Will Dentures Affect My Speech?

Will Dentures Affect My SpeechYes, many new denture-wearers have a difficult time talking at first, especially if you are using removable dentures.

Traditional, removable dentures have a much larger impact on your speech because they can move. While they’re designed and custom-fitted to your exact specifications, removable dentures aren’t permanently attached to your mouth.

Fixed dentures on-the-other-hand are known to improve a patient’s speech because of their stability. Fixed dentures or implant-supported dentures are anchored to your gums using implants that are surgically placed into your jawbone. These types of dentures have no plastic or metal clasps to deal with so they’ll feel more natural. While implant-supported dentures are anchored, they can be removed for cleaning.

To help make talking with your dentures easier -- practice! You may want to speak in front of a mirror, read aloud, or even sing. These practice exercises will help you learn how to form certain words, making you more comfortable speaking with your dentures.
