DENTAL MATERIALS ARE NOT "ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL"

ABOUT dental toxicity

Dental toxicity can occur when foreign materials are placed in a patient’s mouth – this can cause the immune system to react and “reject” the restoration.

Why biocompatibility Testing

Biocompatibility testing allows patients and practitioners to learn about and avoid dental toxicity by using the Least Reactive materials in the mouth. 

COMMONLY USED DENTAL MATERIALS

METALLIC MATERIALS

Metallic components include both amalgam materials & casting alloys. Amalgams are used as filling materials.

COMPOSITE MATERIALS

Composite materials, commonly known as “white fillings,” are one type of dental material that is quickly gaining popularity. 

CERAMIC MATERIALS

Porcelain & ceramic materials are popular dental restoratives because they look & feel very much like real teeth.
