hi all, i remember going to the dentist when i was a kid only once, so when i was 16 i went alone, had 2 back teeth out with 4 injections (which i hate), my gums bled for about 3 days :( found out later the dentist got closed down cus he was a butcher). i am a total dentophobic but i had two teeth with holes in & went to another dentist when i ws 30, got 1 tooth out, had mercury fillings replced with white ones all sorted ......until the annual checkup came thrugh..couldn't do it :( Anyway i had to go to dentist in jan 2012 (47 now) as i'd had an abcess for about a year & was in soo much pain, turned out i had to have my 2 front teeth out, it didn't bother me at the time cos i hated them anyway but i hate the dentures, they make me gag all the time, they spend more time in my pocket than my mouth. can someone plzzzzzzzzzzzz help me??????

Okay.................
One denture or both?
I assume it is the top so
1. does it fit with good retention?
2. It may be too far back on your soft palate(over extended)
3. Are you a gagger in general?
