The Fixodent lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are currently offering free confidential case evaluations to denture cream users suffering from zinc toxicity, neuropathy, or other neurological symptoms. We have already been retained by a number of injured denture cream users to file denture cream lawsuits on their behalf and our Fixodent lawyers would be happy to assist you as well.  If you wear dentures and have been experiencing numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in your extremities, you should contact a Fixodent lawyer immediately as zinc in your denture adhesive cream may be poisoning you.  Other popular brands that contain zinc include Poligrip and Super Poligrip.

Denture Cream Zinc Toxicity Study

In August 2008, a study published in the journal Neurology found that chronic, excess zinc intake in denture cream users can lead to copper deficiency and profound neurologic disease. The study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, reported on four patients suffering from neurological problems associated with copper deficiency and zinc poisoning. Each patient in the study wore dentures and had been using large amounts of denture cream regularly over a long period of time.

Fixodent Lawyers Point Out That Packaging Fails to Warn of Presence of Zinc and Risk of Zinc Toxicity

Because the Fixodent label lacks any warnings about the risk of zinc poisoning and other serious Fixodent side effects associated with excess zinc intake (indeed, it does not even list zinc as an ingredient in Fixodent), many of the more than 35 million Americans who wear dentures are unaware of the link between denture adhesive creams and serious denture cream side effects. Our Fixodent lawyers believe that the manufacturers of Fixodent and other denture creams should be held accountable for failing to warn consumers about the risk of serious side effects with their products, including denture cream zinc poisoning, copper deficiency and neuropathy.
