DENTURE CREAM ZINC SIDE EFFECTS
Zinc Poisoning Lawyers
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are investigating potential zinc poisoning lawsuits for individuals who have suffered neuropathy or other health problems from denture adhesive cream side effects. Free consultations and case evaluations are available.
Denture creams that contain zinc, such as Fixodent and Super PoliGrip, could cause the user to develop high levels of zinc in the blood. Although the body requires small amounts, excessive consumption can lead to hyperzincemia, or zinc poisoning.
Excess zinc in the body also causes a depletion of copper, known as hypocupremia, which can cause neurological damage, neuropathy and other complications.
The recommended daily allowance of zinc is only 11 mg/day for men and 8 mg/day for women, and the highest amount that can be safely tolerated is 40 mg/day.
Researchers have found that zinc side effects from Fixodent, PoliGrip and other denture cream adhesives can cause users to be exposed to as much as 330 mg of zinc per day.
Although zinc levels may return to normal after Fixodent or PoliGrip are stopped, the damage caused by long-term use of the products can be permanent, leaving users with painful and debilitating injuries that may result in the need for a wheelchair, walker or cane.
Many doctors remain unaware of the potential connection between the use of denture cream and zinc poisoning, therefore the generalized complaints associated with side effects of denture cream could go undiagnosed or be mistakenly attributed to a different cause.
It is important to request a blood test for zinc and copper levels if you have used Fixodent, Super PoliGrip or another denture adhesive and experienced:
- Loss of Sensation
- Loss of Balance
- Difficulty Walking

The manufacturers should be held accountable for their failure to warn about the zinc side effects of denture cream. By failing to notify users about the ingredients in their products and not providing proper instructions about the risk associated with using too much of the denture cream, the manufacturers placed profits before the health of the consumer.
