Some dentists don’t place silver fillings at all, maybe your dentist is one of them and that’s why he’s telling you you can’t get silver fillings.
The only time a silver filling wouldn’t last as long is if the cavity preparation isn’t deep enough or retentive enough, but this usually is not the case. If I were you I would probably consult with a second dentist. (I would opt for silver fillings for myself over white fillings).
Amalgam (silver) fillings last considerably longer than composite (white) fillings. Amalgam fillings can last 30 or more years whereas composite fillings usually need to be redone approximately every 10-20 years.
Composite fillings are done primarily for two reasons:
2. They mechanically bond to tooth structure so the cavity preparation can often be more conservative (smaller).
Composite fillings are extremely technique sensitive, meaning that the dentist must keep the area completely dry, if even a little moisture gets on the filling it will severely compromise the longevity.
In summary, in most cases amalgam (silver) would be the preferred restorative material as they are stronger and last longer and are recommended for people who have high cavity risk.
From what you are telling us it seems like silver fillings would be a good option for you, maybe try to find out more specifically why your dentist recommends white fillings in your case.July 8, 2013 1:12 am at 1:12 am in reply to: Is it proper for an adult to drink from a water fountain? #964783

You are the only one I know of in this situation.
No, it happens to me too! Whenever I drink cholov stam my left ankle swells. (Except when I eat Haagen Dazs ice cream). It’s soooo weird.
Health, aren’t you a nurse or something? So it doesn’t really matter for your business, more I guess for the doctor you work under.

Maybe I’m missing something? What’s this all about? Isn’t the mitzvohs of Purim supposed to bring us closer to one another, more Ahavas Yisroel? Isn’t that the theme of the day – Ahavas Hashem and Ahavas Yisroel? Why all the criticism, snide remarks, bitter feelings about this most wonderful day?
Like it says in seforim, the truly fortunate understand it’s a day to be totally giving. Giving to a fellow Jew, giving to HaShem. A one day opportunity to bring simchah and pure nachas to the Creator by being so benevolent and compassionate to His children. This thought alone should be enough to dispel any personal negative feelings.
Purim is all about giving, not getting.
Because it was a purim joke. (Although I do actually prefer to get packaged goods than homemade junk). But I appreciate the mishloach manos either way. Thank you.
“That was an excellent troll you posted.”
Thank you very much! It’s always good to be appreciated.
Troll, thou art aptly named.
I don’t understand.
My rov holds you only have to filter if there are copepods in the water but not if there aren’t any.
Also, that Gemara proves my point. If you are supposed to give shalach manos for free like some of you are suggesting, why did they have to exchange the shalach manos?
As for home made food, surely a talmid chacham like you who has it all figured out is aware of the gemara that tells us of the 2 amoraim who exchanged seudos with each other to be yotze mishloach manos. Unless of course you are learning pshat that they exchanged takeout?
Back in the day they only had bad food.
Tro11 that is like saying to Hashem ” ok ill only give X amount of tzedaka if I know for sure you will be giving it back to me 3 fold next week”.
Well I am sick and tired of people trying to rip me off.
Where I come from too. But I won’t give them a good shalach manos in return.
Everyone feels so entitled
Nobody feels entitled. I have absolutely no problem if someone doesn’t want to give me shalach manos. But I do ask that you tell me that before I give you my shalach manos (I gave shalach manos to a few people this year who didn’t pay me back shalach manos).
I also ask that if you are serving homemade food in your shalach manos please also let me know before I give you my shalach manos. Thank you.
Mishloach Manos is supposed to be something that can be used for a seudah.
Exactly!! That why you’re not supposed to use home made food!
(I didn’t think so many people would agree with me)
And here’s the point. How many of you would rather eat your wife’s (or your own if you are the woman) home cooked meal over some good greasy take out food? That’s what I thought. So why do you suppose I would want to eat your wife’s (or your own if you are the woman) “delicious” (cough cough) food.
If any of you are planning to give me mishloach manos next year I like dipsy doodles, chocolate bars, store baked rugalach, store baked brownies, and factory produced candy. Thank you and a freilichen purim.
I don’t understand what you are saying. You don’t pay for it, I do. But wouldn’t you just prefer the money? That’s exactly what I am saying. Just give me the money instead of your leftover dinner.
And if I go grocery shopping for you, you should be appreciative especially since you don’t have to throw it out as soon as I deliver it.
And woudn’t you prefer a box of Lieber’s wafer rolls and a chocolate bar to some cold pea soup?
Yeah I appreciate it more also. But they are just being cheap. And nobody eats it, so why waste all the time and energy?
And one person didn’t even give me any mishloach manos in return – the ingrate (he said he didn’t have any). And my Rosh Yeshiva didn’t give me one either but I am mochel him (he can’t give everybody).
But I am sure you can understand my frustrations when I try to give a thoughtful mishloach manos, and one after another all I get in return is some smashed homemade chocolate cake that is headed straight to the waste receptacle.
I liked the Grey Poupon but next time please hold the sandwich.
Next year I will have to give to better people.
DY, well you are definitely not increasing any friendships by pawning off a lousy salami sandwich on me.
They are not doing it to please others, they are doing it to save money. Which is fine. But then please let me know before I give you my mishloach manos, so that I can give it to someone else who will reciprocate with something decent.
DaasYochid, how suddenly you turned from a gentleman to one of us.
yeshivaworlder great minds think alike! Thats exactly what i do because I am a mentch. I smile and say thank you. I hold myself back from throwing it back in the giver’s face. It’s especially difficult when I just gave you a delicious bag of Dipsy Doodles and some tasty candy, and I receive in return an oat kugel that resembles cement. When I get home I simply transfer the contents of your grotesque mishloach manos to the nearest waste basket. As I am sure many of you do. Or I simply feed it to my kids.
Maybe people are misunderstanding my point. I understand that you are cheap and don’t want to spend money on edible food, but I pity you for standing over a hot oven for hours on end cooking (insert noun here) that will end up in various waste baskets throughout your respective neighborhood. You might well serve it to us uncooked, it will save you the effort.
I give you a nice thoughtful mishloach manos, and all i get back is a lousy, inedible chocolate mousse. Please don’t give me last night’s dinner either. I got one of those.
If you know how to play chords on guitar playing chords on piano is very easy. And the keys are in order so playing melody is easy too. That’s how I learned how to play piano.
Dont feel bad, whenever I post, nobody responds to my comments and everybody calls me a troll. I don’t know why. I have already explained that my SN is tro eleven,not troll. I guess some people can’t differentiate between a 1and an L. Oh we11.
I had sushistamps! He made me give them to him! And no, the sushi wasn’t even good. But I forced myself to eat it because I had paid him off. And the wasabi had a bluish-green spot. Not sure if it was mold, but I didn’t eat it.
Health, how did you get blocked? I thought one had to be a seriuosly official jerk to get blocked?
So what’s your question? jk
What, no one has any questions for me? You people know everything?!
Nitpicker, there is variation. Commonly, they enter together at the major papilla, but they can also enter separately, or one can enter the other before they enter the duodenum.
They’re okay – I don’t think I would buy them, but they might be helpful if you want to get a head start and have the patience to sit through them.
Yeah definitely get Netter’s Atlas – you will definitely need it.
toomuch00- I don’t believe the purkinje fibers in the heart are made of cells called purkinje cells. You are probably referring to the purkinje cells in the cerebellar cortex.
While I’ve got you here – what’s a good book to study anatomy before med school? I’m in my gap year right now, and I would like to get a head-start before med school.
Well the textbook I used was Moore’s Clinically Oriented Anatomy, which is a good book, but I don’t know if you should get it yet if you might use a different textbook in your school.
But doesn’t phosphoglucomutase convert glucose-1-phosphate to glucose-6-phosphate? Or am I mistaking that with another enzyme?
Yes, that is correct.
Whoops! Complete misunderstanding. Simple answer – glycogen phosphorylase.
Nah, that’s the first enzyme. Answer is phosphoglucomutase in the muscle, and glucose-6-phosphatase in the liver.
Don’t worry, you’ll learn all this in medical school, if that’s what you’re studying for. 🙂
I’m assuming you mean “glycolysis” 🙂
Haha no I mean glycogenolysis (the conversion of glycogen to glucose). If you want, I can take over this thread for you.
Which is the last enzyme involved in glycogenolysis?
chocandpatience – thanks for backing me up. People are so quick to judge.
What and where is the lexicogal nerve?
I haven’t heard of such a nerve. If you have a serious question, I’d be happy to answer. No need to thank me, no problem at all.
It’s called Lindberg-Comstock syndrome – it is caused when the tendons of your first and second phalanges are abnormally connected. It is not bad that you have it, it just means you are abnormal.
Where does the opthalamic artery pass to exit the skull
That’s actually a good question and one that confuses people. The opthalmic artery does not run with the opthalmic vein, so don’t get confused. The artery runs together with the opthalmic nerve (Cranial nerve II), through the optic canal. In contrast, the opthalmic vein travels through the superior orbital fissure.
do you mean anatomy that is gross/disgusting or you are a buki in anatomy of the human body?
Some people may find it gross, but I mean anatomy of the human body.
I don’t think this is a good idea.
