Well, : Well, your friend has a few problems. Firstly, he needs to go back to the dentist to take care of the oronasal communication. This cannot stay this way and may need to be surgically repaired. He may be gagging for a number of reasons: the back of the denture may be a bit too long, or he just needs a little time to get use to it. With the denture moving and falling he will have a very hard time being comfortable. With the oronasal communication, there will be no way to establish suction to hold the denture in place. That needs to be addressed first, then when that has healed, the denture can be modified to be more comfortable. Hope this info helps. ...Read more
