Denture Cream Issues: Fixodent and Poligrip

Approximately 35 million Americans use denture creams and several of the popular adhesives, such as Fixodent and Super PoliGrip, have been linked to serious and debilitating injuries caused by excess levels of zinc contained in the products that may enter the body.

Some users may have suffered from neuropathy or other injuries caused by zinc poisoning, which could cause symptoms like:

* Paralysis
* Numbness
* Loss of Sensation
* Tingling or Pain in Hands or Feet
* Muscle Weakness
* Loss of Balance
* Difficulty Walking
* Unexplained Pain or Weakness

The makers of each product believe their products work as advertised.
