Allergies Sometimes Affect Your Teeth
Posted on 9/15/2019 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Allergies affect millions of people, and they can be a nuisance to life-threatening depending on the circumstance. One thing that people with allergies don't often consider is how that allergy might affect their teeth. By better understanding how seasonal and food allergies might impact your oral health, you can take the steps needed to protect yourself. Seasonal AllergiesDuring the spring and summer months, many people suffer from seasonal allergies. Sinus pain is a common complaint, and because the maxillary sinuses are located right around the mouth, you may actually feel it in your teeth. When pressure builds up in the sinuses it can push down into the upper molars. You might feel tooth pain including sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures. Seasonal allergies can also lead to problems with dry mouth. When your nose is stuffy, you will likely breath through your mouth, drying it out. The antihistamines that you take to try and feel better may also lead to dry mouth – a condition that could increase your risk of gum disease, bad breath, and cavities. Food AllergiesFood allergies are a dangerous immune response to food-based allergens, and they can also have an effect on the teeth. Certain dental products contain food ingredients that may trigger allergic reactions, including peanuts, egg protein, milk protein, and pine nuts. Other dental products may contain Recaldent, a strengthening substance that commonly causes reactions. People who suffer from food allergies need to be careful when purchasing toothpaste, dental cements, fluoride, and polishing paste. To protect yourself, stay away from allergens as best as possible, keep yourself hydrated, and maintain a good oral hygiene routine. You should also keep up with your regular dental cleanings and appointments, and that is where we can help.
