New denture soft liner allergic reaction: I have new upper and lower dentures. I got the uppers first and was adjusting without any real problems.
But when the dentist put in a soft liner, I began to have several issues such as tingling, swelling, dry mouth, bitter and metalic taste.
I suspected a possible latex allergy related to the soft liners, but the dentist didn't think so. Now both plates have the soft liners, and I continue to have these issues. ...Visitor from TX
It sounds like your soft tissues may be reacting to certain compounds used in the manufacture of the soft liner.
Just because a dental product claims to not cause allergic reactions, there is ALWAYS a small percentage of the general population that will have allergic reactions.
Although uncommon, patients have been known to have reactions to gold crowns, titanium, dental cements, bridgework, partials, veneers, bonding products and even certain "allergy free" filling materials.
Get the ingredients lists of the products used and consult with an allergist or toxicologist.
