Can Invisalign Affect the Way You Speak?

01/05/2023

If you’re considering Invisalign as a discreet option for straightening your teeth, you may be concerned about the way that they could affect your speech, or make it obvious that you are wearing clear braces. It’s a reasonable worry to have in relation to orthodontic treatment. However, the truth is that any dental or orthodontic device you have in your mouth has the potential to alter how you speak. Fortunately, any problems with Invisalign are typically minor and simple to fix! Continue reading to learn what to anticipate from this therapy and how to lessen any potential difficulties with speech.

Improving Speech Impediment: How to Do It

One of the best things about Invisalign is that any alterations in speech may be fixed in only a matter of days. Although your first inclination might be to speak as little as possible to mask a speech impediment, frequent speaking is the solution! What you can do to adjust more rapidly is as follows:
• Try reading aloud to yourself (or others) as you work on your pronunciation and enunciation of the words you find difficult.
• Increase your communication with friends and family.

What if I still have a speech impediment?

During the adjustment period, most patients may temporarily develop lisps. If it persists for longer than a few weeks, though, it can be cause for concern. Contact your dentist or orthodontist if you’ve already tried the suggestions mentioned above and your speech hasn’t improved. It might be a sign that the mould doesn’t fit properly or isn’t placed properly.

Don’t worry if you’re worried that Invisalign will alter your speech; these effects are temporary and are easily reversible by using the advice above. Above all, the advantages of this therapy outweigh the minor speech changes.
