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?

#19, you mean Charlie Brown and Lucy and Linus? You might just be allergic to Snoopy's dander or Pig Pen's dust.

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.
