  • “In daily practice, I see how dental metal fillings (eg amalgam), as well as dental or orthopedic implants, can have an adverse effects on arrhythmias (eg atrial fibrillation).

We are delighted to see that metal allergy is becoming more recognised among health professionals. "Cases in which patients are inquiring about a metal allergy as it relates to their metal implants - including joint replacements, rods, pins, screws, plates, certain neurologic and cardiac devices such as pacemakers, and dental devices - are becoming more prevalent as medical implants become more common,” said Dr. Golara Honari, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at Stanford School of Medicine." She adds: "There must be a very close relationship between the surgeon and dermatologist as they work together to consider if a patient needs a different type of implant or if they should be tested for metal allergies prior to surgery," she said."
