Abstract

Patient gagging is a common problem during dental procedures such as maxillary impression making. This clinical report describes the use of a chairside intraoral scanner for a patient with a hypersensitive gag reflex. The technique proved to be a more comfortable alternative for the patient and an accurate method for the clinician to capture both hard and soft tissue detail for the fabrication of a definitive obturator.
