Dental Allergies

Any number of mental acrobatics can be used to convince yourself not to see a dentist. Fear of pain, dislike of the procedures, even sensitivity to the sounds associated with cleanings can all be deterrents. But in some cases, legitimate allergies to common dental supplies and medicines can keep you from getting the oral health care you need.

Common Dental Allergies

Many people suffer from allergies that can interfere with their daily lives. Pollen, mold, and other environmental allergens can cause discomfort seasonally or year round. You won't find mold or pollen inside of a dental office but you may find other common allergens, like:

  • Latex and rubber used in gloves and some dental tools
  • Sulfites used in dental materials
  • Metals like gold, nickel, and mercury used in fillings, bridges, and crowns
  • Fragrances used in dental cements
  • Pain relief allergens

At Colonial Dental Group, we strive to make your experience as safe and comfortable as possible. Using only all-porcelain crowns, offering resin composite fillings, and using latex-free gloves are all methods we employ to ensure your allergies are not aggravated.

If you live in or around Chicago, Illinois, and common allergies have kept you from getting the dental services you need and desire, please contact the experienced dentists at Colonial Dental Group. Our staff will listen closely to your concerns, and make every effort possible to ensure a flare-up free visit.
