Injuries or Chronic Illnesses

Injuries or chronic illnesses that affect the mouth can alter oral structure and function, resulting in impaired speech production. Examples of such injuries and illnesses include a car accident during which the teeth and tongue were damaged, or certain oral cancers that affected the lips, tongue, or cheeks.

 

Those who have experienced these conditions may have to “re-learn” proper oral posturing for speech, or how to adjust their posturing to accommodate any changes in their oral structure.

 

At Cornerstone Speech & Language, we can help those who have suffered through an illness or injury regain confidence in their speech by incorporating oral function therapy into the recovery process.
