Biocompatibility Testing

All dental materials have certain side effects or adverse reactions. Some of these reactions are significant, others are not. The objective of a blood compatibility test is to alert both the patient and their holistic dentist to the relative compatibility each dental material has with the patient’s immune system.

    After the patient’s blood is drawn and sent to a biocompatibility lab, a PhD tests the patient’s blood against thousands of different dental materials.  

    Biocompatibility testing is a blood serum test that determines measurement of immunoglobulins and proteins which are capable of reacting with components and corrosion products from dental materials.
Test results are unique for each patient.
     

A report of the test’s findings is sent to the patient and their holistic dentist, and good judgment can be used in picking safer dental materials for the patient.
