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

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

We can always do porcelain in future if and when needed. ...Read more
