So it's been over 3 weeks since my extractions and as my gums have shrunk so has the effectiveness of my adhesive. I tried cushion grip the first week and because I was being impatient I thought it was a lot of hype. Today being labor day and having the day off I spent a little time with this product applied it evenly for both uppers and lowers and gave it 30 minutes once my dentures were back in I'm finding this time I'm pleasantly surprised. The dentures are holding without adhesive kind of the way they felt when they first went in. What I like about it is the pliable plastic is hugging not sticking to my gums. I'm due for permanent overdentures with 8 implants (already done) in 2 to 3 months but in the interim this product is doing the trick without the mess. Very pleased!!
