Your Teeth are Importance for Speech

Open Mouth for Dental Care

Aesthetics and Function

Did you know that changes in your smile might affect your speech? Dentists can create beautiful smiles, but without a thorough understanding of important functional principles, a smile makeover can lead to unwanted changes in speech and sore facial muscles.

  • The chewing system is also the organ of speech.
  • Phonetic sounds are actually shaped mechanically by various combinations of teeth, lips, and tongue.
  • The F, V, S, T, and E sounds can all be impacted by the relationship of the lips and the teeth.

The Right Smile for You

It is critical for the dentist to accurately determine the lip shape and teeth position that is compatible with making these sounds. A mismatch between lips and teeth will result in a tired face when talking a lot or facial fatigue at the end of the day.

One of the most common ways this principle is violated is making the upper front teeth too long. Not having enough space causes the teeth to bump into each other.

Creating a beautiful smile can have many negative impacts if the proper functioning of the teeth is not achieved. But when done correctly, changes to the front teeth can have a profoundly positive impact on the smile and overall facial appearance.

You can be assured that your Dawson-trained dentist, Dr. Nathan Lim will give you a beautiful smile without compromising your speech!
