Choose the Best Option to Fit Your Oral and Whole-Body Terrain
When facing the challenges of tooth loss, it’s crucial to make an informed decision regarding the best approach to restore oral function. While many practices focus solely on a patient’s appearance and budget, our approach to restoration dentistry in Coral Springs, FL is rooted in scientific knowledge. Extensive research has revealed that certain patients may experience unexplained failures and symptoms after receiving restorations. To eliminate uncertainty, we offer biocompatibility testing, a laboratory screening process that analyzes an individual’s unique sensitivities to commonly used dental and orthopedic materials.
By conducting this testing prior to treatment, our biological dentist, Dr. Maya Georges Assi, can avoid using materials that may trigger adverse reactions in your serum reactivity and immune system. The testing covers a wide range of dental materials, categorized into tiers based on reactivity levels, allowing us to select the least reactive materials for your specific needs. This sophisticated approach ensures personalized treatment and minimizes the risk of toxicity, resulting in a restored smile that is both functional and biocompatible.
The Importance of Performing Biocompatibility Testing
At Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center, we prioritize the use of biocompatibility testing to ensure safer and personalized treatment options for our patients. To assess individual sensitivities, we partner with Biocomp Labs where a blood sample is processed in a centrifuge to separate the serum, which contains crucial antibodies and blood proteins necessary for testing.
By mixing the serum with specific chemical components found in dental materials, we can observe any protein fallout reactions that indicate reactivity. This data informs our dentists about the materials that may cause adverse reactions in your body, allowing us to select non-toxic, safer, and more natural-looking options for your dental restorations. Our goal is to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible while providing minimally invasive and biocompatible treatment, ensuring optimal oral health and a beautiful smile.
Your oral microbiome plays a significant role in your heart, brain, digestive, and immune health. Harmful bacteria in your mouth can spread and cause damage to other parts of your body, leading to increased risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. By testing for sensitivities to dental materials, and improving your oral health through your oral microbiome, you can mitigate these risks and enhance your overall well-being.
Our holistic approach at Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center focuses on retraining your biology to achieve optimal oral health at the biological level. Custom recommendations, curated by our team, are based on thorough research and vetting. A balanced oral microbiome is the foundation of good oral health, and by making small adjustments to your diet, hygiene, and oral products, tailored to your unique biology, you can achieve improved oral health and overall wellness.
