The Allergies that Might Make Your Dental Visit a Little Difficult

Posted .

When you visit Dr. Kimberlee J. Karey for a dental cleaning and checkup or even an appointment involving dental treatment, it’s best to discuss a number of matters with her. One of those matters is an allergy to any objects or products we might have at Kimberlee J. Karey, DDS. If you tell us about any allergies related to your appointment, you will have a higher chance of having a positive dental experience. Some common dental allergies include:

Latex: Unfortunately, latex is a dental allergy that can impact your dental visit. This is because there can be latex in your dentist’s gloves, the rubber dams used in treatment, and the X-ray bitewings. However, we can solve this issue if you call our office before your appointment. We will be happy to use alternate products to help you have the best and safest dental appointment possible.

Anesthesia: Many people are allergic to anesthesia. If you’re one of these people, there is no need to worry. We have other options that can help you have a relaxing dental experience all while keeping you safe and free from harm. Just remember to tell your dentist about your allergy so she can make any necessary changes to the treatment plan.

Metals: There are certain metals in dental work that you could be allergic to. Some of those metals can be found in amalgam fillings, retainers, and dentures. It’s important to tell your dentist about the metal allergy you have so she doesn’t fix your smile with a product that could make you sick.
