For the chemically
hypersensitive, there is difficulty finding materials that the
MCS can live with, and finding a dentist that will work with MCS
persons special needs.
Below is a list of
suggestions for you to design your own plan. If you have a clear
plan, it may lend more validity to your special needs.

Performance contacts each manufacturer and get as
many chemicals in the material formula that they can. All
ingredients in a dental product are not listed on the
MSDS sheet, to protect trade secret. Because of this,
there can be a false positive tendency for any blood
testing. But it does help narrow down the list of what to
test. www.peakenergy.com Click on Peak

If yes, then:
Get a sample and put it in your mouth between the
cheek and gum for as long as you can. The Heavy
Metal Bulletin advocates 2 weeks during waking hours.
Another recommendation is to test 2 hours a day for 2 weeks.
Record symptoms, if any, for each material. Make sure to include
cements with your test. Ultra-sensitive persons have the most
difficulty with these materials.

Tips and Information
- Cements. In
Germany, most patients with MCS tolerate the cement by
HARVARD. This might be available in the U.S. as well. It
is useful to include cements with your saliva or cheek
and gum tests.

- Targus crown is 25% stronger with imbedded fibers. Did
not test well/chemically less toxic materials available:
- Perioguard antiseptic rinse (contains
hexachlorephine). Replace with 3% hydrogen peroxide
brushed onto teeth.
- 3M Scotchbond Resin Cement. Best alternative for
cementing crowns is Panavia (Kuraray, Co) which comes in
a kit with etch, primer, activator, catalyst, and ceramic
primer. This is probably the simplest solution.
- Other products which are recommended over 3M are:
- One Step All Bond (Bisco, Inc., Itasco, Il) is also OK
but still needs Panavia or CR Hybrid.
- Vitrebond tests well if pulp capping is needed.
- Other comments:
- Intraoral sandblasting is less toxic than using etchant
If etchant is used, rinse mouth immediately after use to
buffer acid. Avoid polycarboxylate.
