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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
