Can you Talk Normal With Dentures?


Posted on 5/1/2024 by Weo Admin
Image of dentures in a glass of water. If you are considering putting on dentures, it is common to wonder how it will affect your talking habits. The good news is that with practice, you can speak clearly. When you first start using dentures, your voice might sound a bit different. That is because you usually hear your voice through the vibrations in your jaw and skull. Dentures can make the sound a bit different, but there is no need to worry because only you will notice the change.

How Do Dentures Affect Speech?


At first, wearing dentures might make you feel a bit uneasy, especially when talking in front of people. Saying certain words, especially those with s or f sounds, could be tricky. Sometimes, dentures might click or move around while you speak. But do not worry, as lots of people face these challenges at the start, and with practice, it gets better.

Surprisingly, dentures can also make your speech better. They can help fix lisps or any issues you had with speaking and pronouncing words because of missing teeth. So, even though it might feel awkward at first, with time and practice, dentures can improve how you speak.

Will Dentures Cause Slurred Speech?


When you first start wearing dentures, you might notice some challenges like lisping, slurred speech, or more saliva than usual. But there is no need to worry too much because these problems usually go away as you get used to your new teeth. However, if your dentures are not made just right - like if the teeth are too short or too long, or if they feel too big in your mouth - that can make it tricky for your tongue to make the right sounds when you talk. So, it is important to make sure your dentures fit well to avoid these issues.

After wearing dentures consistently, you will be able to talk normally after 15-30 days. For more information, ensure that you contact us, and we will offer proper guidance on dentures and tips to care for them.
