I went looking on Merck website and after a small run around, found a number that we NEED to bombard with calls. That is how a company figures out that its product is needed. I am 58 and have had FULL false teeth since I was 25. This product was a godsend for me to get back to eating again. I used everything on the market years past, to hold them. Then I found cushion grip!!! I TOLD EVERYONE about it and even bought the first tube for many. I promise I have sold many thousands of tubes!!! I will CALL that company EVERY WEEK for the next YEAR or more, until they bring it back! If you really want it back, I suggest you and your family and friends do the same. WE are the ones that can get that product back on store selves soon if we pull together, so I ask you all, how important is it to you? The squeaky wheel gets the grease!!! Their number is 1-800-317-2165 m-f, 8a-5p CST. Myself and my LARGE family will take this fight to their doorsteps today!! Please join me to get cushion back to us!

It took me a while but I got it down to a science.  The thing to do is if you have a large gap, you need to use more BUT, I coat my teeth and then put a little more on where it is needed. I saw that many said it was a pain to get off and it can be. Again, the trick is to have the teeth warm but not wet when you do it, sometimes it takes more time then others. I have told anyone that I get a chance to  about it and how to make it work for you. I truly can NOT eat without it. It IS worth a little time for what it does for me and giving me back the foods I had to give up before I found it. I tried anything on the market and it was the only one to soften the space between them and my gums.

I hope this helps you some.

Do you think this would be a suitable replacement? They make it for uppers and lowers.

If my reline doesn't work I'm going to try this-I can't handle filling the lower almost full of fixodent & holding the teeth down hard for a few minutes. But I think my dentist realized I'm done screwing araound-he had trouble gettting the mold off my gum so I'm praying my lower will fit that decent-I hate not wearing my teeth.

My Walmart sells them as well. If you have the Walmart app you can check and see. I have the ones for the bottom but I forgot to grab the box of uppers. I haven't tried them yet because I want to get the whole experience. I really don't want to have to do separate things to my teeth, but I will if it means steak/corn on the cob/Honeycrisp apple!

Just before Bayer bought Merck, they went thru their books and got rid of anything not making a certain amount of money to streamline the company. That is very common in business.

I called them today and complained about it and my need for the product. The lady told me the info and wrote down all my comments to pass up the line. The only way we can get it back is by calling them and have everyone you know to call, to ask for it to come back!!! She did say that she has had a few calls for it but not many. Its up to us to get it back!!!! Phone rallies DO WORK!!
