This is an examination to establish the extent of leaching of metal from old amalgam fillings, crowns and bridges.
The test is recommended for those who experience different symptoms in the mouth - such as burning or stinging sensation, metal taste, inflammation or ulcers. Other symptoms caused by the old fillings and metal containing works can be fatigue, joint pains, rash, headache, hair loss, dyspepsia, etc. Replacing the old fillings or dental works eliminates the reoccurrence of the symptoms.
The allergy test itself is painless and gives a result instantly. We can test possible allergic reaction to the material used in future prosthetics by gluing a small amount of the material onto the tooth and checking for any reaction after 72 hours.
