I just was entering a giveaway for a dental adhesive that I noticed. It was required that I go in and comment on something that was new to me. Well, while I was there I decided to browse around a bit. It was then that I saw that ZINC (a heavy metal which does occur in our bodies in small amounts and is necessary) could cause some pretty serious side effects if ingested in large amounts. Because I was using much more then I was supposed to-lots was ending up in my stomach. I went to various sites and this is what I found:
Thankfully I do not wear those dentures very often but still think I may ask my doctor next time I go to check for zinc levels just in case. And for those of you, like me, who use dental adhesives—BE CAREFUL-only use the 3 thin strips of the adhesive as is stated in that really tiny directions for use!! We have no real choice but to use it----but please follow the directions. And if you can afford it go to your dentist to have them re-lined or a new pair made. I did read that a lot of the companies making the adhesives are beginning to use a different ingredient--so there is hope!!
