DENTURE CREAM POISONING PROBLEMS
Denture Cream Lawyers
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are investigating potential denture cream lawsuits for users of Fixodent and Super Poligrip throughout the United States who have experienced serious nerve damage or other problems caused by zinc poisoning.
Denture adhesive cream is used to create a secure and strong bond between the dentures and the gums.
The manufacturers of Super PoliGrip, Fixodent and other denture cream adhesives began adding zinc to their products as a bonding agent and to block odor. However, they failed to notify consumers about the risk of problems that are know to occur if too much zinc enters the body when the product is swallowed or absorbed through the mouth.
High levels of zinc in the body can lead to depleted copper levels, resulting in the development of neuropathy and other neurological injuries.

Although the FDA regulates denture cream as a low-risk class 1 medical device and does not require ingredients to be listed on the packaging, the manufacturers still have a duty to warn users about the potential denture cream problems.
The manufacturers of Fixodent and Poligrip face mounting lawsuits over denture cream products, as a result of their failure to warn about the risk of these serious and potentially debilitating dangers.
DENTURE CREAM LAWSUIT ALLEGATIONS
A standard tube of denture cream is designed to last 3 to 10 weeks, yet the manufacturers have been well aware that many consumers use their products at a much quicker rate. As a result of insufficient warnings and directions, many consumers use about one tube per week, which may substantially increase the risk denture cream problems.
It is well known within the scientific community that introducing high levels of zinc into the body can cause peripheral neuropathy and other permanent neuromotor disorders. By failing to properly instruct consumers about the proper use of their product and the risk of denture cream poisoning, the manufacturers generated additional revenues at the expense of consumers safety.
