Help, I have just started going to a new dentist because I needed a filling replaced
well, I needed a crown and I told them I was allergic to gluten and sulfites several times and they
assured me there was none of that in their products. I found out there are sulfites in the epinephrine
so I had been sick from that for two weeks already and then when I went back for the crown. I explained
the reaction from the sulfites, but of course they just looked at me like I was talking about the weather.
Then I mentioned again that I'm very gluten sensitive and they said there is no gluten in anything. They put
the crown on and I have been sick with sprue for over a week now, I have had this for 11 yrs and haven't
been this sick in 4yrs. I called and told them I was sick with mouth sores which are extremely painful and I
only get when I've been glutened, along with the other reactions including mal-nutrition. gastro-intestinal, etc.
they just told me there was no gluten in the crown or the cement right away, without looking. They don't want
to tell me the cement brand they used and are saying I must have eaten something, I've been eating the
exact same things every day for the past 4yrs so I know I didn't eat anything with gluten. Typically, my
sprue only lasts a couple days but not this time I know it's the dentist and was wondering if anyone knows if
the cement has Gluten and if it will leach into my saliva?? I did not have this reaction from a crown that I had
last year nor did I have it when I had an extraction two yrs ago. Not sure what to do, help!!
