The aim of this review is to assess the effects of behavioural techniques, pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for management of gagging in patients undergoing dental procedures.
As the authors note gaging-related problems contributed to about 20% of dental avoidance cases and a wide range of methods have been describe for management of the gaging patients. Consequently a review of this area will help guide clinical decision making.
