In the United States each year more than 90 million dollars is spent by the public on denture adhesives. The denture adhesives themselves have unpleasant tastes, must be reapplied often, give an inconsistent fit of the denture, have continued costs, and create embarrassing circumstances. It has just been revealed that denture creams are literally poison to some patients.

If you are using denture creams, you’re already aware of their unsavory nature–the smell, taste, and general messiness of the matter. Those reasons alone are more than enough for many patients to say “I’ve had it!” and to get their dental implant treatment done using Dr. Jivraj AO4+ Smile Solution for Missing Teeth.

Now you can add one more reason to say goodbye to denture cream and gain secure, comfortable, beautiful teeth that help preserve your facial bone using dental implants.

Toxic Denture Cream

A recent scientific report in a medical Journal (Neurology June 2008) found several patients in which zinc poisoning was a result of their denture cream. Neurology is the study of the body’s electrical system (the nervous system). It’s technically pretty complicated and there is more research to be done on this topic (if you’d like to see the original article it’s at www.neurology.org  search under ‘denture cream’).

By the way, I was the very first dentist in Ventura County to bring this study into the publics’ awareness.

As these patients found, even minor changes in the amount of electrical particles (ions) that operate the human electrical system can have disastrous results.

What Were the Symptoms?

Some of the symptoms in the studied patients wearing denture cream included:

  • Numbness and weakness in the arms and legs resulting in wheelchair dependence.
  • Urinary tract infection (bladder infection)
  • Mental cognitive decline
  • Hand weakness and numbness
  • Poor balance
  • Progressive numbness
  • Loss of sense of vibration
  • Poor muscular coordination

It should be noted that these were patients in their 40’s and not long-time adhesive wearers!

If you’ve been putting off getting rid of the denture cream, this truly is one of the most profound reasons to find a way to make your implants happen.

89% Better Outlook On Life

For many people in our culture the loss of teeth is associated with aging. Implants give a psychological lift to these people with missing teeth who would otherwise have some feelings of inadequacy related to aging and loss of teeth.

In fact, in a study by Branemark, an implant inventor found that 89% of patients treated with dental implants judged their psychological health improved compared to before treatment.

The majority of these patients perceived their implant supported replacement teeth as an integral part of their own body–just like their natural teeth!

If you’re ready to discuss eliminating denture adhesive from your life or want a better outlook on life in general, it’s time for a consultation.
