Material Biocompatibility Testing
There are thousands of dental materials that have been developed over the years and are used in practice today. Many individuals have sensitivities to certain chemicals and other environmental factors that need to be taken into account before using a specific dental material in their body. The doctors and clinicians at Prescott Dentistry work with an outside consulting lab to perform materials reactivity testing to determine which materials are most biocompatible and biologically suitable for use in your mouth. This serum test involves a simple blood sample to determine which dental materials will be suitable for use based on your individual biochemistry. If chemical or material sensitivities are a concern to you, prior to proceeding with treatment, please ask us to tell you more about material biocompatibility tests.
