We have no “perfect” dental material. They all have strengths and weaknesses.
Evaluation of the immune status as it relates to dental materials is important, especially if you have allergies, immune disorders, metal sensitivities etc.
Blood serum antibody testing is the method of determining your antibody reactions to the ingredients in dental materials. This test is performed in a laboratory based in Colorado. Blood is drawn, centrifuged, and the clear serum is separated and sent to Colorado for analysis.
A report is returned usually within a week with a detailed description of your specific antibody reactivity to a host of dental materials.
Dental Materials are then chosen based on:
- Their reactivity
- The functional needs of your teeth and mouth
- Cosmetic needs
