  Fixodent Causes Neurological Damage

Fixodent Lawsuits Filed

 A warning has been issued for dental creams that are zinc-containing.  Long term and excessive use of denture creams such as Fixodent and Poligrip have been linked to zinc poisoning.  Fixodent poisoning has been reported to cause zinc poisoning, copper depletion, nerve damage and death.  If you have experienced Fixodent Poisoning, you should contact a denture cream attorney to see if you qualify for a Fixodent Lawsuit.  This Fixodent warning applies to any denture creams that contain zinc as well. 

Denture creams are bought over-the-counter (OTC) and are used to help keep your dentures in place.  Most denture creams contain small amounts of the trace mineral zinc to increae adhesion quality.  However, overuse of these products can lead to neurological damage.  Zinc is necessary  in the diet in small amounts to run metabolic pathways and for the proper absorption of copper.  Exessive amounts of zinc lowers the amount of copper assorption generating a copper deficiency.  Copper is also important for act ivation of metabolic pathways by activating enzymes.  If you don't have enough copper, these pathways stop working. 

Some denture wearers have dentures that don't fit properly so they use too much adhesive to fill in the gaps and end up ingesting a lot of denture cream creating Fixodent poisoning.  Clinical studies have demonstrated that some consumers have ingested over 300mg of zinc per day.  The required daily allowance (RDA) for zinc is 11mg for femals and 13mg for males with an amount not to exceed 40mg per day.  Taking in excessive amounts of zinc depletes your copper absorption leading to serious nervous system damage.  If you have experienced nervous system damage from Fixodent Poisoning, you should contact an attorney to see if you qualify for a Fixodent Lawsuit

Fixodent Poisoning leads to neuropathy.  Neuropathy is a serious condition which is often a consequence of diabetes and/or poor nutrition.  Symptoms of neuropathy can include:

  • Pain in your extremities (hands, legs and/or feet)
  • Numbness in your extremities
  • Loss of strength in your extremities
  • Loss of balance causing you to fall over
  • Difficulty walking
  • Changes in blood pressure and heart rate
  • Incontinence (lack of bladder control)
  • Sexual dysfunction

Unfortunately, studies indicate that long term excessive use of denture creams that contain zinc may cause permanent damage which is the reason for this Fixodent Warning.  You should contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the above neurological symptoms.  You might have denture cream poisoning.  If you have Fixodent Poisoning, make sure to seek legal help to find out your rights and see if you qualify for a Fixodent lawsuit.

To become eligible  to participate in the Denture Cream lawsuits and possibly receive compensation for damages. It is critical that you have a blood test to determine the levels of zinc and copper in your  body.  It is extremely important these tests be run while you are still using the denture cream because the copper and zinc levels will return to normal once you stop using the denture cream , even if permanent damage has already been caused. If your zinc levels return to normal despite the the fact you have been hurt due to the use of denture cream,  it is impossible to prove that denture cream has caused zinc poisoning.

Therefore,  if you think you have been harmed by the use of Denture Cream and  symptoms of neuropathy or neurological damage, talk to your doctor ASAP about having a blood test to determine the zinc and copper levels in your system! And If you have already stopped using the denture cream, talk your  doctor as soon as possible about getting your blood tested blood tested if you would like to participate in the Denture Cream Lawsuits.
