Share Article

Denture cream has found to have general health consequences. By using Denture creams patients are aware of their unsavory nature-the smell, taste, and general messiness of the matter. Those reasons are more then enough for many patients to say "I've had it!" and seek Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha's Methods of dental implant treatment in his state of the art Center just located 30 minutes from Downtown Chicago.

A recent report in the medical Journal Neurology search "denture cream" documented several patients in which zinc poisoning was a result of their denture cream. In the past, dental patients commonly reported disliking the smell, taste, and general messiness of denture creams.

The neurology article found that minor changes in the amount of electrical particles (ions) operating the body's nervous system can have disastrous results to one's overall health. Some of the symptoms in the studied patients wearing denture cream included: numbness and weakness in the arms and legs resulting in wheelchair dependence, urinary tract infection (bladder infection), mental cognitive decline, hand weakness and numbness, poor balance, progressive numbness, loss of sense of vibration, and poor muscular coordination. The patients documented were in their 40's and not long-time adhesive wearers

Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha, Chicago and Indiana's most recommended by fellow peers implant dentist and noted regionally dental authority, comments, "We've always seen patients seeking to rid themselves of dentures because of functional problems such as not being able to eat the foods they wish. The adhesives have also been a major motivational factor for these patients as well since adhesive were never all that effective at stabilizing or holding dentures in place. Now with this new information, there is a health risk we never knew about. Quite literally, form the health perspective, patients should be inquiring with their dentist on options where they would no longer have to use denture creams. If you've been putting off getting rid of dentures, this truly is one of the most profound reasons to seek care." By the way we are the first Dental Implant Center in Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana to bring this study into the public's awareness. Mentions Dr. Atcha.
