When you first start wearing your Invisalign aligners, you might notice a slight effect on your speech, causing a minor lisp or a change in the pronunciation of certain words. This is because your tongue needs time to adjust to the new appliance in your mouth.
However, don’t worry! This is typically temporary and most people adjust quickly, usually within a few days to a week. Practising speaking, reading out loud, or repeating tricky words can help speed up this adjustment period.
Invisalign aligners are customised to fit your teeth snugly. So, once you’re used to them, they should have minimal impact on your speech. If you continue to experience difficulties, don’t hesitate to consult with your dentist or orthodontist. They can provide advice and solutions personalised to your situation.
