Sometimes it's better to know now rather than later. Using the Biocomp Compatibility Test, we are able to eliminate potential hazards from the start. You may know that you are sensitive to most anything and everything. So before we just dive in and drill away the problems, allow us to do a simple test to see if the dental materials we use, such as composite, cements, ceramics, or anesthetic causes any problems before we start.

Material Reactivity Testing: It would be good to know if you are allergic to something before something major is done, right? Well… why do a lot of dentists start putting things in your mouth that you can be allergic to?

Why don’t we, the patient, ever ask? Why don’t the dentists every talk about it?

I know I’m asking a lot of questions without giving answers.

The short answer is, most dentists don’t know about it or they are too busy to give you options or they don’t know other options.

Here’s an example. If you’ve ever worn earrings, you may have been told that you may become allergic to some of the metal earrings that have nickel in them. The same goes for dental work. Many dentists are placing dental crowns that contains metals to which you may become severely allergic to…. thereby affecting you in more ways than one.

That’s why we at the Center For Natural Dentistry do Material Reactivity Testing conducted by Biocomp Laboratories, Inc. In short, we may feel it is necessary for you to be tested for the materials we will be using in your mouth. In other words, we’re proactive in our care for you as we don’t want to cause more harm than good… something other dentists fail to do.

Most dentists recommend repairing teeth and gums, very few of them actually make sure what they put in your mouth is not going to be compatible with your body.
