Development in dentistry is characterized by an increasing number of new prosthetic materials. However, these materials interact with the tissues, producing changes in both the surrounding materials and tissues. They release substances into the oral environment to a varying degree. The aim of this review is to know the importance of biocompatibility of various dental materials used and the various spectra of biocompatibility test routinely practiced test. Articles are searched from the English literature available so far from the PubMed database, Google search and Science Direct from 1950 - 2017. Dental practice requires contact with restorative and auxiliary dental materials of different composition. The purpose of this article is to bring a general awareness to the dentist and other dental personnel and laboratory technicians about the biocompatibility of dental materials as leakage and transfer of potentially allergenic components of the materials carry the risk of hypersensitivity reactions.
