The release of substances from within commercially available composites, adhesives and metallic dental materials has been proven by scientific studies. As a result, these substances can
be metabolized by the body which can then display toxic effects.
In cooperation with clinics and institutes at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the Technical University of Munich and the Helmholtz Zentrum in Neuherberg, Munich, an allergy testing procedure has been developed. With the help of this procedure, possible allergies to substances within dental materials can be detected.
Patients with known or proven allergies to such substances should not receive dental material which can release these substances into the body.
Following an individual allergy test we are able to select the most compatible dental material for an upcoming dental restoration.
- What is a compatible dental material?
- How do I obtain the most compatible dental material as a patient?
- Can the dental material be responsible for other problems in my body?
We can answer all of these questions for you in detail in our practice.
