Sorry, no etymologies found.
A third product, called "calcidum oxychlorid," has been found by Caro and Saulmann to be an impure 35 per cent. solution of calcium chloride.
One cavity in my mouth was filled with gold, decay occurred, the filling was removed; cavity filled with oxychlorid, which produced pain; filling removed; cavity filled with gutta-percha, still experienced pain; filling removed; cavity filled with tin, and pain ceased in an hour.
Believing that tin could do no worse, but probably would do better, we banished amalgam from the office for the succeeding seven years, using in the place of it tin, oxychlorid, and gutta-percha.
In some mouths also, at this period, the fluids are in such a condition that oxychlorid and oxyphosphate do not last long; for some reason amalgam soon fails, while gutta-percha is quickly worn out on an occlusal surface.
Chloro-percha, gutta-percha, and oxychlorid of zinc are much better for this purpose.
