Denture Adhesive Problems

Each year more than ninety million dollars is spent in the United States on denture adhesives. The denture adhesives themselves have unpleasant tastes, and must be reapplied often. They also give an inconsistent fit for dentures, are an ongoing expense, and create embarrassing circumstances.

If you are using denture creams, you are already aware of their unsavory smell and taste and well as their general messiness. Those reasons alone are more than enough for patients to say "I have had it" with denture adhesives.

Another important reason to say good-bye to denture adhesives is the fact that a scientific report in a medical journal, Neurology, June 2008, found several patients who got zinc poisoning as a result of their denture cream. These patients experienced symptoms such as numbness/weakness in arms and legs, poor balance, mental cognitive decline, and poor muscular coordination. These patients were in their forties and not long-time denture adhesive wearers. If you currently use denture adhesives, please seek out a zinc-free denture adhesive.
