Is there a possibility of speech problem with braces?

Posted April 10, 2017 - 2:21am

Hey, I have an eleven-year-old son. With the help of a dentist in Houston, my son is about to get the six month braces( )next week. But he is competing for a speech competition which is scheduled for next month and I fear that if there will be any difficulty in speaking with dental braces. I don’t want his confidence to get affected. I also read online that in some cases, there is a possibility of speech problems with braces. Is it true? Has anyone experienced it? Should my son get the braces after the speech contest? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
