Slight lisp after a broken molar

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: WpaG45  (5 years ago)
Hello!

My upper right first molar was decayed and broke off two months ago. I have no pain in the tooth but I acquired a lisp, which was very noticeable. I had the tooth extracted one week ago and it seemed my problem with lisp got worse. Does anyone have any ideas on how can I resolve this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Never heard of lisp with a 1st molar extraction. But if you are convinced this is what is causing it, the remedy is to replace the molar, preferably with a bone graft, implant, and implant crown.
