Perhaps: I wish that i could give you a definite answer. There are so many possibilities. Although you gave us some good information, without knowing exactly what was done and used from the dentist's perspective, it could be an allergic reaction or a combination of factors. You should notify the dentist and he\she will be able to give you the best answer and advice going forward for the future.

Allergies likely: Latex is the most common contact allergen in the dental office. Did you have a dental dam placed? These are often latex, also the providers gloves could be latex.

If the crown/cap placed was made of porcelain over metal, the metal could have nickel in it that is causing a reaction as well. If you have a metal allergy, you may want to see what the crown was made from.

Latex: Probably a latex allergy, but possibly a metal allergy depending on type of crown.

Allergic reaction: You had an allergic reaction. There are many materials associated with the visit. I think the best is to see an allergist.

A 38-year-old female asked:

I am 38 f obese with fatty liver. I have lost 42 lbs since march . My hair is falling out. Could this be a sign of cirrhosis?

Probably not: Cirrhosis is not usually associated with hair loss.Any time there is a rapid reduction in weight or any kind of illness then we can see hair loss increase for several months. This type of hair loss comes back so not to worry. Good luck on your weight loss.
