Question from Sharon
I just had a cavity fixed and I had a reaction to the dental bonding material – mouth got really extremely dry and burning sensation, hard to swallow, one part of my lower lip a little swollen -just from the fumes after she put the bonding agent in my tooth. It will be 3 days tomorrow since the work was done.
I have been using the same materials for several years with a little swallowing problems, but goes away after a day. I took just a little bit of antihistamine last night and woke up with a really dry mouth and sore throat. Very concerned. I see a holistic dentist but they just told me to gargle (??) I have done that a few times, flushed the mouth several times while I was there, brushed my teeth, gums, upper mouth, all over the tongue – still an issue.
Wondering if I might need to have this stuff removed. But not sure what I would put in place of it. I don’t want to go to urgent care, they will just tell me to take antihistamines. I did the dental testing. I am sensitive to everything.
Have you heard about any non-toxic glues/dental materials? Or, what do other people with MCS do or use? Thank you.
Dear readers, I need your help answering this question.
I can research from online materials, however, the best answers come from real experience.
I am fortunate to have not needed cavities filled and other dental work, so I don’t have experience in this area.
But I know many of you have because you have given bits and pieces of information in other comments.
I’d love to put together a really good resource for getting nontoxic dental work done.
If you have knowledge or experience with this, please comment.
