Regular readers and visitors, happy to welcome you! For certain reasons, we sometimes need to change the natural teeth to dentures. In modern time this procedure is relatively inexpensive, thus demand.
It would seem that replace natural teeth artificial and don’t know more problems. But, unfortunately, the problems after such an operation can occur, and more serious than the trip to the dentist.
Allergy to dentures — a terrible thing can ruin not only the aesthetics of the mouth, but also your health. I propose to study this type of Allergy in detail and determine what dental restorations can provoke negative reaction from organism.
The reasons for rejection by the body dentures
Negative reaction after the installation of artificial teeth can affect anyone, regardless of gender and age. Provoke not the procedure itself, and the materials from which are made artificial replacements of teeth.
Intolerance can cause anything: metal, plastic, drugs used during the operation, etc. please see list of materials potentially dangerous to hypersensitive people.
The dentures provokes hypersensitivity?
Are you curious about what materials are used in dentistry, can cause allergic? Then here is a small list of hazardous constituents dentures.
Metals — Nickel, cobalt, copper, chromium, and metal alloys. These are the most common stimuli that often provoke allergic disorders.
Metals are used for attaching the prosthesis to the jaw. They are present in the construction of removable and permanent dentures, and also in the cheap crowns.
The combination of different metals that causes «galvanic syndrome». If the mouth are different metals at the same time, it may be pseudoallergy due to the fact that they do not contact with each other.
Between different metals, galvanic currents arise that are harmful to humans as it leads to sleep disorders, severe salivation, poisoning.
Plastic — exclusively Monomeric. Allergic intolerance to plastics-monomers appears infrequently, but still. In addition, the disorder can provoke acrylic and other dyes used for the restoration of dentures.

- dentures, Quadrotti — nylon made from soft plastics.

Allergy treatment: how is the reaction on the prosthesis in the oral cavity?
The body can tell us about intolerance at any time — half an hour after the installation of artificial teeth, a day or a month later. In any case, you will have to immediately remove the stimulus.
If the dentures are removable, remove them immediately and rinse the mouth thoroughly with plain water. If persistent, contact the clinic in which you set them.
