There has been a lot of reporting in the news about the connection between use of denture cream products and serious injury and illness. Specifically, denture creams, like Polident and Fixodent, can cause zinc poisoning and neuropathy. The symptoms may include stomach problems, such as cramps, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. Zinc toxicity could also cause seizures, jaundice, joint pain, or low blood pressure.
