Denture Cleaners-Allergy Warning


Denture Cleaners May Cause Allergic Reaction

The food and Drug Administration (FDA) has notified dental health care professionals and patients of the risk of serious allergic reactions among users of denture cleansers.  These adverse events, including abdominal pain, vomiting, seizures, hypotension, and difficulty breathing, have occurred when the product has been used both properly and improperly.  These events can occur soon after first use or after years of use.  The FDA believes that persulfate, a known allergen, is responsible for these reactions.

  • Read all instructions carefully
  • Never chew, swallow, or gargle with denture cleansers
  • Always thoroughly rinse dentures and other dental appliances before placing in the mouth
  • Remember that reactions might not occur right away
  • If symptoms do occur, remove dentures and contact the prescribing dentist
  • Ask the prescribing dentist about using an alternative method for cleaning dentures
