New York, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Zinc-free denture adhesive cream is now available from SecureDenture.com.
The SECURE® Zinc-Free Denture Adhesive developed by an Austrian dentist, is the only non water soluble adhesive worldwide that is effective on both upper and lower dentures. SECURE® is available in denture cream and denture cushions. New sophisticated technology eliminates any slipping and sliding of dentures, and because it doesn't dissolve in water, it will not be washed out while eating or drinking. Only one application zinc-free SECURE® is required per day to maintain total retention.
Some denture creams containing zinc have recently been linked to neurological problems, including peripheral neuropathy, a nerve disorder than can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the extremities.
Studies have indicated denture creams that contain zinc, a mineral that is necessary for health, in small amounts, can lead to hyperzincemia in large amounts which can cause neurological problems, and in severe cases, even death.
A study done at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and published in the journal Neurology in August 2008 reported on 4 patients who suffered neuropathy and other neurological side effects associated with zinc poisoning. They noted that one tube of denture cream should last 3 - 10 weeks, but these patients were all using at least two tubes of denture cream a week. Interestingly, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) currently does not require manufacturers to list ingredients or disclose potential health risks.
