Hello and thank you for your advice. I just had a dental check up and cleaning. My composite fillings are decades old and several need to be replaced. Currently there is no new decay but the fillings are possibly leaking. I had my amalgam fillings replaced decades ago with these very composites due to the fact I was suffering tremendously with fibromyalgia and it was suggested that perhaps many of my then symptoms could be from the alalgam. I seem to be an extremely sensitive person. I also this spring had an extensive patch test done by an allergist. The results were that I am allergic to Ethyl Acrylates among other substances. When I mentioned this to the new dentist wanting to replace my worn fillings his response was" Well, you have a mouth full of them and it hasn't been an issue". Or has it? I have chronic pain through out my body, headaches, muscle and joint pain, insomnia, irritable bowel, the list is quite long. My appointments begin next week to replace several fillings and I don't know what options I have?
I take my dental health very seriously. I used to work both for a general dentist as well as an oral surgeon. The hygienist I just saw commented that it looked like I had just had a cleaning before she even got started. Knowing these fillings are failing of course I want to tend to them asap but I also don't want to be made sick because of my allergy to acrylates.
Please give me your opinion and advice. Thank you very much!
