Palladium is increasingly used in industry, but also in fine jewellery and in dentistry. Thus, palladium‐silver alloys comprise a substantial part of the noble metal ceramic alloy sales in Western countries. The increased use of this metal seems, however, to be paralleled by a rise in the number of reports of palladium allergy. Recently a European study reported a sensitization rate of 2.8%. In Austria, where palladium has started to displace amalgam in dental fillings because of concerns about… Expand
Metal Allergy: Palladium
Palladium (Pd) has close chemical resemblance with nickel and platinum, and its main applications include use in dentistry for crown and bridgework and sometimes use in jewellery. Especially due toExpand
Micro analysis of metals in dental restorations as part of a diagnostic approach in metal allergies.
TLDR
A diagnostic approach from a dentist's point of view, which enables analysis of metals in a patient's oral cavity, and two patients with nickel allergy are described where removal of nickel-containing materials resulted in the marked alleviation of symptoms and improvement of health. Expand
New developments in jewellery and dental materials
TLDR
This communication reviews the latest alloys introduced in the fields of jewellery and dental prostheses and it is evident that, although not always correctly used, the words “antiallergic”, “hypoallergic,” “non‐allergic" or "to avoid allergies” now appear frequently, indicating manufacturers' awareness of the problems that nickel can cause.

Palladium allergy in relation to dentistry
Palladium is a metal that is used as alloying metal for dental crowns and bridges. This thesis focusses on the possible impact of oral exposure to this metal on the immune system, and allergy inExpand
Biological effects of palladium and risk of using palladium in dental casting alloys.
TLDR
In spite of the potential adverse biological effects of Palladium ions, the risk of using palladium in dental casting alloys appears to be extremely low because of the low dissolution rate of palladium ions from these alloys. Expand
Contact allergies to nickel sulfate, gold sodium thiosulfate and palladium chloride in patients claiming side‐effects from dental alloy components
TLDR
The findings suggest that the dental patient group represents a subgroup with a high frequency of metal allergy and is statistically significant or close to significance for nickel sulfate, potassium dichromate, cobalt chloride, palladium chloride and gold sodium thiosulfate. Expand
Contact stomatitis due to palladium and platinum in dental alloys
TLDR
A patient with contact stomatitis due to combined sensitization to palladium and platinum is reported, and Histological examination of a biopsy from the test site of palladium chloride at D3 showed both eczematous and lichenoid changes. Expand
A 10‐Year Retrospective Study on Palladium Sensitivity
TLDR
Palladium sensitivity is more common in oral diseases than in skin and a previously unknown high degree of co‐reactivity of gold with palladium to the same degree as the known co-reactivity with nickel is described. Expand
SF-ICP-MS Analysis of Palladium in Fluids of Patients Sensitized to Metal-Based Dental Restorations
TLDR
Results showed that the frequency of mono-reactions to Pd are increased from 1996 (0.11%) to 2006 (1.6%), suggesting that this metal is becoming a "new" potential allergen. Expand
Metal allergen of the 21st century—a review on exposure, epidemiology and clinical manifestations of palladium allergy
TLDR
It is concluded that clinically relevant palladium allergy should mainly be suspected in patients who present with allergic contact granulomas at sites of piercing, but also in Patients who have clinical disease and palladium patch test reactivity without concomitant nickel reactivity. Expand

Contact mucositis due to palladium
TLDR
There is an impression that the oral mucosa is more resistent to sensitization, based upon the fact that negative responses are frequently found when patch testing with standard allergens has been performed, and it is suggested that palladium chloride 1% aq. Expand

TLDR
The results show that a dental alloy envisaged for use should be tested in an epicutaneous test, if the patient shows a positive reaction to the metallic salt solution, in case of positive patch tests to nickel sulphate. Expand

TLDR
In the patient sensitization to palladium from a metal bridge in the oral cavity can probably be considered as the cause of the local and systemic symptoms. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that nickel is irreplaceable in the majority of the alloys, because of its excellent technical properties and low‐ price and, as a result, the % of sensitizations to this allergen will not only maintain their present high level but will probably increase in the future. Expand
