Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE Tubiday, January 28, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I missed your column on how to save teeth. I saw where another reader wrote you to say she used a similar treatment and still had her teeth 30 years later. I need that information. Could you tell us again just what we should do about loose teeth? Dear Reader I have received more than a thou- sand letters asking for that column from people who have teeth problems." My mail suggests you are not the only one who missed it. The original column was in answer to a young man, 33 years old, who was about to lose his teeth from pyorrhea.

Often these pockets become infected, adding to the problem. The bone around the teeth begins to dissolve causing the teeth to loosen and finally leading to losing the teeth if the process is not stopped. I recommended, and will again, that anyone with this problem should see a dentist. The young man who wrote stated that he had seen a den- tist who had told him nothing could be done about his problem. I strongly disagree with this attitude, as I know many cases where the problem has been controlled. Most modern dentists believe a lot can be done to save teeth in this condition.

That includes how you care for your gingiva. Nutri- tion is an important factor and so is smoking. The program I recommended, while your dentist is cleaning up your teeth, is to be sure you are getting plenty of calcium in your diet. That means the equivalent of at least one quart of milk a day. Also take plenty of vitamin C. Some GEMINI You have breaks and luck corning to you. Be there to benefit from them and enjoy the stir you're'causing: Even- ing celebrations should include rest.

TERMITES Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Bridgett Hofton, age 10, of Huntsville, Ala., for'her question: How do termites tunnel through wood? Termites regard wood as food and also as building material. They eat and build their endless tunnels at the same time. This is odd because wood is made mostly of a tough, indigestible material called cellulose. No animal large enough to be seen can feed upon it. Even the tunneling termites cannot digest it without help. .The world of nature in- cludes a multitude of living plants and animals and all of them depend upon each other, either directly or in- directly. Termites depend upon teams of mini organisms which are too small for our eyes to see. Nor- mally, these bitsy protozoa perform their duties by break- ing up the woody remains of fallen trees. They perform this everyday miracle by changing the indigestible woody cellulose into sugary glucose. Some of these busy protozoa thrive inside the bodies of ter- mites, and the termites could not survive without them. The worker termite has sharp pincer jaws to bite off bits of wood, which she swallows. In- side her- tummy, the protozoa convert the wood to glucose, which she can digest. Hence, for the termites, digging a tunnel through a log is just as easy as sitting down to dinner. However, if the wood digesting protozoa are removed or destroyed, the termites perish. This is not likely because their tiny helpers teem throughout the nest. When the broods of young termites hatch from their eggs, they are mini copies of the adults. The workers feed them mouth to mouth. So even the babies are sure to get their share of wood digesting protozoa. Then the tiny creatures soon begin chewing wood for themselves, and they shed their skins as they grow bigger. The termite nest is shared by hundreds and perhaps thousands of workers. There is at least one egg laying queen, a king and several princes and princesses. There also is an army of soldier ter- mites to defend the family against ants and other enemies. Some people call them white ants, though termites are not related to the ants. Their nearest relatives are the cockroaches, and their ancestors were on earth at least 250 million years ago. In the modern world there are 700 different termites, and 55 of them are found in North America. Qumtioiu ukid by chil- dren of nhould malltd Is Ask Andy, P.O.
