One of the major concerns that our patients share is the impact on speech after treatment. When you have damaged or missing teeth, your mouth adapts to reform letters and words. Once those missing teeth are replaced, you will need to relearn speech patterns.

Some patients can adapt instantly, while others spend up to a month to lose temporary speech impediments. The important thing to remember is that your implants are permanent and will provide a range of benefits, whereas any issues with speaking are fleeting.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures can cause permanent speech challenges. Taking a prosthesis out every night can result in a period of adjustment in the morning. You also have to consider that the gums and mouth will change in shape over time, which impacts how you speak.

A permanent prosthesis, such as dental implants, help the mouth maintain its natural shape. Once you conquer the changes in speech patterns, the challenge is over. You can confidently engage with friends, family and colleagues without fear of slurring your words.

Human Adaptability

As a species, we are designed to deal with adaptability. You may initially feel like your speech is permanently damaged. However, most people quickly recognize any negative changes and make corrections. Speaking slowly can help you adjust to your new dental implants and converse without concern.

Your dental implants are designed to mimic natural teeth. If you have suffered from tooth loss over a long period, the mouth will adapt to new speech patterns. The same principle applies to replacing a damaged or missing tooth.

Aesthetic Appeal

Another thing to consider is the importance of aesthetics versus speech. Many of your friends and family will focus more on your new smile than how you sound when speaking. The former is potentially permanent, whereas the latter will adjust within a relatively short period of time.

Any time you are concerned about your speech, look in the mirror and smile. Your new teeth could open doors to personal and professional opportunities. Call Ora Dental Implant Studio if you have any further questions about recovery challenges after treatment.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
