FDA Report: Denture Cleaning Products
The Food and Drug Administration issues warnings about potential allergic reactions and other reactions to the use of several popular denture cleaning products. Symptoms including gum tenderness, rash, urticaria,
respiratory distress and hypotension.
The symptoms can be caused by misuse of the product (some patients reportedly using denture cleaners as a mouthwash) or by a known allergen contained within the formulation of different denture cleaners, an allergen known as persulfate.
