Dentures and Celiac

If you have Celiac disease there is also a good chance you also have dentures.   I have had dentures for over 20 years and up until lately it never entered my mind to check on the gluten content of the denture adhesive I was using.  I wrote to both Fixodent and Poligrip on this subject and these are the responses I got.

Hope this will ease the minds of anyone who is dealing with this problem.  It has certainly helped me.


"Thanks for contacting Fixodent

There is no gluten in any of the Fixodent Denture Adhesive or Denture Cleanser products.

I really hope this is helpful!

Thanks again for writing,

Fixodent Team"
