Severe Gag Reflex

Schedule Consultation

A gag reflex is a physical reaction meant to prevent choking or blockages of the airway. For some, a sensitive or severe gag reflex can make it difficult to undergo dental treatments to maintain their oral health. If you have had trouble in the past with gagging during dental procedures, there are options to help you relax and get the dental care you need. The Dentist Centers offer gentle dental care for those with an over-active gag reflex at our clinics in Sandy Springs and Alpharetta.

Most dental procedures require access to the mouth for extended periods of time. For those with a severe gag reflex, the dental tools used and the accumulation of saliva can trigger a gagging response. This can be dangerous during certain dental procedures and is very uncomfortable for the patient. The constant stopping also lengthens the time needed for even routine treatments. Our team at The Dentist Centers has solutions to help our patients with an over-active gag reflex relax. We can help patients feel more comfortable during their visits, improving their experience and expediting their treatments.

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Chris G.

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Thomas J.

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

Michael S.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
