Toxic Metals Oral-Dental Health Test detail:
The Saliva Toxic Metals Test (oral-dental health) measures 14 toxic metals (see below) potentially stored within the mouth and released before and after the chewing process. It is a useful test in cases where heavy metal toxicity, or sustained toxin release by way of braces, amalgams, fillings or dentures is suspected.
Any toxicity detected is reported no matter where it originates, as long as it is present within the mouth at the time of the sample collection.
Why use this Test?
The test is primarily used for Oral and Dental health. It will detect the presence of toxic metal buildup and then analyse the concentrations of all 14 metal elements. The Toxic Metals Oral Dental Health Test will detect the presence of toxicity from other sources within the body if they are also present in the saliva sample(s) collected. This can be the result of long term use of medication or supplements, and even inadvertent, accidental ingestion.
Test Turn-Around-Time: 8 business days.
Test kit componentry & necessary test request documentation included. Return along with samples using provided Express Satchel. Mail Tracking included.
Test results include tailored advice providing an effective starting point for change. See the Sample Report >

“Heavy metals are relatively scarce in the Earth’s crust but are present in many aspects of modern life. They are used in, for example, golf clubs, cars, antiseptics, self-cleaning ovens, plastics, solar panels, mobile phones, and particle accelerators.” – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
How Can Heavy Metal Toxicity Occur?
Heavy metals are omnipresent elements with both a high atomic weight and a density of at least 5 times than that of water. With vast applications including, but not limited to industrial, domestic, agricultural, medical and technological heavy metals have penetrated the food chain; raising concerns over their potential effects on human health and the environment.
Toxicity level depends on several factors including type of metal, degree of exposure, route of exposure as well as the age, gender, genetics, and nutritional health of the individual.
What are Systemic Toxicants and Human Carcinogens?
Arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury are of public particular health significance. The metallic elements are considered systemic toxicants which are known to cause multiple organ damage at lower amounts of exposure. They are referred to as human carcinogens by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and also the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
