Compatibility Test for Dental Materials
Our holistic dental clinic believes that whatever dental treatment is performed must be biocompatible with the whole body and must not compromise your general health and well-being. For this purpose, we utilize EDS (Electrodermal Screening) and EAV (Electro Acupuncture–Voll) through collaboration with our biological doctors.
Electrodermal Screening (EDS) or Electroaccupuncture according to Voll (EAV)
EDS offers a quick, non-invasive method of screening for health imbalances. It should be clearly understood that EDS is not a “standard medical procedure,” and is not accepted as a diagnostic test for determining a specific disease or medical condition. It is, however, an energetic evaluation of an individual and provides an invaluable general assessment of a patient’s state of health. It has also proven to be a powerful tool for remedy and dental material selection, as well as for evaluating tooth stresses and jaw infections.
EDS utilizes the body’s Accupuncture Meridians or the “energetic system” as a means of communicating with the body. This energetic system is a network of communication pathways in touch with even the smallest corner of your body. By indirectly measuring this energetic system, EDS can evaluate the functional condition and general health of the entire body, including determining the presence or absence of parasites, bacteria, fungi, viruses, and toxins.
EDS or EAV is an innovative testing method that has been used for over 60 years. It is used widely throughout Europe by over 25,000 medical practitioners, and is gaining acceptance in the United States.
EDS is not meant to be a replacement for the other patient evaluation methods, but rather functions as a complementary means of information gathering. In the final analysis, the more information we have about a patient’s condition, the greater success we can hope to achieve with the treatment recommended.
Blood Serum Biocompatibility or Reactivity Test
Blood Serum Biocompatibility or Reactivity Test may also be recommended. This test objectively measures the degree of responsiveness between one person’s serum and the separate components of a commercial dental product. It indicates what materials maybe suitable for the patient to use in the restorative aspect of dental treatment.
