Patients who need restorations may want to speak to Dr. Michaela McKenzie in the Atlanta, GA area who offers Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing to ensure patients are not sensitive or allergic to certain chemicals and compounds used in dentistry. This test checks to see if patients are sensitivity to over 16,000 currently used dental products and almost 100 chemicals.
This can ensure their health and wellbeing whenever dental treatments are performed.The Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing is a step taken before procedures are done to find out if certain materials and chemicals are biocompatible with an individual’s body before performing specific treatments in the dental office. Also referred to as CMRT, this testing is done whenever appropriate.CMRT is done using a blood draw that is tested against many chemicals and compounds to determine how one’s body will react.
Patients do not need to fast before their blood draw, nor do they need to stop taking any particular medications. However, certain cortical-steroid medications and immunosuppressive medications may affect results, so patients should discuss this with the doctor prior to having the testing completed. The results of the CMRT are reported typically within a few days and they can provide the information needed to help patients with their restorative care effectively.Not all dentists use Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing, but Dr. Michaela McKenzie highly recommends it for patients who have chemical sensitivities, as it gives her a full picture of what one’s body will tolerate when it comes to repairing and restoring the smile.
Knowing how a patient’s body tolerates certain chemicals and compounds can be invaluable in providing optimum dental health care.People in and around the Atlanta, GA community are welcome to contact Dr. Michaela McKenzie of Dazzling Smiles to learn about the Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing and find out how they can benefit from it.
