I just read somewhere that if you’re exposed orally to cement it can cause your tastebuds to not work anymore. Is this true?
-------- This is a gross exaggeration, there wont be any dramatic effect like this. Dont worry, this wont happen.
I’m allergic to most temp cements because of clove oil.
-------- This particular permanent cement does not contain any clove oil.
But I can’t sleep thinking my mouth is at risk of chemical exposure or losing taste
------ Relax and go to sleep, there is no risk of loss of taste.
Is there a safe way for my dentist to remove this before he places the permanent?
------ The safest way is that the dentist will remove the extra cement by a hand scaling instrument. All the extra cement will be picked up by the suction tube, dont worry.
Does this answer your question?
