Poligrip and Fixodent Poisoning


Most of the more than 35 million Americans who wear dentures have no idea that denture adhesives can be dangerous. More importantly, because denture cream is classified as a Class I drug, manufacturers have absolutely no obligation to list any ingredients on the label.

Most denture cream users are unaware of the potential health hazards posed by the zinc ingredient in these products. Zinc poisoning will deplete your body of copper and cause serious nerve damage as well as neurological problems.

Symptoms of zinc denture cream poisoning include:

• numbness or tingling in the feet, legs, hands, and/or arms;

• a reduction in strength or ability to move legs or feet, or arms and hands;

• unexplained pain in the extremities;

• a tendency to stumble or fall down; instability and lack of balance;

• change or decrease in walking stride;

• abnormal blood pressure and heart rate;

• reduced ability to perspire;

• constipation and/or bladder dysfunction;

• sexual dysfunction.
