Fixodent, the extremely popular denture adhesive cream, has reportedly been linked to serious adverse health effects. Those who use Fixodent may be at an increased risk of developing neuropathy and other severe neurological problems.

Fixodent Overview

Fixodent, a product of Procter & Gamble (P&G), is an immensely popular denture adhesive cream that has found its way into the homes of millions of Americans. However, recent studies have discovered that that the zinc found in Fixodent can potentially enter a persons body after being absorbed through the gums. The introduction of zinc into the bloodstream can lead to severe copper depletion and even zinc poisoning. As a result of zinc entering the bloodstream, a person may develop severe, life-threatening nerve damage or even neuropathy.

Side Effects of Fixodent

The most sever Fixodent side effect is a direct result of the zinc contained in the denture cream. Excessive exposure may lead to a copper deficiency which can result in neurological problems like neuropathy. Also known as peripheral neuropathy, this potentially fatal condition refers to a collection of disorders that occur when nerves are damaged. Signs and symptoms of Fixodent-induced neuropathy include:

  • Numbness in extremities
  • Equilibrium problems
  • Loss of sensation
  • Unexplained bouts of pain
  • Decreased walking stride
