   # When the denture border is overextended on posterior region, common complaint by the patient is:
A. Improper retention
B. Difficulty in swallowing 
C. Difficulty in speech
D. Excess salivation



The correct answer is A. Improper retention. 

Persistent gagging can occur due to overextended denture borders especially in the posterior part of maxillary denture and the distolingual part of mandibular denture. Gagging usually produces displacement of the denture.

When the denture border is overextended on distolingual region, difficulty in swallowing occurs. The overextension in the distolingual sulcus should be corrected.
