I have never seen one after placing hundreds of them over the past 30 years, nor have I read anything in the research or performance evaluation literature regarding that type of response.

It is possible, however, to experience a slight, temporary chemical burn from the etching gel used to prep the tooth surface for the sealant, or an allergic reaction to the operator's latex gloves. I would advise the practitioner of your experience so it can be examined and noted in your chart.

When using a new pan gasket, no sealant is necessary. Using sealant on a automatic transmission pan gasket is a bad idea, excess sealant can cause trouble.
