Bio-Compatability Testing

In dentistry today there are over 5,000 materials used in the restoration of the teeth and oral cavity.  Over the last 25 years the number of people in the United States with allergies and auto immune disorders has been steadily on the rise.  For some people their auto immune problems have been linked to mercury in dental fillings and nickel and beryllium in metals used for crowns.  The immune compromised and allergy prone person can’t be too careful about what they come in contact with.

We use the BioComp Labs Compatibility test developed by Dr. Hal Huggins to test for sensitivity to dental materials.  TheBioComp Labs test is an easy test where a tube of blood drawn at a medical lab then sent to the testing center in Colorado where the blood is tested for IGE and IGA antibody compatibility to over 5,000 dental materials.  This assures that the dentist is using the most bio compatible materials for that patient.
