Zinc is harmless to be ingested in small amount, but it can be dangerous if taken in excess. Zinc overdose can lead to health detriments. A clinical study conducted at the University of Texas, published in the journal Neurology, reported on patients who suffered from zinc poisoning, neuropathy and other neurological disorders associated with long-term use of denture adhesives which contain zinc.
We recommend users of any denture cleansing tablets to use a denture bath instead of a glass to clean their dentures. By using a denture bath users can avoid drinking by mistake the tablet solution after the denture is taken out the solution. In any way it is a good place to bose the orthodontics in any area.
Every now and then, dentists are confronted with dentures whose surface or colour has changed. This transformation is often blamed on chemical cleansers used to clean the dentures. However, one must remember that there are many additional factors which can also cause these changes to dentures. For example: Unsatisfactory polymerisation of the denture material A particularly aggressive mouth environment – especially in patients with illnesses of the digestive system (endogenous causes) Attack by bacteria – can tend to loosen up the molecular structure Taking of medication on a regular basis Frequent imbibing of hard liquor Brushing dentures with a toothpaste which retains chloroform In extreme cases, dentists are presented with corroded, raw and brittle – almost worn out – dentures. Over time, with faulty polymerisation, corrosion can occasionally occur. Water seepage in the structure of the material, discoloration from changing refractions of light, or loss of transparency can also result. In recent years, improved quality of denture materials has meant the described changes seldom occur, or are seen only infrequently compared to earlier use – even though the use of chemical cleansers has grown. The increase of use of chemical cleansers is not only the number of users, but the frequency of regular use. These findings, as well as those from dental practices, justify the conclusion that chemical cleansers can not be blamed for changes in dental materials. Rigorously controlled tests regularly conducted by manufacturers of dental cleansers have also yielded the same results as the microscopic findings in dental practices.
If you use the NaturDent Cleansing Tablets on a daily basis, the dentures will be sufficiently cleaned in five minutes. If some residues are still found on dentures, brush them away under very warm water.
The consistency of NaturDent Denture Adhesive is related to temperature. NaturDent Denture Adhesive should be kept at room temperature. If the tube is cold, it should be warmed in the hand for a short time before using.
For sensitive gums, a mild tingling or burning sensation may be felt occasionally. It will pass by quickly and is absolutely harmless. To avoid the tingling or burning sensation, you can spread the adhesive to create a thin and even layer. Wait about 30 seconds before inserting the denture.
