Aim: To review the allergic reactions of acrylic resin in orthodontic patient. Objective: To determine allergic reaction to self-curing acrylic resin in orthodontic treatment. Background and reason: There are various dental materials that can cause adverse reactions in the patient during their use in the treatment. Acrylic resin becoming one of them as it elicits sensitivity to the wearer due to level of residual monomer, particularly stomatitis venenata, a contact allergy. The allergic reactions is described as type IV which takes place following re-exposing a subject to the allergen. The allergic reaction towards methylmetacrylate can be confirmed by patch testing and histopathologic evaluations. The main cause of allergic reactions is suggested to be due to leaching of residual monomer into the oral environment.
