Dangerous Denture Cream

North Carolina dangerous denture cream lawyer

Top denture cream brands, including Fixodent and Super PolyGrip, have been linked to severe nerve damage. Users of denture cream may sustain injuries when they are exposed to excess amounts of the ingredient zinc, which is used as an adhesive and odor controller.

The recommended daily allowance of zinc is 8 mg for women and 11 mg for men. Some denture wearers have been exposed to as much as 330 mg of zinc daily.

Dangerous denture cream side effects

Symptoms of zinc poisoning connected to too much zinc include the following:

  • Numbness or tingling in arms and legs (paresthesias)
  • Painful or abnormal sensations when touching something (dysesthesias)
  • Difficulty walking or lack of coordination when walking
  • Weakness or heaviness in arms and legs
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of balance
