Did shortening the upper denture stop the gag reflex? I have the same issue with excessive saliva that causes me to gag. I feel the back par of the denture to be too thick or too long.

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. Welcome to the message board! In time, I'm sure you'll get used to your new denture, but I know right now it must be uncomfortable to feel like you have a sore throat. Dentures can cause a sore throat if they're too long, so be sure to mention your sore throat to your dentist. Even though your denture has already been shortened once, your dentist can re-check the length to determine if it needs to be shortened a bit more.
Sore spots are common, but they typically won't go away on their own. Your dentist should evaluate the sores on the roof of your mouth to determine what's causing them. It could be that a reline or another adjustment will eliminate the sore spots. Instead of waiting for your next scheduled appointment, see if you can get an appointment within the next day or two, so you can get relief as soon as possible.
Post again to let us know how it goes!
