    Gagging is one of the complications faced by the dentist and the patient during a dental procedure. It can be due to physiological or psychological factors. The stimulation of the gagging reflex, or more accurately, the vomiting reflex, is a special problem in prosthodontic service. In daily practices, dentists routinely encounter many patients who have extreme oral sensitivity by which they are not capable to bear any foreign body in the oral cavity; such gagging patient seeks to delay needed treatment or to avoid it entirely until it is too late for the dental therapy to exert its maximum beneficial effects. The normal gag reflex is a defensive mechanism for the survival that is controlled mainly by parasympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system. However, it can be an acquired, adapted by various stimuli such as visual, olfactory, acoustic, psychic, chemical, or toxic transmitted through the blood flow or the cerebrospinal fluid. This article describes a review of the management of patients with gagging and includes various strategies to assist clinicians.
