What are Dental and Orthopedic Reagents?
Dental and orthopedic reagents are the chemicals, metals, and other substances used during dental or orthopedic treatments. While many patients undergo these procedures with no complications, others begin to show symptoms of an allergic reaction to the dental and orthopedic reagents used during treatment.
Upon coming into contact with a dental or orthopedic reagent that an individual is allergic to, that individual experiences an inflammatory response characterized by itchy skin, hives, and redness. In severe cases, these reagents may cause the patient to go into anaphylactic shock. Some of the most common procedures that reveal an allergy to dental or orthopedic reagents include the implantation of dental fillings, orthopedic hardware, and pacemakers.
