Do you still make Cushion Grip Thermoplastic Denture Adhesive?

Pam the company that made Cushion Grip was bought out by Bayer and they discontinued the Cushion Grip. You CAN buy a four pack of it on Amazon.com BUT you will pay $399.00!!! I am currently looking for a product, also, that works as good as the Cushion Grip did, but so far no luck...
I sent an email to Bayer expressing my concern that Cushion Grip was no longer manufactured and that there are thousands of people that use the product. While on the phone we went to both Amazon and Ebay and they were outraged at the prices the product is being sold. I told them they had enabled a black market and they totally agreed.
I suggest contacting Bayer via email. You need to include the product you are writing about and Cushion Grip is not listed. I just checked one of the products in the list and told them in the opening sentence I was writing about Cushion Grip. They responded within 24 hours and within a week send another email asking that I call them. When I called provided them the response number to the lady answering the phone and she took all the information. She said the more people contact them the better chance to have the product put back on the market.
This is a very simple process and the lady I talked to was extremely nice. I have no doubt that if enough people do this that Bayer will once again produce the product.
I also have the feeling that Bayer is going to contact both Amazon and Ebay regarding the outrageous prices they are allowing customers to sell Cushion Grip and also may tell them that they could be liable for allowing a product that may be out of date to be sold on their web site.
Go with COMFORT LINING ( just go directly to its' site ). It is thermoplastic material . It's approximately 1/6 th of what those gougers on ebay are charging for Cushion Grip !! Start putting those Cushion Grip crooks out of business ! Sometimes EXTREME GREED rears its' ugly head !
Cushion Grip is no longer sold over the counter. However, it is being sold on ebay and other sites through the process of "PRICE GOUGING" (astronomical pricing due to GREEDY INDIVIDUALS). There is a comparable product out. It is COMFORT LINING. It too is a thermoplastic dental adhesive. It goes for about 1/6 th of what Cushion Grip is going for on ebay. Just go directly to the COMFORT LINING website and its' price is in the lower $30 range. Don't be foolish and fall for those Cushion Grip prices on ebay. Capitalism is a way of the United States. But GREED toward the vulnerable people that prefer thermoplastic adhesive is shameful and disgusting.
I just found out they are no longer making Cushion Grip. I used to pay $10 - $12 dollars for a 1 oz tube. I found out that there is another company that sells Comfort Lining. It is $35 for a 1oz tube. That is quite a price difference. I am having a hard time accepting this information. I have no idea of what to do.
I find the plain Cushion Correct works better than Cushion Correct EZ. It's the one in the pink box.
The plain Cushion Correct, for me, seems to adhere to the denture better and last longer.
Your results may vary. I suggest you try both and order a couple of tubes cause it does take a while to get it and once you try it you won't want to be without it ever again. Get the big tube.
Actually like it slightly better than the old Cushion Grip which worked great but was a bear to remove.
I am new to denture and never used Cushion Grip, but reading about it Bayer company bought patient and will not produce it anymore. So looking around I found Denture Sure Fit Kit. You can get it through Amazon or its website for 50 dollars. I used it on top dentures and was really pleased with it. I even used it on bottom dentures and WOW... it made my bottom dentures tighter but still use denture cream, but I use less of it now. My dentist was going to charge me 140 dollars for reline and dentures were going to have to be sent out for this. There was a 2 week waiting period to get them back. Oh, heck no.. so I did not even go that route. I replace the reline about every 3-4 months. Watch videos on youtube for tips and tricks on using this product it really helps. I hope I have help others out there with this problem. Good Luck!
