Denture Cream Zinc Poisoning
Some denture creams contain the ingredient zinc, a potentially harmful mineral that can cause severe health problems with overuse. If you have used the denture creams Poligrip®, Fixodent®, or other zinc-containing formulas, you may be at risk for zinc poisoning and the neurological problems that accompany it.
Thankfully, there is a way to take action against the negligent manufacturers who exposed you to this dangerous product. Attorney Jerry Taylor represents families affected by denture cream zinc poisoning in Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, and throughout the country. Please call (855) 646-4355 or e-mail the Taylor Law Firm to learn more about our denture cream zinc poisoning experience and how it can help your case.
How Denture Cream Works
Poligrip® and other denture creams are utilitarian products, formulated to hold dentures in place so users can eat and speak normally. The water-soluble paste expands with water application and conforms to the gums for tough hold. Users apply the denture cream onto the denture fixtures, creating a strong, temporary bond between the gum tissue and the fixture.
Why Denture Cream Can Be Dangerous
Too much zinc in the body can cause serious nerve damage, including lesions of the peripheral or central nervous systems. Zinc poisoning symptoms include numbness, tingling in the hands, paralysis, muscle weakness in the legs and arms, paresthesias (tingling or shock sensations), and anemia, among others.
Zinc poisoning leads to a simultaneous copper deficiency, which can cause nerve damage in the arms and legs and lead to movement problems, lack of coordination, fatigue, skin lesions, hair loss, diarrhea, and weakness. Many zinc-poisoned patients will need continuing care and may find themselves confined to a wheelchair.
Denture Cream Zinc Poisoning and Neuropathy
Neuropathy is one of the most common and most serious health problems caused by denture cream zinc poisoning. It is a nerve condition that can cause many sensation-related side effects, including numbness and tingling, weakness, paralysis, pain, and instability.
Victims with severe neuropathy may experience blood pressure and heart rate abnormalities, bladder problems, and sexual dysfunction.
