Secure is the most horrible stuff... it burns like crazy.  I tried doing it a few ways, letting it dry for a while before putting in my mouth and no matter how I do it it's horrific. I am not sensitive to smells and stuff so it ws really weird.  Also, after telling them about it they wouldn't take back the product. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Secure rocks! It is no replacement for a reline, but close. I've had my temp. dentures for 8 weeks and they are LOOSE. I've been doing soft relines on them for over a month. I ordered perma-soft, dug out the reline-it and have been experimenting with just secure while I wait. Some people on here (myself included) call it "gorilla glue for dentures. 

It adheres to the denture more than the gums, is easier to remove than pastes, and even expands to fill minor voids between gums and dentures. Yes, kinda like gorilla glue....

There is no comparable product for Cushion Grip Thermoplastic Adhesive, Bayer discontinued production Sept. 2014. 

Let's get Bayer to resume production of Cushion Grip Thermoplastic Adhesive. 

       Contact Bayer @ 1-800-317-2165  or email cc-consreldept@bayer.iconsumer.us

                !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Flood Bayer with calls and emails.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Karin, Bayer cannot do anything like that because Merck still has the rights to that product and they are the ones are discontinued it so when I called Bayer they told me they would relay my concerns about the cushion grip and see if anything could be done.

Use Cushion Grip and add fixodent powder on top of the Cushion Grip. Talking about a super lock in place! And the Cushion Grip lasts a week.

Wow! Sorry to hear That! I'll give it a try. No choice. The Amazon reviews were pretty good. The price markup on the Cushion grip is outrageous!

I also tried secure..it adheres really good for a short time, then starts disentagrating , and you have little pieces that constantly are breaking off until there is none..I tried a new one called poligrip comfort seal strips...DONT get those..after about 15 minutes, its like having slim in your mouth, your spit gets thick and its hard to talk..

I've had great luck with Secure! Especially when you use the tube on the tops (watch as many youtube videos you can find) and the Secure strips on the bottoms. I wore mine for over 12 hours and still had to pry then out. I would have left them in but was going in for a soft reline.

You can Google it and buy directly from the company or you can order it on Amazon, and for some odd reason I think it's cheaper on Amazon.

I use secure all the time. Have never had it burn or have a taste. Works great if you use it right.

Never tried Cushion Grip but from what I have read, this is not like cushion grip. But it does expand and give a little cushion to it. It is just an adhesive.

Secure also sells the cushion adhesive strips that you cut to size. Have one in my lower right now and it hasn't moved at all. No oozing crappy stuff. I have the adhesive on my top and it is very secure.

You are lucky. I tried the Secure strips(had to cut it down a LOT) on my bottom denture, but it slipped out after about 2 hours and didn't work at all. Wish it did :(

Sharon so far so good. It was a huge strip so instead of wasting the entire striip I just cut off what I needed. Will use the rest tomorrow.

Glad it's working for you. I cut mine down also, but the cloth part started slipping out and I ended up just pulling the whole thing off. I dried and blotted everything when I applied it but it didn't help for very long.
That's why I keep buying ($$$$$!) and looking for CG. But I am always open to trying something new :)

Well I guess I am the exception. Secure does NOT secure my bottom denture much longer than the other pastes.  I was not impressed with it at all. Secure is NOT the same or at all similar to Cushion Grip. If you have sore gums or loose dentures that need to be relined, Secure will not alleviate that problem. So if you are still looking for CG, Secure will not be a good replacement.

I'm with YOU Sharon, Secure is no better than fixodent or poligrip, they all stink. I also contacted the company last year explaining to them that their product was burning my mouth and that i wanted to return the product. I even tried letting the paste dry on my dentures for a little while before placing in my mouth at the advise from another member. To this day I have NOT heard from them. I do NOT recommend Secure anymore than anything else. PS I ALWAYS dry my gums and refrain from drinking or eating for 30 minutes.

This is a DIRECT QUOTE from an email that I received this morning from the Secure company:

"One of the biggest secrets, that is not on the box for some reason, is that you make sure that your DENTURE and YOUR GUMS are DRY while applying. This is the leading cause for your denture to come loose too early. Blot your gums dry and put your denture in.

Also if you are using the adhesive on a lower denture many find more success with our cushion strips. Lower dentures tend to be ill-fitting and the cushion strip is able to create more contact between the gum and the denture."

I hope that this helps.

I agree, the Secure tapes are better on the bottom. I have accepted that I can't eat chewy food. The above I have found to be true.

Another product that is available (I haven't tried it yet and I KNOW THAT IT ISN'T CUSHION GRIP) is EZO cushion/adhesive pads. They look like Sea Bond pads, but BASED ON THE INFO ON THE BOX it talks about it lasting for 2+ days. It supposedly forms to your gums and is removable for cleaning.

I'm pretty sure that I found them at Walmart. If anyone has any experience with these, PLEASE let me know how well they work.

Thank you!

I have not tried what your talking about  EZO cushion pads but I just returned from Walmart and found a product called Reline-it.  Haven't used it yet but seems to act like cushion and last quite a few days.  Don't want to try it as I have cushion grip in my dentures and don't want to take it out yet.  If anyone does try RELINE-IT, please let me know how it workd.  It contains no zinc.  THX.

Will do! It didn't arrive yet, but I've been holding off on the reline-it till it gets here. I may go ahead and do another soft reline with reline-it to insure the perma-soft arrives monday. Murphy's law....
