If you have a bad gag reflex how do you brush the back of your tongue without puking?
It's hard for me to brush my back teeth because of my gag reflex. I still do it (LOL!), and I also brush my tongue, but I don't brush the very back of my tongue.
i usually figure i can gag at least 3 times without puking so i try to get my tongue as fast as i can. it is very hard for me i have a terrible gag reflex, like i can barely use a straw!

I have a very bad gag reflex. I always gag when I'm brushing my tongue and sometimes my very back teeth. The only time the gagging actually made me puke was when I was pregnant though.
I have a really bad gag reflex...but making an effort to breathe through your nose while brushing helps some! Its hard...and doesn't completely stop it, but it helps some!
i always gag when brushing my tongue.
i just do it really quick! lol. ill gag a couple times. i usually dont puke though.
The only time I have ever had a gag reflex while brushing my teeth was when I was preggo, yeah well guess what? My gag reflex started a couple days ago. I just got put on nuvaring but I have been on antibiotics this month for a sinus infection so 2 strikes against me. Im hoping Im not preggo, but if I am it wouldn't even show up on a test for another week. I guess I will find out then.

Anyone try a tongue scraper instead ?
I got me a tongue scraper. It looks gnarly, but it works! Sometimes I still gag on it, but the trick is to think about something other than what you are doing. I also dont have a problem with gargling, so I gargle listerine also.
