Question:
Tooth Extraction: I had a tooth extracted on upper left side of my mouth and 2 crowns on each side of extracted tooth.

I'm having a problem speaking (forming words)? any correlation I have had all sorts of tests MRI and CAT scan nothing found. ...Visitor from MA

Answer:
This is surely an odd outcome for what should be a routine tooth extraction. Two things come to mind. The uncommon passage of air could be interfering with with word formation. Your mouth and lips may not be able to compensate adequately.

Second, there may be a possibility of nerve damage that interferes with the execution of muscle based "behaviors" that was the basis for your normal speech before the extraction.

The best resource for researching this situation more accurately would be a Prosthodontist. These specialists routinely deal with a variety of speech defects that respond well to Prosthodontic treatment.
