People of old age are most likely to wear dentures. However, anyone can wear a denture which is why it is not surprising when the side effects of denture creams have affected a lot of people in different age groups.
There are quite a number of people who have experienced a numbing and painful sensation on their hands and feet and have led them to become immobile that they need devices in order to support their hands and feet. Paralysis can also be a result as a consequence of , copper deficiency, anemia, and nerve damage. The zinc found in denture creams is seen as the culprit because they are said to cause poisoning when large amounts of it is taken in.
Allegations that the manufacturers have already known about the dangers of denture creams yet did not informed the public about it makes this situation very sad. In order to stay away from the complications of these product, these manufacturers reasoned that there are directions that came with the product on the amount of denture cream to be used. However, an equal measure of the product that can be used safely cannot always be guaranteed as these people only want their dentures to have a strong hold.
As litigation against both companies gains momentum, Procter & Gamble may capitulate on its decision to manufacture Fixodent with zinc. The publication of additional scientific findings linking the zinc in denture creams to neurological problems might have a similar effect. While researchers have known about the link between too much zinc, too little copper, and neurological problems for some time, it was only in the last few years that they began to understand that the zinc in denture creams was a likely culprit in patients with neuropathy.
A lawsuit is very fitting after the manufacturer failed to inform the public about the potential dangers of their denture creams. As a compensation for the damages that the products has created, a lawsuit will take into account that the right amount of denture cream settlement will be given.
