Hi my name is Diana and I have had Dentures since I was 25 and I'm soon-to-be 62. Throughout those years I have used a lot of things to try to keep my dentures in place. The only thing that I found it actually worked for me and allowed me to even eat apples and corn on the cob with my dentures in was the product called cushion grip. 5 years ago they took cushion grip off the market and I thought I was going to have a heart attack but now a new company had read our petitions and our complaint center cries for help and they purchase the rights to manufacture it again and as of January 15th it came back on the market. There is a learning curve and how you apply it to your dentures cuz every one of us is different but it is well worth it. EBay in Amazon were selling the last few remaining tubes of it at over $1,400 a tube and sometimes more. For now we don't have to deal with that because uspharma Limited is producing it again and it's 1999. You can order it through eBay or Amazon or even through my cushion grip. Com and if you deal with checks if you go to their web page they will tell you exactly how to proceed with paying with a check. Some places offer discounts some places give you free shipping so look at your best options but I promise you this stuff is great and it does work. I am a very long time user of this stuff and I speak highly of it.

You would think that in 2019 someone could invent adhesives that really work, I have a horseshoe full denture that I cannot stand for more than a couple of hours at a time, luckily I only live with Animals that love me anyway!!!.

Omg yes ! I’ve tried the discs, the powder and the tube of pink stuff. I just got a soft liner kit from Walmart but I am so scared to use it cause nothing else has worked for me. I actually found some of that cushion grip online at Walmart for 20$ bucks I’m gonna try that. I got mine done November 1st 2018 and so far I feel like I’ve made the wrong decision but there’s no going back.

Most the time it’s just me and my kids home so I don’t put anything in and just wear the dentures lol I only have uppers but I’d love to feel normal again.

No, I have never used cushion grip but maybe I should try, the trouble with me is that having such a large object in my mouth has really upset me!!!, the horseshoe is a huge improvement on the full denture. I have been looking on youtube on the ultra thin Russel Kline new dentures, I personally think so long as my UK dentist will take the impressions on my behalf I may give them a try,  they are far less bulky and so long as they are as strong as normal dentures this may be my solution. I have only 5 loose teeth
left on my lower jaw and whenever I muster up courage to have them removed then I too will have to have a full set, Please dont be put off the horseshoe It certainly helps if an alien object in your mouth makes you gag.

I too am having problems with the hunk of plastic. I asked my dentist about the horeshoe upper and he told me I would need implants for it.

Be careful with Robert Klein I have heard not so great things about him and some good things.  Since you are in the UK maybe u should reconsider Robert Klein and see if there is a clinic that could help you there,

Its the new material his dentures are made of thats interesting, apparently the material he uses is so much thinner than those produced in the UK, have you watched any of the videos on his product?
a lot of people say they are much better than normal dentures.

Hi all. I live in England. Luton. Bedfordshire. I’ve had trouble with my dentures since the day I had them fitted. I’ve tried so hard to eat with them. But I find it so much easier to take them out to eat. I can even eat a steak without my dentures I had them fitted 3 years ago. I’ve had NHS dentures. Crap. !!!! Then went private. Paid £200 still crap. I’ve tried really hard to eat a meal with dentures. But still finding it hard after 3 years. I’ve had felines. Tried every glue going. Just found a glue from Japan that’s supposed to be like cushion grip I’ve just received it but it’s all in japanses writing.
