Re: Gagging while brushing teeth?
There are several things he can try. Try using a smaller toothbrush such as a child's size. Tell him to do his best in the morning and do a real thorough job at night. Our gag reflex is more active in the morning. Try rinsing his mouth out with mouth wash before he brushes. That may help. He can also try one of those throat spray for sore throat that has a numbing incredient in there such as lidocaine or something in the caine family of ingredient. Spray his throat to numb it and then brush. And lastly, try using an electric toothbrush. That seems to help a lot of ppl. The reason we gag when brushing is because of the back and forth motion we do with the toothbrush. The electric toothbrush spins very fast. All he has to do is hold it in place.
