Denture Cream Lawsuits Piling Up

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Lawsuits have been in several federal courts by people who claim that zinc in denture creams, like Poligrip and Fixodent, caused their neurological problems, including neuropathy.  According to the National Law Journal,  on May 28 the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation in Louisville, Kentucky held hearings about possibly consolidating  all federal lawsuits against GlaxoSmithKline – the maker of Poligrip – and Proctor & Gamble – the maker of Fixodent – in a single jurisdiction.

According to the National Law Journal,  a dozen denture cream lawsuits are now pending in federal courts in California, Colorado, Florida, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, and others are on the way.  One  law firm, Morgan & Morgan, told the Journal that it is in the process of evaluating about 3,000 such cases and is nearly ready to file about 40.  It has partnered with two other firms, including New York-based Parker Waichman LLP, that together have about 75 denture cream lawsuits ready to go, the National Law Journal said.

The plaintiffs in the lawsuits contend that the zinc in denture cream can cause copper deficiency, and that in turn can lead to severe neurological problems.  As we’ve reported previously, a 2008 study published in the journal Neurology found that four neuropathy patients who had used excessive amounts of denture cream had extremely high levels of zinc in their blood. Their use of denture cream was the only thing the patients had in common, besides their neuropathy.  The researchers from the University of Texas who conducted the study concluded that  the use of denture cream was the only “plausible explanation” for the patients’ high zinc levels and copper deficiencies.

Most of the more than 35 million Americans who wear dentures have no idea that denture adhesives can be dangerous. Because denture creams like Fixodent and Poligrip are considered to be a Class I medical device, the Food & Drug Administration does not require their labels to warn that excessive use may lead to zinc poisoning and neurological problems.
