Invisalign And Speech Issues: How To Overcome A Lisp With Dental Aligners
For some patients with clear dental aligners, the placement over the teeth can cause some issues with moving the tongue normally. This, in turn, can impact speech and cause problems talking. In one study, a little over half of users -- 54 percent -- said they experienced some speech impairment when they first used dental aligners. Fortunately, the problem is usually temporary. In fact, 93 percent of all wearers report that they either had no issues or quickly returned to normal speech patterns.
