Abstract

A 51-year-old woman needed a full maxillary denture. Because of her hypersensitive gag reflex, she was unable to tolerate having one made, and it appeared that she might not be able to tolerate wearing it if she had one. The patient was asked to help select the most desirable images and suggestions for use in hypnotherapy. The dental treatment and desensitization of the gag reflex progressed concurrently, thus reducing the total time of treatment.
