I just got my new dentures and cann't keep them in my mouth very long like a minute or two with getting sick. What can I do to help me get over this? I will take a picture of them and post it on here to see if it is made right.


Thanks John

like a gag reflex,John? My dad has a sensitive gag reflex and said when he first got dentures he felt as that he were gagging. BUT perhaps yours need adjusting. The top plate may be too far back,causing the problem.

After getting a new set of dentures its normal to go back to the denturologist a few times to get adjustments taken care of and to get questions answered..
If its a gag reflex to actually having the dentures in your mouth your options are limited,you will just have to get used to it..

If you are having problems with the upper denture extending too far back so that it affects your gag reflex, it is a VERY easy fix for the dental laboratory to reshape the back of the denture so that it does not go so far back on the palate. Discuss the problem with your dentist, and the fix should be free since it is an adjustment to a new set of dentures. It is not an uncommon situation with new upper dentures, and luckily easy to fix the problem.

I'm not alone on this problem because more people with upper dentures have this problem also at first I have found out. Some have told me it took weeks to stop the chocking.

You can wait it out and hope for the best, or go to the dentist and have the problem taken care of. Choices.
Good luck.

I'm going to my dentist tomorrow to have him cut off some back of the denture. I thinks it's to long.

Post another one after you've been to the dentist if he/she ends up making structural adjustments.
