Dental Bridge Glue

Recommended Posts

I'm at the point where I don't want to deal with it in the dentist's office anymore.

I am having a new bridge procedure (my third one), and I've had to have a temporary bridge put in, taken out, and glued back in several times. The final bridge should be ready next Monday. Although they call it "permanent", they're not as I've had my original two replaced, albeit after 20 years.

I've already been though it with this dentist regarding celiac and teeth cleaning, but forgot to ask if the cement has gluten in it. To futher confuse things, the final glue is different than the temporary stuff.

I don't think I've gotten glutened, but since the final fitting is next Monday I wonder if I should ask about the cement. Once it's in, I'm wondering if glutened glue, if there is such a thing in dentistry, would affect us.

That question never occurred to me. I too, have had several bridges, don't ask why, as well as 10 of my lower teeth capped with a five unit bridge on each side. Those bridges have been removed and replaced with individual crowns.

The process has taken about five years and eventually, implants will be installed where my last 8 unit front upper bridge is.

I have probably swallowed an entire tube of glue over the last years!

I will ask my dentist tomorrow about this.

In the mean time, here is a link to a search which is very interesting: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navc...ten+dental+glue

Hello,

Here are the most common dental cements and statements from the companies used on bridges that I know of that are used in the US. You can print it out and ask your dentist if they use one of them. The gluten-status of other in-office dental products is also listed on my website. (Sorry I can't post it here)

*Bosworth"All our Dental products are Gluten free. " 4/25/07

*Dentsply/Caulk "our products are gluten free." 4/24/07

*3M ESPE Dental"We do not intentionally add gluten in the manufacture of our products. We do not analyze for gluten and therefore, do not make any claims of being gluten-free." 4/19/07

*GlaxoSmithKline"We do not provide a list of gluten free products as formula changes or manufacturing site changes may occur. We ask that consumers call us about specific products to ask this question. As far as Polident tablets are concerned, they are a gluten free product." 4/25/07

*Kerr Corp."All Kerr products are gluten free." 4/24/07

*Premier Dental Products"a plant manager from one of our manufacturing faculties has celiac disease so no gluten ever enters the plant. Our prophy paste, varnish and whitening products do not contain any gluten" 4/23/07

*Septodent"Septodont - Novocol anesthetics have no hidden ingredients. Also, Gluten is not an ingredient in our Anesthetics." 4/24/07

*Zilactin (Blairex Laboratories) "All Zilactin products distributed by Blairex Laboratories do not contain ingredients derived from wheat (glutten), barley, rye, oats, or spelt." 4/23/07

Also, some gloves use oat gum as the powder. But the more commonly used brands use corn starch derived powders.

Good Luck!

Julie

Thanks, this helps greatly - I can take the list to the dentist on my next appointment, or before.

It's too late to do anything about the temporary glue, but it's important to know the status of the final cements.
