We are well aware of the fact that it is crucial to visit a dentist for a checkup. One should explain the dental problems being faced and their allergies. Although dentists ask about the medical history and allergies. Sometimes allergies related to medicines can put you in a problem and informing about these to the dentist can save your life. You can also opt for an allergy test to know about life-threatening allergic reactions. When an allergy test is positive for a certain dental material then the dentist starts using alternative options.
Medicine Allergies: Sometimes there are certain medicines to which patients are allergic. These medicines may be pain killers. Informing about drug allergies will allow dentists to go for other options to treat patients. Thus it will keep you safe. Furthermore, you should also inform about the supplements, if you are taking any. Any wrong combination of medicines can become life-threatening.
Latex Allergy: Latex also known as rubber is used in many medical products such as gloves, masks, etc. You should inform the dentist about this, as latex-free gloves will be used by the dentist during the procedure. Allergy from latex may result in itchy skin, hives, swelling in the throat, and difficulty in breathing.
Anesthetic Allergy: Sometimes patients can experience a skin reaction, anxiety, or difficulty in breathing because of local anesthesia. Dentists use anesthesia to fill cavities or during root canal treatment. So it’s important to share any past experience of reaction due to anesthetic with the dentist.
Metal Allergy: Sometimes patients have allergies to some sort of metals. So it’s better to inform your dentists as they use dental instruments that are made of metal. The patient may experience dryness, redness, itching, blistering. Furthermore, teeth can also be filled with metals to treat cavities. So ask the dentist to use other materials than metals.
Gluten Allergies: If you are suffering from Celiac disease, i.e. having an allergy to gluten, then you should inform about this your dentist. Then the dentist will use products that are gluten-free. Some polishing paste contains gluten.
