I have discovered a wonderful adhesive product, but I can't find it anymore. It was sold in CVS stores, but now it's gone. Anyone know where to get it? I love this stuff!!! I wouldn't use anything else if I could help it.

Try Amazon or Drugstore.com. I have found lots of items there that disappeared from the stores. I have two boxes of it, not used so far. Is it difficult to use? Directions sound hard. How long did it last? Days like the box said?

Please everyone that uses Cushion Grip tell Fixodent or polident to start making this product. It is the only way I can eat. Merk Labs stopped making it due to not enough sales but the only sold it at CVS. I BOUGHT EVERY TUBE WHEN I FOUND IT. Today it is selling for $80.00 a tube. 4 for $255.00. That should tell some marketing people to start making it. Let them know. I email and call. If we all did this someone would make it. Wish I had the formula and I would sell it in larger tubes than 1 oz. Jeannette

Its not hard at all to use. I really don't know what I will use now. None of the other products work at all for me.I've  lost 9 pounds since I haven't been able to eat anysthing, I'ts hard to talk, I know I should get new dentures , but who can afford them, my husband just had a double pass and I am also trying to cope with COPD  and heart problems . Not ready to git new teeth, I think the reason they did not have enough sales is because they never advertised it, the only way anyone heard about it was word of mouth, I bet anything if they  made it again and put even a few adds out , they would be amazed at how well it would sell. If I don't find something to replace it soon, I/m going to try using fimo clay, I already have a tooth missing from the front of my bottom teeth, For years I have been making a tooth from clay, no one can even tell. Sorry didn't intend to go on like this. Jeanne, it does last as long as the box said it does.EVERYONE  that liked cushon  grip please let fixodent and (Procter and Gamble) know how good the product was and how badly we miss it.

I read online somewhere it wasn't due to sales but lawsuits that the product contained to.much benzene. You can buy do It yourself reline kits and pads. I'm going to try the pads for my lower denture. My bf of 15 years had a double by pass in December. I know what you are going through. Hang in there.

My dental hygienist just recommend it to me. Sadly, I found it has been discontinued due to a company buy out. They have it on Amazon.com but it's expensive. I haven't seen if they're replacing it with a different product.

My dentist told me to keep using it as my gums are so sensitive . Call Merk Labs, email, let everyone know we need it. I emailed Polident and Fixodent. Merk only has a phone number and they were not nice to me.

You can get Cushion Grip from Walmart on line and the cost is lot less that if you order direct from the company, I just got a tube. It doesn't work for me I'm on temporary as well waiting to solve my eating habits. Good luck for everyone.

Well the criminals are at it again. Amazon and EBay have it but selling it at $40 plus a tube. When I saw a clearance price at CVS I was afraid that would happen.
I hope all the scalpers teeth fall out and someone rips then off.

I felt the same way, Jeanne. I'm still tempted to buy a tube. I just had my soft refine but will still need adhesive until I get my permanent set. Hopefully, they'll have a substitute product.

There is a website for discontinued products, it says you can request companies reconsider selling a product. I wrote to one of the eBay sellers and told them what I thought of them. Expecting a Hate response.

Schering plough was bought out by Merck, I believe. I'm tempted to contact them and see if there's a substitute they'd recommend.

I did call them. They said there was not enough sales. Well, if they sold it to more than just CVS people would buy it. They were not friendly to me.

I have been using it for ever they used to sell it a Walmart, I know they would have had a lot of sales if they advertisd it. My mother inlaw told me about it and she found  it by mistake. That was almost 40 years ago.  I'm old and don't need to go looking for something to replace it.  If only I had a warning !!! PLEASE HELP US !!!

I found it by accident too. I called the customer number for Bayer, which is who bought out Merck. The thing is, Merck was who manufactured it but now they only produce pharmaceuticals only and not over the counter items like Cushion Grip. Bayer doesn't manufacture anything, they only distribute. I've seriously considered finding out how difficult it would be to make it and market it myself. Anybody have a tube that could tell me the ingredients? I'm serious!!

I agree, there are no ingrediants listed on anything I can find.  We could get rich and famous if we could make it LOL  and I am serious too.   Jeannette

Excellent idea. Remind them that denture products are "must have" items and the market needs to expand with better products.
