Has anyone ever had an allergic reation to braces on their teeth ? The reason I'm asking is because i'm trying to figure out what in the heck is going on with me ! I got braces on my uppper row of teeth. Planning to get the bottom row done in another month or so. Ever since I got the braces on, i've started having strange heart palpatations. This has never happened before and since this started, I've stopped taking all o-t-c allergy meds and everything. I dont drink coffee or pops. I dont smoke. I DO, however, have a very bad case of anxiety disorder. All tests done on my heart are coming back normal.
So with that said, this is either a reaction to the braces or all of a sudden, my anxiety has taken a turn for the worst.
Thanks in advance for whatever info you can share.
I do think that your problem is anxiety not a reaction to the braces. I would think that if you had a problem with the braces it would be because of the nickel in them and it would be just in or around your mouth.
(check out archwired metal mouth forum good support for people with braces)
I wouldnt say your were allergic but your teeth and your heart have a close correlation. I have friends that have to take antibiotics b/f they get their teeth cleaned b/c they have heart palpatations. I would do a search on the internet regarding the correlation between heart and gums..it could just be from all the poking around done in your mouth and it should go away. Just make sure to floss and brush regularly to keep backteria and plaque from getting into your gums.
