The placement of lingual braces can cause some difficulty in speaking. Since your tongue and the back of your teeth work together when speaking, you might find yourself speaking with a minor lisp until you adjust to your new braces.

You will experience some discomfort with all orthodontic treatment, but lingual braces are no different than metal braces as far as discomfort goes.
