ABSTRACT
The articles presents two papers that contributed to a debate at a meeting of the New York Academy of Dentistry in New York City on November 24, 1925 concerning the advantages of amalgam over gold inlay for the restoration of tooth structure in posterior teeth. William R. Pond argues for the superiority of amalgam as a filling material for dental caries in certain cases, while lamenting the general lack of proper technique by dentists who use amalgam. Herny W. Gillett counters with an argument supporting the advantages of gold inlay and outlines the specific cases suitable for gold in tooth restorations.
