There are two most common Fixodent side effects that were already proven by certain studies. These are the neurological disease or malfunction of your nerve system and a blood disorder. Fixodent zinc was associated in these two common ailments because of too much zinc consumption that most users have mistakenly realized. Zinc, as we all know is important in our body, but if we consumed large amounts of zinc contained in a certain product, it lessens copper levels in our body which are responsible for a healthy nervous system. This is popularly known as “hyperzincemia”.
Yes, it has a high contribution if you will be switching to a Fixodent zinc-free product. However, it does not guarantee you to reverse the damage done already by a denture cream with zinc. The good news is that, it restores healthy blood composition and your zinc blood levels will go back to its normal flow.
Listed here are some examples of denture creams WITHOUT zinc. These can stabilize Poligrip or Fixodent side effects through copper supplementation and reducing of zinc intake.
