Can Denture Cream Cause Zinc Poisoning?
A: Yes. Denture adhesives are known for securing dentures in place, and certain denture creams have been tied to zinc poisoning. Fixodent is an example of a denture cream that has high levels of zinc in their ingredients.
Over time these levels of zinc build up in the body, and denture wearers have been known to suffer from nerve damage, pain in their arms and legs, muscle weakness, and loss of sensation.
By using a denture cream that contains zinc, some people have built up an excess of zinc in their systems that has lead to zinc poisoning and neurological damages. Although not all denture creams have high levels of zinc, it is important to read the ingredients in the denture cream that you use.
