This person was missing his upper lateral incisors and had unsightly gaps as a result. Many people are left with spaces created by extraction of teeth due to severe catavities or periodontal [gum] disease.

In those circumstances, the treatment of choice may be a fixed bridge [an attached
group of crowns (caps)] to replace the missing teeth.

Several teeth are prepared [cut in to a  conical shape] to serve us abutments [teeth to which the fixed bridge is attached] so that the Pontics [crowns

that replace the missing teeth] are held in position.

This procedure usually takes 2-4 visits depending on how extensive the situation is, and its completed when the bridge is permanently cemented on the abutment teeth. The most common fixed bridges are made with porcelain fused to metal for both strength and aesthetics. Call our  office if you think you’re a candidate for this type of procedure.

“In this cover story I go over the principles of T3 and how its  can easily be integrated into anyone’s busy lifestyle to change  mind and body forever.”

A recent study at Rutgers University.  And published in Phytochemistry,  confirmed a long-held theory that Ingestion of cranberries is helpful in  protecting harmful bacteria in the urinary tract.

This is due to one of its natural
compounds called proanthocyanidin  [PAC’s], and its anti-adhesion effect.

The anti-adhesion property of
cranberries prevents bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract , which is one of the most common regions for a woman to develop a bacterial infection.

Half off all women will experience at least one urinary tract infection in their lifetime.

E coli, bacteria that cause urinary tract  infections, are becoming

increasingly resistant to common antibiotics.

The study concluded that 80% of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria where prevented from sticking by the anti-adhesion property  of cranberries. There is some conjecture that PAC’s found in the cranberry may minimize  stomach ulcers and gum disease by the  same mechanism.

This study compared the action of PAC’s in cranberries to those in other foods such as grape and apple juice, dark chocolate and green tea. Apparently, not all PAC-rich foods have the same success or offer the same protection.

By means of comparison, one eight-ounce glass of cranberry juice has the equivalent PAC’s as a cup of frozen or fresh cranberries, 1/3 cup of sweetened dried cranberries or 1/3 cup of cranberry sauce.

Both this study and earlier research show that the benefits of one glass of cranberry juice kicks in about two hours
after consumption and last for about 10 hours.

So it is recommended that you drink one glass of cranberry juice in the morning and one evening for the maximum protection. Remember, cranberry is a food and not a treatment.

Keep in mind that anyone who suspects an infection should consult the appropriate health care practitioner.
