COMMON ALLERGENS USED IN DENTISTRY

* There is a strong link between allergy and toxicity and both affect our immune system in a negative way.  - NOTE:  SEE this Article on the importance of keeping track of the different types of dental materials that are allergens and are being placed in your mouth!    As a result, one might find an answer to their food allergy and food intolerances.  eg.  What chemical properties of the food is causing the problem?  Could it be that the dental materials in the mouth have those same chemical properties and may be a major cause of the problem?
