pets to our residents. We currently have about a dozen residents with pets and one set of resident managers with a dog.

We welcome most any dog who is a safe good neighbor, without a barking or nipping problem. We ask that dogs reside only on the first floor so their owners can take them outside easily and not use the elevators.

Cats stay in the apartments, so they can live on any floor as long as the owner cares for them properly and is able to keep the litter box clean and so on.

Pet birds can reside on any floor.

The owners of all pets must be able to take care of their needs and clean up after their pet. As with any pet, you would want to have it licensed and vaccinated.

When residents are ill or away from home, some have used a dog walker or at times had other residents look after their pet for a time.

Don’t hesitate to call and ask further questions about our pet-friendly policies. We can also arrange a tour so you can meet some other residents with pets.

FIT ACADEMY - Jarod CogswellThe fitness industry is exploding with an array of options and choosing the right facility can be confusing.

There are now so many studios competing for their share of the fitness market featuring specific disciplines such as yoga, barre, personal training, and boot camps.

And of course, the franchise gyms, low-priced chain facilities, and full-service clubs continue to offer traditional fitness and then some.

 

So which one should you choose? Some factors to consider:

 

Price

What can you afford? What type of value do you put on your personal health? Be realistic about your budget, but remember, you get what you pay for. Higher rates usually relate to better service and quality fitness experiences.

 

Your Health and Fitness Goals

Whether your goal is to lose weight, improve athletically, connect with new friends, or learn a new activity, choose the environment best suited for you. Do you like to exercise with other people? Do you prefer one-on-one training? Would you rather keep to yourself? The best facilities focus on building a motivating culture to help you reach your goals.

The Intangibles

Consistent exercise is challenging for most people. Unfortunately, the fitness industry has a less-than-stellar reputation when it comes to providing a clean and supportive environment.

This impacts the exercise experience, so be selective. Tour the facilities. Meet the staff and members. If you can envision happiness and being sincerely cared for, you probably have found the place for your fitness journey to continue or begin.
