The orthodontist isn't even that bad. He's trying to lighten the situation with a little humor. OP needs the retainer and the orthodontist can't control OP's gag reflex.

Actually they can remove more of the palette acrylic, so that it's not hitting the soft palette (which is what produces gags). As a certified removable retainer fabricator I've dealt with a lot of patients with sensitive gag reflexes. It's a simple fix that they shouldn't charge to do.

And personally, I feel rather proud to live in such a populous country full of pitifully punctual people that permeate the comments with such profanity.

I don't think retainers are supposed to cause you this much discomfort.... Maybe get a second opinion? There are so many nice words with a "p"!

You get used to it after a while. I've had three retainers and a palate widener from ages 6-18, and every one triggered a gag reflex at first, it really sucks (I'd just randomly gag), but after about a week, it settles in.

A big P does, but not a little p. Just imagine each word spelled in lower-case and you'll be fine. What did you think I was talking about?

93- I'm sorry, you either trolled me so hard it clipped my head as it went by, but I'm sure he meant the retainer (:

I knew what he meant but when I first read it I was also thinking about cutting off the part of your mouth that makes you gag (maybe I'm just a freak that way) so I decided to make a joke out of it.
