Cushion Grip is a thermoplastic dental adhesive that uses a soft paste to hold dentures in place. The paste forms a tightly sealed cushion that some denture wearers with sensitive gums claim alleviates the pain they experience from using hard-drying pastes. The product’s unique thermoplastic formula remains soft and pliable, even after four days of daily brushing, cleaning and soaking. The seal remains tight and continues to prevent slipping and shifting while cushioning the wearer’s gums.
Pharmaceutical giant Merck and Co. manufactured Cushion Grip but sold it along with its consumer products division to Bayer AG in October 2014 as part of a $14 billion deal. Bayer AG discontinued the product shortly the sale. Cushion Grip does not contain zinc and is not involved in any zinc toxicity-related lawsuits or product recalls.Learn more about Dental
