I have a fixed stainless steel retainer behind my front teeth, which I've had for about 2 years. I've recently discovered it contains about 18% nickel. I am sensitive to nickel - can't wear nickel jewellery and have problems with metal clasps and buttons, so I now feel uncomfortable having this in my mouth. My thyroid condition was diagnosed 1 year ago, so after it was fitted. Coincidence? Or is there any literature on thyroid and nickel? Thx
