Denture Creams Containing Zinc Linked to Neurological Issues
Many denture wearers have been slowly poisoned over time due to zinc levels that have been found in some denture creams. By using a denture cream that contains zinc, some have built up an excess of zinc in their systems which has led to zinc poisoning and neurological issues.
There are several manufacturers of denture cream that have come under fire lately for their high levels of zinc that is found in denture adhesives. Zinc has been found in the brands below that denture wearers should be aware of:
- Super Poligrip
- Poligrip (Original, Extra Care, and Ultra Fresh)
- Other generic brands
You should check the ingredients listed in your denture cream to determine if zinc is an active ingredient in the denture cream you wear. Not all denture creams contain zinc. In fact, there are many denture creams that took out this ingredient because they realized its danger. Poligrip and Superpoligrip recently made a formula that does not contain zinc. To be safe, check your tube or the side of the box to determine what ingredients are in your denture cream.
If you are someone who has suffered from zinc poisoning from denture cream use, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain, suffering and nerve damage you may have sustained.
