When you visit Biodental Healing in Newbury Park, you can expect to realize your dental health goals through treatments that favor your biological terrain.
Dr. Villarreal can help you maximize the function, aesthetics, and health of your mouth using biological and biocompatible dental procedures that seek to minimize galvanic stress, immune reactivity, and toxicity. This can be successfully achieved through dental material compatibility testing.
Most of the dental restorative materials available today are developed to work for “most people.” Indeed, most healthy people can withstand a little immune reactivity or toxicity. However, there is also a good number of people who have multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) and cannot tolerate those stresses. Studies suggest that about 25% of the population is in this category, though the vast majority don’t realize it until they suffer unfavorable side effects post-treatment.
Dental Material Tests
Some of the common materials that can induce an allergy include metals like gold, nickel, chromium, cobalt, palladium, and mercury compounds. Other metals can also be toxic under certain circumstances.
Some of the biocompatibility lab tests that may be recommended include:
- Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT) - this blood test is used for very chemically sensitive patients
- Memory Lymphocyte Immunostimulation Assay (MELISA) Test - another blood test used to check sensitivity to titanium dental implants, crowns, dentures, and metal bridges.
- Doctors Data - this hair test may be recommended to establish the level of mercury toxicity for patients who are exposed to mercury
With over 2,000 dental materials available today in use across 15,000+ dental products, it is necessary to know how a recommended treatment material reacts with a patient’s body to ensure optimal health, longevity of the treatment, and low risk of adverse reactions. Since your biochemistry is unique to you, a dental material that works well for another person may not necessarily be right for you.
As a biological dentist, Dr. Villarreal will test any dental materials before proceeding with your treatment to avoid complications. Please visit Biodental Healing in Newbury Park for your consultation or to learn more about biocompatibility testing.
