Dental Excellence Integrative Center offers biocompatibility testing to determine if a patient is sensitive to dental materials. Some patients unknowingly have sensitivity to metals, which can be found in jewelry as well as dental materials. Biocompatibility testing helps to determine which materials will work best for patients so an appropriate treatment can be implemented.
Testing for material sensitivity involves a blood test. The test will show materials to which a patient is sensitive, much like an allergy test. The results of the test will help our doctors at Dental Excellence Integrative Center choose a material that is biocompatible for the patient.
Biocompatibility testing is safe and convenient. It can also be a relief for patients who wondered why they were having reactions every time they were at the dentist’s office. To schedule your biocompatibility test, please call us today at (703) 745-5496.
