ClearCorrect may have a mild impact on speech while your tongue adjusts to the aligners. However, any lisping should be temporary and easy to overcome with simple exercises performed during the initial “getting used to” period. During the course of your ClearCorrect treatment, Austin cosmetic dentist Dr. John Schmid will address any concerns you have over speech issues and provide you with the tools you need to overcome them in the shortest period possible.
ClearCorrect will not impact the speech of every user, but even in cases where it does, the benefits offered by this orthodontic option far outweigh any temporary inconveniences. It is good to remember that braces can also impede speech, and treatment with this more traditional option takes longer, is more uncomfortable, and comes with a host of limitations and hindrances. In comparison, ClearCorrect offers a shorter treatment period with fewer risks of discomfort and the added advantage of being able to remove aligners for eating and tooth cleaning.
If your smile requires orthodontic treatment for complete correction, ClearCorrect offers a comfortable, reliable, and more convenient solution. During your orthodontic consultation at our Austin office, Dr. Schmid can discuss these and other benefits in greater detail to help make sure you are selecting the option that will produce the most desirable results.
