My initial review of Comfort EZ (Cushion grip replacement)

My initial review of Comfort EZ (Cushion grip replacement) - I like it a lot. I applied it to the bottom denture last night, and there was a slight effort to spread it but it doesn't have to be precise. I put it in and chomped down firmly for a few minutes. There was a slight taste but honestly nothing that bothered me at all, and it didn't last more than a short time. What this product does is make my bottom denture so much more comfortable that I can keep it in without pain, chew a bit when I could not chew at ALL before - still experimenting there but so far so good. It does not make the dentures "stick" to your gums, but makes them FIT your gums so that they are comfortable and pain-free (for me anyways). I soaked them overnight in my polident bath with no problems. I am going to get a disposable debit card and buy myself a couple of tubes. I think I would even use this if I get the implants. Comfort is the key word here, and that is HUGE.

When you purchase the disposable debit card, make sure that it doesn't say that it cannot be used for online purchases.

Awe, I'm very happy I could help! Also, I see you had an issue after taking denture out and not placing in water. I do this a lot and haven't had an issue. Did you try letting them soak in water to see if that helps?

Yeah I soaked it overnight as normal - but there is also a possibility I didn't have enough product on to really cushion once it dried out a little. This was my first time trying anything of this type!

Beth or Gary, could you tell me how the EZ cushion works on your top denture I have a tiny tube I have not tried it yet because on the directions it said something about the stuff getting stuck in your throat and that scared the crap out of me. Thank you, Elizabeth

Elizabeth it is working great on my top denture. It sticks to the denture so I don't see how it would get stuck in your throat. It's not gooey or oozie at all but I find it to be a little softer feeling then CG.

Hi Beth, thank you for replying so quickly I do appreciate it. I never used cushion grip because I only have my denture since January 25 of this year which is about 4 1/2 weeks. If I likee it as much as you do , do you know how I could purchase it either by check or credit card I will not use PayPal, had a bad experience with it many years ago. Thank you again, Elizabeth

You can't get it in the US. You have to order it from Japan.

It a lot like a Japanese Ebay. Search for cushion comfort EZ.
A lot of the stores take pay pal.

I personally do not need any help with my upper - it fits so well it has not needed any fixative or implants.

Maybe not, when you consider how much out of pocket I had to spend on implants for the bottoms, not to mention the unbearable pain!

Ok so today I took off the EZ. My own fault - I totally forgot and left them a couple of hours last night without soaking and I think that was enough to screw them up. I believe that is MY fault, not the EZ. When you take them out immediately put them in water! I am saving the rest for another time - until I can get my own tubes.

Yes! I have a tendency to take my bottom denture out when I'm at home, quite often. That's fine - but set it in a cup covered in water.

Dentures should not be worn over night either and sitting in water to keep them moist and maintains the life of the denture. Through time if not kept in water can dry out and even change their shape.This also allows your gums to rest and blood flow circulate to help keep your remaining gums healthy as well. :)

I also think if you read the instructions which are poorly-translated from Japanese, there is a warning, but as you say - unless you put a glob in your mouth and swallow it, there is no choking hazard. It is often comical to see these attempts at literal translation that come with these things - you have to read through the lines, so to speak.

Ellen M, I used a little bit of my tiny tube that I got as a sample the other day of the EZ cushion grip. I had it in for a little while and all of a sudden I'm feeling something in the back of the very back of the plate so I stuck my my finger back there and pulled out this big glob of what look like chewing gum. After that I kept feeling like there was something past the back pallet I don't know what they call it of the denture goes all the way up to where are you swallow I think Josie said it's called a PPS anyway that felt like there was stuff there so with my hand I'm trying to get the stuff out then I'm using a tweezer and hoping I don't accidentally pinch the inside of my mouth and really hurt myself, after that I found a few more pieces hanging and grabbed them and pulled them out And then my denture just fell right out. So this stuff is not gonna work for me at all.

That doesn't sound good. Im sorry, you must be so frustrated. I only have an upper, on January 27th. Since i got the liner and fixodent powder i have adjusted really well and it is pretty comfortable for the most part. Alot of the time i forget its even in now. It sounds like you need to go back and get them to do it properly.

Leslie, I wish I could forget I have it in. It is always on my mind that it is there always I wish it didn't hurt and I also wish I didn't have to use adhesive of any kind. I thought the Seabond would be better because no gook to deal with when you take it out but it only worked for me for one day and the next day I put it in and it fell out so looking forward to whenever I'm going to get a hard reline.

I know exactly what your talking about. I've had an upper denture now for about 5 yrs. and I still hate it. It just feels so foreign to me. When I have to put it in to leave the house, I can't wait to get back home so I can take it out and feel normal again. Honestly, I think it's the pallet that bothers me the most. If I could afford it I would have it removed and just get 4 of the implant things or screws to hold the denture in place. I think it would make a huge difference for me. One of the biggest mistakes I ever made was pulling my upper teeth way to early because I couldn't afford the dental work that I needed and I thought my teeth were ugly. Boy what I would give to go back in time! I would settle for those ugly teeth in a heart beat today. But
hindsight is 20/20 right. ☹️

It's been 2 yrs. now, so how are you doing with your denture now? Better?

My uppers are great. Didn't need any implants to hold them in, nor any fixative. The lowers, I had two implants done and it's a constant thing to try and keep them fitting well, BUT I can eat, talk, and smile and they look nice. The pain I suffered from those two implants was a very rare case, wouldn't you know it would be me. I won't have any more done, but I'm glad I've got these.

Yes Elizabeth it stands for Post palatal seal. That is what really helps with your suction. Omg thank goodness you weren't choking. I've never heard of that brand here but if fixodent or polygrip is used we recommend at our clinic for the upper no more than 3 dabs the size of a pea on left righr and center and should spread once you put denture in. Wow that sounds horrible. Glad your better now. Adjustments can be weird. It's not impossible to feel worse after one. If you have a bad sore in the area you got adjusted that feels worse try gargling and maybe take a break and let the sore heal. See if that helps. If not I'd say after a cple days get back over there and get another adjustment.

I guess I have been fortunate. My uppers fit so well and are very comfortable. Don't even need a fixative. I am so sorry you are going through this, Elizabeth. Don't give up!

Omg and please don't use tweezers if that happens again. Hopefully it won't. I had a patient (lady) tell me she uses a spoon due to her lack of mobility in her hands.

I will have to call my dentist again Monday morning and see if he can fit me in for another adjustment. Thank you ladies for your compassion and empathy and for understanding. I never ever wanted to need a denture ever, and by the way I think it was Ellen who said something about implants you should not need any type of adhesive with implants.

No adhesive with implants as the denture snaps in. This cushion grip you all speak of, I don't think we sell that here but it sounds similar to the soft lining you get shortly after the immediate denture is placed. Am I right?

Yes it was me, Elizabeth. I am just getting two implants on the bottom, in the front, and the dentist has said I can use some fixative on the back if I need to. No way I an afford four! I can't really afford two but I have so much bone loss on the bottom it's the only way I'm ever going to eat normally again. I really found the EZ to cushion beautifully. Josie, Cushion Grip is no longer made, and an awful lot of people loved it and miss it. EZ seems to be a decent replacement for some. I have never had a soft lining - my immediate denture was my permanent denture and was hard on the inside.

I take metformin. My numbers are usually 5.9 - 6.1 - a little higher now I think because I can't chew my food properly or eat nice, hard veggies etc. My daily levels run pretty much between 100-110 most of the time now. Honestly I am not really in a position to have the two implants, but we did what we could to find a way because these things are just flip flopping in my mouth now (bottom dentures are the worst for that) and I haven't chewed or eaten normally in months. I wanted to ask you, do you take your's out often to allow healing? I had to even with my uppers (which I am blessed to say fit like a glove and don't need fixative) - but definitely with my lowers. Those sores need a break from the dentures to heal, I think.

Annette, I ordered a tiny little tube that actually is going to cost the same amount of money as the shipping is so I don't know how long it's gonna take to get it because I just ordered regular mail not priority.. EllenM, just to let you know on my lab Corps report regarding my blood sugar it said that if you were numbers are between 5.7 and 6.4 you are pre-diabetic. It said 6.5 which is what mine is now or higher is diabetes. That being said do you really think you need the Metformin? I heard that medicine has bad side effects.

Well I was higher than that before the metformin and change in diet. I had gone from pre to actual diabetes.

Hi Ellen M, just saw your comment now I had replied to you on another link cause I couldn't find our original post. After I replied regarding the medicine I was thinking the same thing as what you just said that perhaps the reason your numbers are lower is because you have been on the medicine. Hope it gets better for both of us.

And sometimes this cushion grip or the other adhesives may only need a little. Maybe you put too much?

Yes you wouldn't be having a reaction to the denture. It's made of acrylic. Maybe your denture needs a good soak. I really hope things get better for you tmro after your visit at the dentist.

Josie my Dentur w gets a good soaking every night from about 11pm or 12 till about 10 or 11 am the next morning with either a Polident tablet or stain away. So I know my Denture has been soaked probably more than anyone's because I can't stand wearing it even though I do

Josie, I went for my adjustment, my Dentist says he doesn't really know what else he can do because he's not seeing anything and I explained to him where it hurts and so I think what he did was trimmed a little away and then he shoves it back into my mouth and of course it would not stay cause I used the sea bond that he had a takeout and then I used some poly grip that I had in my purse to keep it in and now I'm trying to get used to it again. I do still feel pressure on the right I don't know if it's just my mouth thats screwed up.

Hey Elizabeth, everybody has a "screwed up" mouth. tee hee. Honestly no mouth is the same and no mouth is perfect. Usually when a sore is bad my boss was able to see it and helped relieve it by trimming away some of the denture. I also know he has used some material and put it in there mouth and asked them to bite to help see where the pressure was. Yes when you go for an adjustment for your upper it's best not to wear any adhesive so it's easier to take the upper out. We have also recommended depending how bad the sore is to give your gums a rest for a day or so. Also try gargling with salt water. Not sure if that's something you would like to try? See how that goes. We had a patient come in the other day with such a bad sore. I didn't see it as my boss is the licensed Denturist and not I but I heard my boss say " WOW THAT'S A BAD SORE". He relieved it for him and told him not to wear it for maybe the day or so and to make sure he calls us sooner if he needs an adjustment. The poor guy thought he was inconveniencing us which I always give them heck and tell them they are not and we don't want them to be in pain.

Rosie, I don't know how I have two profiles I have two email addresses and my normal one one day it said it was not recognize so I used the other then all of a sudden the normal original one was being recognized so I don't understand how that happened. But I don't need any bullshit from somebody complaining about it I'm not bothering anybody. If it's a problem for somebody I will just not go on this board anymore and I will join that other one.
