Dental Alginate / Molding Materials

Recommended Posts

I had a bad reaction this week.

Trying to figure out what it was - one of the culprits could be the dental molds I had made this week -- they use this flavored yellow molding material (alginate?) -- and I am sure I managed to not get it all out of my mouth and probably swallowed some.

I didn't even think of it at the time.

Anyone here with any experience with this?

The best thing you can do is to ask your dentist to call and find out if it is. Some companies will allow you to call yourself so you can get the name of the material and the company to find out. It is quite possible for the mold material to have gluten ingredients in the flavors and you don't really have to swallow it, all it has to do is come into contact with the mucous membranes in your mouth.

When I was getting crowns done my dentist checked everything, she even checked the cotton balls before she would stick them in my mouth, I kid you not. That one dentist, unfortunately she moved so I can't see her any more, she was the only one since I have been diagnosed that did not gluten me while I was in the chair.

On one hand it will actually be a relief if this is the culprit, and not anything else I ate.
