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.

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.

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.
