Dental Implants and Products

Injured After Using Denture Cream or by a Defective Dental Implant?

Getting a dental implant or a cavity filled or using denture cream is routine for many people. Knowing that these dental devices or products will help you chew your food generally makes the decision to use them an easy one.

But sometimes these devices are poorly made or designed. A dental implant can crack or fail to integrate with your jaw bone, causing pain and discomfort. Some denture creams are made with zinc, which can rise to high levels in the body and cause zinc poisoning (hyperzincuria). Zinc poisoning can lead to debilitating diseases if not properly treated. Defective aluminum tooth fillings can also be hazardous to your health.

If you or a loved one has received a dental implant or regularly uses denture cream and is experiencing complications, the product may be defective. We can help. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys will represent patients who have been harmed by defective dental implants and dangerous denture creams. We work with an experienced team in bringing dental product liability lawsuits in courts throughout New York State.

How Do You Know if You Were Injured by a Defective Dental Product?

If you have received a titanium dental implant or aluminum filling and are experiencing pain, it could be because your implant or filling has cracked or bone reabsorption is occurring with your implant.

If you are a long-term user of denture cream or dental adhesives, you may have an increasing lack of energy, weakness or numbness in your arms or legs and more frequent nausea. High levels of zinc in the body affect people differently, but common signs of zinc poisoning include tingling in the hands and feet, lack of coordination or poor balance, a burning feeling, fever, shaking, vomiting, yellowing in the whites of your eyes, low blood pressure, a metallic taste and rashes.

Dental Products With Known Problems

Over the past few years, problems have been reported with a number of dental devices — in fact, some manufacturers have worked with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue advisory warnings. If you or a loved one has been harmed by any of these products or similar ones, call 212-750-1200.

  • Denture creams like Fixodent and Super Poligrip
  • Dental implants such as Nobel Biocare or Noble Direct dental implants
  • Certain white fillings or aluminum fillings
  • Some dental crowns imported from China
