Will the aligners affect my speech?

You may notice a slight lisp as you adjust to wearing your aligners, since they’ll be forcing your tongue to adjust to changed spaces in your mouth. And because you hear a different resonance in your voice than everyone else does — think about how different your voice sounds on a recording — you might still feel like you have a lisp after that. But no one else will notice any difference in your speech after a few days, and they won’t know you have aligners in unless you tell them.

Still can’t find what you’re looking for?

No worries, our team of care specialists are here to help 7 days a week.
