Lawsuits for Neuropathy, Zinc Poisoning and Other Health Problems from Fixodent Denture Cream

FIXODENT PROBLEMS: ZINC POISONING
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are investigating potential denture cream lawsuits for Fixodent users and Super Poligrip users throughout the United States. Free consultations and case evaluations are available.
Approximately 35 million Americans use adhesive creams like Fixodent to help hold their dentures in place and create a strong bond with the gums. Fixodent is sold over the counter as a safe product. Howver, many users have suffered severe injuries that have left them requiring a wheelchair or cane as a result of problems with Fixodent.
In a study published in the August 2008 issue of the medical journal Neurology, researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center reviewed cases four patients who developed neuropathy and other neurological problems associated with copper depletion from excessive zinc and pointed to the denture cream used by the patients as a possible cause.
Fixodent contains zinc to act as a bonding agent and to block odor. Although Proctor & Gamble suggests that the amount of zinc a Fixodent user would inject is safe, high amounts can be absorbed through the gums or swallowed, upsetting the balance of zinc and copper in the body.
Excessive zinc consumption (hyperzincemia) leads to copper depletion (hypocupremia), which is known to cause neurological damage generally referred to as neuropathy. Unfortunately, by the time the Fixodent problems are discovered by a consumer or their doctor, the user has often already suffered permanent neurological damage.
