BIOCOMP LABORATORIES

Dedicated to the investigation of dental material reactivity.

BIOCOMPATIBILITY TESTING & DENTAL TOXICITY

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

DENTAL TOXICITY

Dental toxicity can occur when materials placed in a patient’s mouth cause that person’s immune system to react.

METALLIC MATERIALS

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

Proper testing can help prevent the placement of potentially toxic materials in a patient’s mouth.

IMMUNE REACTIVITY

The human immune system is one of many methods that the body has to protect itself from harm. It works by recognizing substances that do not belong in the body and removing them…

HOW TO AVOID DENTAL TOXICITY

Serum Biocompatibility testing was developed to determine how much of an immune reaction a particular client will have to any given material. A blood sample is drawn and spun on a centrifuge in order to separate the blood cells from the blood serum…
