Blood has 4 key components: white&red cells, platelets & plasma. Is vaginal transudate made of whole blood plasma? If no, then what is transudate?

Blood has 4 key components: white&red cells, platelets & plasma.  Is vaginal transudate made of whole blood plasma?  If no, then what is transudate?

Modified plasma: Contrary to what people believe, the vagina doesn't increase secretions with arousal, instead it just decreases its usual resorption of fluid by altering the effectiveness of ion channels. The vessels draining the vagina constrict as well so reabsorption is inhibited. Essentially it is plasma, but many of the ions are absorbed. The cellular components cannot penetrate through capillaries. ...Read more

First, realize that all dental materials are toxic to some degree and second, that the toxicology of resins is far less researched and far less understood than the effect of amalgams, which itself is inconclusive. I hope this helps! regards. ...Read more

Direct composite bonding vs indirect composite bonding? Is indirect composite bonding more like a veneer placed over the tooth?

Direct composite bonding vs indirect composite bonding? 

Is indirect composite bonding more like a veneer placed over the tooth?

Not really: Most laboratory made veneers are made of porcelain like substances not composites. They are usually stronger than compsite and resist staining more. I use direct composites mostly for smaller cases or when the patien is not sure of what thry are trying to achieve cosmetically because they are easier to adjust shade and shape after. We can always do porcelain in future if and when needed. ...Read more

Could silver filling be replaced with white filling?

Yes: Yes, silver fillings can be replaced by white composite resin fillings. However, some amalgam fillings that extend under the gums might be harder to restore with the composite resins due to the amount of fluid and saliva that could contaminate the site on the tooth into which the composite resin will be placed, thereby reducing the effectiveness and long term survival of the filling. ...Read more
