denture cream contains zinc, and chronic excessive use may result in hypocupremia and serious neurologic disease
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who suffer from Denture Cream severe adverse events. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on May 14th, 2012, Texas resident, Jeffrey Keck, filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia’s Common Pleas Court (case no. 120501122) alleging that he suffered physical injuries from his use of Fixodent. Fixodent is a denture adhesive cream manufactured by Procter & Gamble. This lawsuit is filed as a short-form complaint in the master denture adhesive cream litigation at Common Pleas Court. In the lawsuit Keck alleges that he suffers from zinc toxicity, nerve damage, kidney and liver failure among others as a result of his use of Fixodent from 2001 until the present.
A study published in the General Dentistry issue of April 1st, 2011 revealed that excessive use of zinc-based denture adhesive cream may cause neurological damage and other problems from zinc poisoning. The study was conducted by the University of Maryland.

In February 2011, the FDA called for the removal of zinc from all denture adhesive creams. In 2008, the American Academy of Neurology published a study on Denture Cream concluding that “denture cream contains zinc, and chronic excessive use may result in hypocupremia and serious neurologic disease.”
