could bad teeth cause speech problems?

Probably not: Most likely "bad teeth" will not cause a speech problem. It is possible that an "bad" bite--or misaligned teeth can effect speech. Ask you dentist if any of the teeth that are "bad" are the cause.

Of course: Teeth misalignment or teeth that do not have the proper normal bite is one of the many causes of speech impediments. See your orthodontist and speech therapist for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
