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 components include both amalgam materials & casting alloys. Amalgams are used as filling materials.
Composite materials, commonly known as “white fillings,” are one type of dental material that is quickly gaining popularity.
Porcelain & ceramic materials are popular dental restoratives because they look & feel very much like real teeth.
