Gag reflex: A dentist’s perspective
The gag reflex, which is protective in nature, occurs commonly during prosthetic or dental treatment. It is a complex physiological phenomenon and many dental practitioners are facing problems with the same. Gag reflex is a frustrating problem in many dental procedures and may result in a compromised treatment. Many management methods have been described till date for the control of gagging, but the technique or techniques used should be dictated by the cause or causes and not merely the symptoms involved. Thus it is very important that every dental practitioner should have thorough knowledge about gagging. The present article reviews the gag reflex, its etiology and management.
