Some individuals may have an allergic reaction to latex, which is commonly used in dental products such as gloves, masks, or dental dams. Symptoms of latex allergy can range from mild irritation to severe reactions, including hives, difficulty breathing, or anaphylaxis. Dentists and dental staff should be aware of latex allergies and provide latex-free alternatives to ensure patient safety. Patients with known latex allergies should inform their dental providers to prevent any adverse reactions during treatment.
