We recently had a patient in the office for his 6 month cleaning.
He’s been wanting to get his teeth straightened for a while, but has been worried that it might affect his speaking ability.
This particular patient is in sales and has to do a lot of speaking.
He’s concerned that he will be talking funny and not look professional.
He was also slightly concerned with the appearance of the Invisalign trays, and that they might be noticeable in his mouth.
The truth is, in the beginning, your speech is affected with the Invisalign trays in your mouth.
Within a week, you become used to them, and your mouth and tongue adjust accordingly. Your speech is back to normal.
As for be able to tell if the trays are in the mouth, most people will not be able to tell.
As a dentist, I sometimes have a difficult time noticing if the patient is wearing their trays.
This is the key to having Invisalign being undetected.
Many times we create scenarios in our head, that are simply not true or over exaggerated in our heads. I know… I do it all the time.
And 99.999% of the time I’m WRONG.
