FAQ:  Speech Articulation Problems

Speech Articulation Problems Ask The Dentist Ara Nazarian Question:
I just received my top implants with temp gluing. I am in the audio narrating business and having problems with speech lisping.

My implants are very heavy in weight and I heard that they are all made of Titanium ... is this normal? ...Visitor from CA

Many implant devices are made of titanium. The abutments (interface between the crown and implant post) might also be made of titanium, precious metal alloys, zirconia or porcelain.

The lisping issue, if it persists, may suggest possible technical errors. There are specific size and spacing relationships that should be monitored to assure the ability to make several different speech sounds.

A Nazarian, DDS
