Abstract

Gagging is the most common protective reflex that prevents the foreign bodies from entering trachea. However, some patients exhibit abnormally active gag reflex which makes the denture fabrication and use difficult. This article describes an innovative method of managing such patients by the use of magnetic assembly in fabrication of palateless over denture on retained teeth thereby improving tolerance towards the intraoral prosthesis.
