For those of you who don't know, Cushion Grip was far and above anything on Market when the manufacturer sold division to new pharmaceutical firm who dropped Cushion Grip from their line, much to great sorrow of faithful, long time users.  Good news is, another pharmaceutical company just brought it back.  Yeah!!  Only reason Comfort Lining, which is a poor imitation of Cushion Grip, is dropping prices is because it knows it can't compete with the "Real thing."

The Japanese companies that sell on Amazon are exactly the same thing and almost half the price.  Comfort Lining made a lot of $ based on the discontinued product, Cushion Grip.  That boat has now sailed.

I have used both products and believe me  the Japanese product will do  in a very big emergency, like the one I was in when Cushion Grip left the market but NOTHING, but NOTHING works like Cushion Guip.

Kandy, It made me one Happy Lady.  I was at an end trying all that other junk.  I hoped someone would finally listen to our pleas.

Kandy, you are so right about that Comfort Lining.  That stuff sure didn't work for me.

It's lifted on mine after 2.5 to 3 days.  By the 4th day, the left side lifted completely and pulling it towards the right side it just peeled right off.

The Japanese brands are exactly the same but not quite as stiff after a couple of days but actually stays intact a couple of days to a week longer.

I tried Cushion Grip and it came right back out while I was molding it to my gums. I tried using it more than once. I'm just not all that impressed with it. Maybe because I used it wrong? Also, I called the company, from back when it was manufactured by the 1st. company. They said they would send me a new tube, which they never did.

The Japanese product and DinaBase7, from Italy, are not exactly the same as Cushion Grip.  Depending on just what chemical make-up your dentures are, those two may not "stick" as well as Cushion Grip.  I have tried all three.  For mine, Cushion Grip works best.  It stays for weeks for me.  The other two deteriorate faster.  Obviously, dentures are not all made of the same ingredients.  That may be the difference.  You just have to try them all and see what works best for you.

I've been pretty happy with Sea Bond Sheets, the only inconvenience is having to trim each new sheet to fit, each day.
How is this Cushion Grip better?
Is it difficult to take the dentures out of the mouth to clean them?
I've tried just about every adhesive, haven't liked any of them.
Anyway gums have receded to where I need more than just adhesive.
Thank you!

Mary Loedding Sells, Cushion Grip is like going for a relining except you do it yourself. There are instructions with each tube you buy, but I learned a couple of tricks to make mine work for  long time and not burn so much.  There are videos on youtube for this.

One trick is, once I have the lining in, I put my denture in the freezer for a few minutes. Then I put it in my mouth to form it.  There will always be an excess that needs to be cut off, but be careful not to cut too much off or your time and Cushion Grip will be wasted.

The second trick is to use my denture until I have to use adhesive to keep it in. I will do this for even a few days to get the most bang for my buck. But I don't have to use as much. And what I do to even out the adhesive is, I use a dental floss pick wherein I use the pointy side to evenly distribute the adhesive around the whole denture. This helps me eat a lot of things I can not do with just the Cushion Grip by itself. 

Give it a try. There is a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, there isn't anything better on the market.

Thank you! I expect there's a learning curve, there is with most things. But I'll give this Cushion Grip a try!

Same here Cushion grip is crap in my honest opinion! Came out! Not to mention spending a hour while it stuck all over my hand. Waste of good twenty dollar bill if you ask me! I just ordered the other brand Comfort Lining let's see how this goes bought it yesterday and shipping says it should be here tomorrow morning!

I bought a small tube of Cushion Grip...glad I did!
Follow the directions for heating the tube...for using the key on the end of the tube
There's no reason, unless you're clumsy, for getting it "...all over your hand..."
I have a manicure tool, metal, used for pushing back cuticles. I use that, carefully, for pushing/pressing the stuff evenly all over the denture, as described in the directions. 
I have long fingernails, which makes it difficult to just use my finger 
After about an hour of wear, some of it squishes out the back and up over the top...maybe I need more practice in how much to use. Take out the denture and with sharp scissors trim the excess off the back and top.

Mary Loedding Sells, I was just thinking of you this morning. I was wondering how using Cushion Grip has worked out for you. 

Then, tonight, I see that you wrote this praise report. I am so happy for you. 

I would like to know what manicure tool you use. I've been using my thumb and little finger to smooth it on my lower denture. It's worked all right, but I would like to find something else to use.  Also, about the scissors. I think I need some better ones. Could you recommend which pair you use? 

Thanks.

Glad you had good results with Cushion Guip.  Used properly its GREAT and lasts quite awhile before having to be replaced.

I bought the scissors a long time ago, I think it's the sort that beauticians use to cut hair, or a barber would use to trim mustache. The blades are very long and narrow, and very sharp. I never use them for anything but trimming hair, or, now, to trim excess Cushion Grip
The cuticle tool came in a manicure kit I bought a long time ago. The handle is about 3 inches long. On either end is a narrow "scoop" like thing, maybe 1/4 inch wide, metal. Since it's meant to push back the cuticle, no part of it is sharp. 
Since its metal, not likely to stick to the Cushion Grip like something made of wood, or plastic, would. 
I heat the end in very hot water...so...being hot does a better job of pushing the plastic than it would if it was cold.
Like I said, I have long finger nails and when that stuff gets on my fingernails, it's very difficult to remove!

Mary Loedding Sells, I squeeze out a bubble, then roll it into a ball with my fingers. Then I put two balls on the palm of my other hand. 

I like your description of the manicure scissors and the cuticle tool. What I really want is a pair of scissors that work without cutting my fingers or slip. 

I've learned, the best way for me, is to push the Cushion Grip from the back of one side until I get to the middle, then I start on the other side and do the same. That is what works best for me.

That's great, whatever works for you. 
I follow the directions that come with the package. So far that works for me.
Craft scissors are great
Or, if you can find "Nurses Scissors" or also known as "Medical Scissors" that would help. "Nurses Scissors" are short and one of the blades has a nub on the end. The blades are perpendicular to the handle. They're meant to be able to slip the scissors under bandages, between bandage and skin, without cutting or scratching the skin.
Children's scissors are safe of course but not nearly sharp enough.

Joan Stoshak, That is so true. I'm on my eighth day with this last application.
