Will dentures affect my speech?

At the beginning, you may encounter a slight difference in your speech. You may experience slurring, lisping or in some instances excessive salivation but once you get used to the dentures these speech issues will be resolve.

Reading loudly is a great exercise to quickly restore normal speech.


Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
