Why do they make me feel I want to gag when I have both sets in my mouth?

Probally because you have never had all that plastic in your mouth before and it goes pretty far back on the upper palate. I have had mine 3 months now and I still gag sometimes...it gets better as you get used to them.

James, Your dentist may need to cut the back of the palate of your upper denture shorter to stop the ''gag reflex''... It's not unusual, but it can be FIXED.... Sometimes, you may feel like you have a sore throat too, but feel totally fine,... the Dentist can FIX that too... Good Luck James, keep updating on your progress too....
