Consider the biocompatibility test for dental materials to avoid dental toxicity
When it comes to restoring the smile, dentists often rely on dental restorations to address changes that may have occurred due to decayed, diseased, or lost teeth. Drs. Mamta Dalwani, Menachem Oren, and Chela Altman of the Center for Holistic Dentistry in Los Angeles, California, are pleased to offer holistic and biocompatible dentistry to ensure your health and wellness–even when placing dental implants or metal-free fillings.
How does the biocompatibility test for dental materials work?
By performing a biocompatibility test for dental materials, our dental team can ensure we avoid dental toxicity by using the least reactive materials. Common materials used in dentistry include ceramic, porcelain, composite, and metallic, and by learning about dental toxicity based on the patient’s unique body, we can provide customized care for your smile!
The process of biocompatibility testing for dental materials starts with a blood draw. A blood serum specimen is collected from the patient at the dental office and sent out to a testing facility. The sample is then tested, and a completed report is sent to the dentists at the Center for Holistic Dentistry for further review. Once the test results have been obtained, we can ensure that future treatments use this information to provide the best possible care at our holistic dental office. We want to make sure that every treatment is beneficial to the body, not harmful.
Let us take the guesswork out of determining the best materials for you!
Dental restorations often require manmade materials to restore the smile, and there are many ways in which some of these materials may be reactive in a patient. By focusing on biocompatible dentistry to avoid dental toxicity, we can ensure your treatment is designed for you and your needs. If you want to learn more about biocompatibility tests for dental materials, we encourage you to call our Center for Holistic Dentistry team.
