The positioning of the tongue and the lips is key for clear speaking. Unfortunately, both can be compromised by an ill-fitting denture. Many denture wearers are often unaware of the fact that their speech has even changed. They don’t realize that their ill-fitting, unstable dentures have altered their phonetics and speech patterns. In many cases, this change in voice is the giveaway that they’re wearing dentures.
