Curious... has anyone (or their children) had any problems with the products dentists use for routine cleanings?
Our daughter will be going for a cleaning in a number of weeks. We're working with the dentist as he is allergy sensitive (one of his children was just diagnosed for nuts). I don't believe he is planning to use any products as he is not comfortable that he can be certain of their ingredients and possible trace contamination.
I did notice from a previous post ( ... ht=dentist) that there are dental products with trace milk/lactose as an ingredient, but this seemed to deal with personal products.

Has anyone already done this work? Do you know of safe products? Are there any "hidden" risks that I should be concerned about?

daughter: ana for egg, sesame, dairy, pistachio/cashew/hazelnut. on contact. allergic+ to soy protein isolate, environmental allergies (e.g. dogs, dust mites). asthma. eczema.
son: peanuts, tree-nuts, OAS, environmental allergies. asthma.

I have not had a problem but I have made sure I have talked to my dentist and been very clear about my sons' allergens. The dairy has made me especially nervous.

If your dentist is allergy aware and checking for ingredients and not using products that don't have ingredients listed, I think I would be okay with that.
