I have had a crown in my mouth for the last year that has been causing me a lot of problems.
My dentist and I decided that I am possibly allergic to the metals in the crown.
Last week she (my dentist) cut it out of my mouth and put in a temporary crown with a temporary adhesive while I wait for my new metal free crown.
All the allergic symptoms I was having magically disappeared (numbing in the left side of face, horrible taste, stuffed up left side sinus, pain in left eye) . Problem solved, so I thought.
The temporary fell out yesterday, so I returned to the dentist and they reinstalled it with a stronger adhesive. It was a powder that was mixed. It was referred to by it’s initials. I think it began with the letter “i”.
All the symptoms I had are back full force. Is it possible that I am allergic to the adhesive?
