    Hi Jackie. I can certainly empathise with your concerns. If its the impressions you are concerned about you have a couple of options. Sedation will make the procedure comfortable for you alternatively acupuncture can be used. Acupuncture can totally get rid of the gag reflex in 9 out of 10 clients. From what I have read I would speak to your dentist about sedation.

    It may be possible to add the tooth onto your existing denture, again your dentist would be the best to advise as they know the condition of your existing denture

    Hope this helps
