Is Speaking with New Dentures Something You Can Prepare For?

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Dr. Shiotsu
Is Speaking with New Dentures Something You Can Prepare For?If you are having trouble speaking with your new dentures, you can put in place measures that will help you get accustomed to them. It takes time for you to get used to talking with your new dentures; however, you can use techniques to improve your speech and make it possible to speak confidently.

Read Out Loud

The most reliable way you can improve your speech with new dentures is by reading out loud. If you read out to yourself, a family member, or a friend, this exercise will significantly expand the range of words you can pronounce comfortably. You can read a newspaper, your favorite novel, or poetry tongue twisters.

Talk to a Loved One

You can also practice talking with your new dentures by having regular conversations with your loved ones. Given their close relationship with you, they are more likely to understand what you are saying even when you struggle. Speaking to them will help you build confidence, especially during the first weeks of wearing dentures. Make sure that you have regular and consistent conversations with loved ones for the best results.

Speak Slowly

If you are a fast speaker, you might experience challenges with your new dentures. You are more likely to hear clicking noises in between words when speaking fast. This is why you should slow down your speech and help keep your dentures in place. Doing so will also help eliminate unwanted noises. Furthermore, if you are having challenges with slipping dentures, you can use an adhesive that will help prevent them from regular movement.

Call Customer Care

One of the most reliable ways of improving your speech with new dentures is by calling customer care service lines. This will force you to articulate words clearly for better understanding. Contact our offices for more information on how to improve speech with new dentures.
