Sorry to say,that cushion-grip did not work for me,I will just stick to the poligrip gold-label,I am hoping that sometime in the near future,that a good dentist get take all those extra dentures I have and cut out each tooth and drill it in my mouth,It probably won't happen in my life time,but I will still dream about it..People take care of your teeth,If I could do it over again,I would have never ever gotten dentures,maybe they are okay for some people,but I will regret this till the day I die[read my prevous post] good luck every one with dentures.

It takes some time to get it right with the Cushion grip. I put a bit on the denture after I've let the tube warm up in hot water. Then mold it to fit ,if it gets firm just run it under hot water till it molds to your gums, If you get a good mold it should fit like it should fit, firm and no slipping, clicking or looseness. I did have a tooth fall out of a partial once, dropped in sink and it popped out, I fixed it with crazy glue and never had it come back out.

Do you think it whould be alright to put poligrip over the cushion grip,maybe it would make it hold better?I just can't seem to get anything to really hold for longer then 4 hours,maybe they are just too big[all 3 sets] or I seem to have a lot of saliva in my mouth,even when I sleep.Thanks

I have had my complete dentures for about 5 months now. They take A LOT of time to get used to...but it is possible. I am 37 years old and left mine in 24/7 for the first few weeks. Now I only take MY bottom ones out when I sleep. I NEVER take my top plate out except to clean it in the morning each day. It takes time...and it can SUCK...but it does get better with each day. I can eat MOST things...except for really crunchy veggies, fruits and super chewy things like tortillas and so forth. Otherwise, I am great. Take one day at a time....and when you feel discouraged....just look in the mirror and remind yourself how wonderful you look now!! It does help!!!

Don't go to Affordable Dentures in Bowling Green. They will rip you off and the man doesn't know how to make dentures.
