Do You Have A Toothpaste Allergy? We Can Help!

Do You Have A Toothpaste Allergy? We Can Help!

You may know that you should brush your pearly whites twice a day for two minutes at a time and floss daily. Similarly, visiting our team once every six months is important if you’d like to keep your teeth healthy. However, have you heard that brushing can actually lead to serious problems, especially if you suffer from a toothpaste allergy?

Did you know that a toothpaste allergy can cause a rash to form on your cheeks, your nose, or anywhere on your chin? Naturally, this itch can appear anywhere inside your mouth. Furthermore, if you have a toothpaste allergy, you might have to deal with hives, respiratory issues, watery eyes, and even canker sores.

There are several ingredients that can be responsible for your allergy. For example, you could be allergic to fluoride. As you may know, fluoride is included in your toothpaste because it can strengthen your teeth. Fortunately, if this is the reason for your allergy, you can simply choose a toothpaste without fluoride in it. Unfortunately, your allergy could also be caused by the oils used to flavor toothpaste. Of course, there are a few things you can do to deal with your allergy. For instance, rinsing your teeth with water or putting less toothpaste on your brush helps.
