Use of Cat 3 carcinogens
I wanted to have an open discussion about the use of class 3 carcinogens in implants.
Hopefully this can be constructive...
The basis for the discussion is that the following class 3 carcinogens are already used in popular resins for the dental industry:
If the dentist doesn't mind sticking it in my mouth, how much should I care sticking it in my arm?
How different is it being in my mouth 24/7 to being under my skin 24/7?
Should we generalize and reject anything not specifically class 4?
Do we even reject Cat 4?
Dental resins are designed to be hard, crush resistant and not subject to hydrolytic degradation. In theory they would be good materials to test with for implanting, but what are the risks involved?
