BIOCOMPATIBILITY TESTING

Biocompatilbilty testing is a process in which we take a blood sample and have you tested for all materials used in dentistry to see what materials are best suited for you. In the ever expanding filed of specialized dentists, a Biologic dentist is somewhat of a specialist in this field. As an Integrative practitioner, we look into the materials that are most commonly compatible to most patients.  We only use biocompatibility testing for the rare patient who is requesting to be tested for a specific reason.
