The popular denture adhesives Poligrip and Fixodent could cause zinc poisoning, neuropathy and other debilitating injuries. The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential denture adhesive lawsuits for individuals who have experienced problems with Poligrip, Fixodent and other similar products.
Poligrip and Fixodent problems can cause elevated levels of zinc in the blood and reduced levels of copper, potentially resulting in:
- Zinc Poisoning
- Neutropenia or Pancytopenia
- Bone Marrow Failure
- Central Nervous System Defecits
- Other Neuorlogic Injury
Nearly 35 million people in the United States wear dentures and many of the widely used denture adhesives contain zinc. However, they do not contain adequate warnings about the potential risks of these products may pose.
If a denture wearer uses large amounts of the adhesive, they could receive too much zinc, which can result in a lowering of copper and potentially serious neurological issues.
Symptoms of Fixodent or Poligrip problems could include:
- Loss of Sensation
- Tingling in the Hands or Feet
- Muscle Weakness
- Unexplained Pain
The zinc poisoning caused by Poligrip and Fixodent can cause permanent injury if it is not diagnosed early and treated.
