Biocompatible dentistry: A healthy alternative in Beverly Hills, CA

Biologic dentistry may sound like a new trend. In truth, biocompatible dentistry has roots in ancient Ayurvedic medicine, and it encompasses many traditional dental treatments. However, this unconventional dentistry approach strives to improve whole body wellness as well as oral health. Patients in the Beverly Hills, CA area have access to forward-thinking healthcare at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills.

The biocompatible dentist

Holistic dentistry acknowledges that everything that goes on in the mouth affects the rest of the body. The biocompatible dentist takes that concept a step further, recognizing that materials used in conventional dental procedures can have a dire impact on the integrity of the oral cavity and overall wellness. The team at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills uses the safest available materials and techniques for your unique physiology.

Biocompatible testing

Thousands of dental restoration materials are available to dentists. Each has the potential to cause an immune system reaction in the patient’s body. Only a small percentage of dentists are educated in biocompatibility testing.

Our dentists use serum compatibility testing to determine how your body would react to a variety of materials. The process is simple yet elegant:
  • A small sample of your blood is drawn.
  • It is spun on a centrifuge to separate components.
  • The serum, containing blood proteins and free-floating antibodies, is collected.
  • Individual chemical components found in dental materials are mixed with a tiny bit of serum.
  • If antibodies in the serum bind to a chemical, the mixture becomes cloudy, indicating an immune system reaction. The opacity of the mixture is measured with a light densitometer.
  • Chemicals are classified as highly, moderately, or least reactive.
  • Only materials containing least reactive chemicals are selected for your dental treatment.
