I have a dental prosthetic in the roof of my mouth called an obturator. it fills in a good sized hole and helps prevent fluids and food from going up into my sinuses. I have been dealing with a cold this past week where I have been having to do a lot of vomiting. I was just wondering, if you have something similar (or even a denture)...do you leave it in when you throw up, or do you take it out first? It has become embarrassing for me to run to the bathroom knowing I am going to be sick while trying to decide if I should just leave it in, or take it out.
