Biocompatibility & Testing
If you are concerned about the biocompatibility of the materials used to restore your teeth, we recommend the Clifford Materials Reactivity Test. This test only requires a blood sample, and from that little sample, it can be determined, among the myriad of materials available, which ones are most suitable for you!
Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT) is a laboratory screening process used to help identify existing sensitivity problems to various chemical groups and families of compounds in an individual patient. This process is currently being implemented in the CMRT Dental Test. After a patient's test has been completed, the patient's reactivity test results are compiled in a report. The test currently reports on over 7100 trade-named products and 89 chemical groups and families.
The Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing can be useful for any patient who is preparing for restorative or reconstructive bio-materials placement and who would like to have some additional peace of mind that the materials proposed for use are not likely to induce adverse bio-reactivity. Additionally, there are several groups of patients who might derive special benefits from the added safety of materials reactivity pre-assessment testing.
Some of these groups include:
