Do snap in dentures affect my speech? This is one of the most common questions we have seen in snap in dentures that our patients write to us and we want to talk to you about it. Perhaps you now have the same questions and you are still trying to decide whether getting snap in dentures or not and this might help you to decide.
If it affects your speech depends on each particular case. Sometimes it is just a little bit, sometimes there is a lot of difference. Perhaps you will notice it very quickly or perhaps you won’t until some of your friends say that your voice and the way you speak has changed. But you don’t need to worry about it and here we are going to tell you why.
You decided to get snap in dentures in the first place because some or most of your teeth were missing or severe damaged, right? So the reason why your speaking is going to change will be because it was already modified when you lost more than one tooth and you got used to that change and then you lost other and other and your voice kept changing until you weren’t completely sure what your voice was like in the first place.
So with snap in dentures you will have your full teeth and there won’t be spaces that alter the sound of your voice, so you might return to hear the original voice you had before you lost your teeth. It will take some time for you to get used to your new snap in dentures in your mouth, but normally in a short period of time people start speaking as they used to before all teeth were gone. This are great news for people who had slurry speech because of old bulky dentures. You can tell them goodbye and get snap in dentures without roof of the palate instead.
