Clifford Materials Reactivity Test
In modern society we come in contact with many substances every day. They exist in every facet of our lives including the food we eat, the products we use and the treatments we receive.
Because each of us possesses a unique biochemistry, these substances affect each of us differently and in varying degrees. For some, the effects of certain substances (and their corrosion byproducts) can be toxic and hazardous, and may result in serious health problems. A substance, which causes little or no reaction in one individual, can prove harmful to another.
Since these effects may vary in each of us, it is vital that these factors be considered when choosing dental and other materials for use in the body, especially in patients with special or unique health concerns. Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing provides dentists and physicians with extensive information about their patient’s individual sensitivities so the least offensive materials can be chosen and used in their treatments.
The Clifford Materials Reactivity Test results allow Dr. Davis to quickly determine from an extensive list of materials those, which could be used with the least degree of risk in meeting your needs. The report also lists trade-named products with simple suited/not suited indicators for rapid spot checks of products in question.
Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing is intended as a screen for least offensive and for potentially unsafe materials for use in patients. It is in no way a diagnosis, prognosis or cure of any disease.
