Hi..it can be managed properly if doctor knows how to take impression. He can numb the soft and hard palate by anesthesia spray and then take impression. It won't cause gagging. A fast setting alginate is best to tackle gagging as well. Regards

Hi..we do have fast setting alginates especially used for orthodontic purposes...u may also explain your gagging issue and discuss with your specialist ....you can take an anti vomitting tablet prior to the impression ...or sometimes if a local anesthetic is sprayed onto the palate the gag reflex is subdued ...hope this helps

Silicone impression causes less gagging reflex as compared to alginate material. In case of severe one, palate can be made free as it is of less value especially in orthodontic cases.
