Biocompatibility Testing

About BioComp Laboratories, Inc.

Biocomp's objective is to measure that immune system response on an individual basis using our sophisticated blood serum procedure. The end result is the Biocompatibility test, a comprehensive report that simply states whether the dental materials are Highly Reactive, Moderately Reactive, or Least Reactive. This information allows the individual to learn about and avoid dental toxicity by using as many least reactive materials as possible.

A "Highly Reactive" material can often prove to be a contributing factor in taxing the immune system over time. This condition can open the door to a wide variety of medical problems or worsen medical problems that may already exist. The results of this test work as a consulting tool to help dentists and other medical professionals when choosing materials. Of course it’s up to the doctor to have the final say on what material should be used. Biocompatibility testing is a tool, it’s not an end all be all final choice for dental restorations.
