Dental Material Testing

 

Biocompatible Dental Materials 

In dentistry today there are over 2,000 dental materials in use across 16,000+ branded dental products and knowing how each material reacts within a patient's body is paramount to maintaining optimal health, ensuring longevity of dental restorations and reducing adverse reactions.The use of different metals, compounds, chemicals, and products in dentistry can pose a serious and severe immune system challenge if patients are reactive to them. 

 

Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT)  CMRT is a blood test that goes through a laboratory screening process used to help identify existing sensitivity problems to various chemical groups in an individual patient. At Dental Solutions NHB we use this form of testing with patients who are known to be very chemically sensitive. 

 

MELISA® (Memory Lymphocyte Immunostimulation Assay) Test  MELISA is an acronym for Memory Lymphocyte Immunostimulation Assay, also known as a “delayed hypersensitivity” blood test. This test is used to determine whether titanium dental implants, metal bridges,crowns and over dentures or amalgam fillings are causing allergic reactions within the body. The test works by isolating white blood cells (lymphocytes) from whole blood and testing them against allergens chosen according to the patient’s situation, including existing dental restorations alongside dental and occupational history. 

Doctors Data This is a hair test used to determine the degree of mercury disruption for those patients who exhibit mercury toxicity symptoms and whose medical history suggests they may be experiencing mercury exposure (from amalgams) and high mercury levels in their body. The Doctors Data lab test looks at minerals in a person's body, including those considered nutrients that essential for the proper functioning of the body, for instance macronutrients such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and zinc, and trace minerals including selenium, iodine, boron and molybdenum.
