I have had my dentures since June. I am using fixodent food seal. The roof of my mouth burns. Is this caused by the zinc in the products?

Having burning on my soft pallet when I use fixadent is it because of the zinc that's in it. It burns real bad when I put food in my mouth.

Beth, I doubt that zinc is the problem. It's a very small amount. Paste adhesive rely on monomers as the primary glue option. I personally can't use them for the same reason as you. Powder adhesives use something different and for me work perfectly without the nasty taste, offgassing and burning.

Beth McNeal Lake, we are sorry you are experiencing any discomfort while using Fixodent. Our scientific research shows that the amount of zinc an average user absorbs from Fixodent is approximately 2 mg.

It is important to use denture adhesives as directed. Excessive and prolonged zinc intake is reported to be associated with serious health problems. Consult a doctor if using other products containing zinc. It is difficult to understand what may have happened. Please give us a call toll free at 1-855-236-3353, M-F, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST. so we can gather more information and answer any questions you may have. Thanks and feel better soon.
