I get asked this question alot because I have 30 years of experience working with sensitive patients and helping them find the safest fillings for their needs. My answer is that everyone is unique and the safest filling material can be different for every patient.
The best way to test is to have a Clifford Materials Reactivity Test and get the report showing the dental products that may be suitable for you and what materials you should avoid. The test uses a sample of your blood and tests it for reactivity to over 15,000 different dental products. www.ccrlab.com
Over the last 30 years I have tested over 300 of my most sensitive patients and have found a few products that are safe for most of my patients. The following are some of the current dental products I use for most of my dental treatment:
Direct resin filling (Bonding) or soft resin fillings: Grandio SO resin with Futurabond U cement (glue) by the VOCO company
Indirect inlay/onlay/crowns or hardened fillings/crowns: IPS emax porcelain or Zirconia cemented on with Futurabond U and Dual cement by Ivoclar/Vivadent.
Temporary fillings: ProTemp Plus material cemented on with Superlon
Impressions: Splash by Den Mat
Anesthetic: Carbocaine 3% plain or Septocaine 4%
There are many other products in Dentistry to choose from and the products are constantly changing and improving. If you want to get tested by the Clifford test ask me for the kit, to have the test performed.
