Abstract: This is the second-part of a two-part series on gagging patients. The first paper discussed the aetiology of gagging and diagnosing the severity of the condition. This paper will investigate the different management approaches which can be considered for patients who suffer from an exaggerated gag reflex.

Clinical relevance: Once the gagging patient has been successfully diagnosed, it is important to consider the most appropriate treatment options. No two cases are alike, therefore, the clinician must carefully tailor the treatment plan for each patient, as with any other form of dental treatment.

Objective: To understand the various interventions which can be used to manage the gagging response successfully and recognize when the condition requires referral for additional support.
