Will Invisalign Affect My Speech?

For those of you who have adjusted their teeth with either braces or retainers, you may have experienced difficulty pronouncing certain words. Even moving your mouth can feel a bit strange due to the new restrictions caused by braces or Invisalign.

The major difference between Invisalign and braces is that you are less likely to experience puffy, irritated gums or uncomfortable soreness that further affects your speech. However, you may have a slight lisp the first couple of days of your Invisalign treatment.  During performances, presentations or public speaking, you can easily remove your Invisalign and put them back in immediately after.

The Advantages of Invisalign

  • You may eat whatever foods you want
  • Brush and  floss your teeth normally
  • Consists of smooth, plastic rather than sharp metal
  • Office visits are only every four to six weeks
