Many people have allergies to dust and pollen. Some people have specific allergies to certain medications or materials. You will be asked about any specific allergies you may have on your new-patient questionnaire. Be sure to let us know prior to treatment if you have allergies to any of the following:
Allergies to Medications
If you have ever had an allergic reaction to any medication, including dental anesthetics, please let us know. If you can’t remember the name of the medication, we can contact the health care provider that used or prescribed the medication to get the name. We can utilize laser anesthesia in case of allergies to anesthetics. There are also alternate drugs that can be prescribed in case of allergies to oral antibiotics or analgesics (pain relievers).
Allergies to Materials
If you are allergic to Latex, please notify us prior to treatment and we will be happy to use vinyl gloves instead. If you have any other allergies we should be aware of, please let us know so we can provide a comfortable environment for you.
