Material Reactivity Testing

It would be good to know if you were allergic to something before something major is done, right?  Well… why do a lot of dentists start putting things in your mouth that you can be allergic to?

Why don’t we, the patient, ever ask?  Why don’t the dentists every talk about it?

I know I’m asking a lot of questions without giving answers.

The short answer is, most dentists don’t know about it or they are too busy to give you options or they don’t know other options.

Here’s an example.  If you’ve ever worn earrings, you may have been told that you may become allergic to some of the metal earrings that have nickel in them.

The same goes for dental work.  Many dentists are placing dental crowns that contains metals to which you may be come severely allergic to…. thereby affecting you in more ways than one.

That’s why we at the Center For Natural Dentistry do Material Reactivity Testing conducted by the Clifford Consulting and Research Inc.

In short, we may feel it is necessary for you to be tested for the materials we will be using in your mouth.  In other words, we’re proactive in our care for you as we don’t want to cause more harm than good… something other dentists fail to do.

Most dentists recommend repairing teeth and gums, very few of them actually make sure what they put in your mouth is not going to be compatible with your body.
