Metal-free orthodontic treatments

Metal allergy is quite common and it can cause many difficulties.


How can you recognize metal allergy?

If you have noticed itching and redness around the area where you were wearing metal jewels or accessories you are most likely to have a metal allergy.

We have been treating patients who had metal allergies with outstanding success. Just like other treatments orthodontic procedures can also be carried out with metal-free appliances. At our clinic, we offer different options for patients who are allergic to metals that are used in dentistry.


Other allergies

Generally known allergies are pollen and house dust allergy. We can hear a lot about these allergies but not a lot about metal allergy however many people suffer from it. Initially, we notice the symptoms but we are not sure that they can be allergic reactions.

It is recommended to have a yearly allergy test. Many effects in our everyday lives can cause allergic reactions and it is good to know their origins. Metal allergy tests can be carried out in no time by a dermatologist specialist.


Metals in dentistry that can cause allergic reactions

  • nikkel
  • chrome
  • cobalt
  • silver
  • gold

Amalgam fillings contain metals and mercury as well, therefore they are very dangerous. 

It is recommended to have amalgam fillings replaced to avoid complications and also to correct the aesthetics of your teeth.

Ask for the help of our dentists in the replacement of your amalgam fillings and amalgam emptying courses.


What can you do if you are allergic to metals?

The good news is that there are many metal-free options for conservative and cosmetic dental treatments. We have been doing metal-free treatments for many patients with outstanding success and no allergic reactions.


Metal-free removable orthodontic appliances

Removable appliances are used for minor re-positioning procedures. These appliances are made of plastic or silicone and the patient has to wear them for 22-24 hours a day.


Metal-free fixed braces

In adulthood, we apply porcelain fixed braces that do not contain any metals. For these appliances, we use the appropriate wires considering which type of metal you are allergic to.

We recommend a metal allergy test for every patient who has experienced metal allergic reactions before. If you have attended a metal allergy test before please bring your test results with you to your next appointment.


What can you do if you have a metal allergy but would like to have braces?

  • Call us and book a consultation appointment.
  • Bring your metal allergy test results with you for your consultation appointment.
