With the increased use of gloves and other personal protection equipment in recent years, many people have been found to be allergic to latex. Latex allergies can cause:

  • Hives
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dry Skin
  • Respiratory (breathing) problems
  • Tingling sensations
  • Nausea

You may be at risk for latex allergies if you have spina bifida, are often exposed to latex products, or have undergone several surgeries. If you are allergic or vulnerable to latex, please let our dental office know before your dental treatment. Also remember to counsel with your physician to discover how best to treat your latex allergy.
