Be patient: It is very common for the speech to be affected during active Invisalign treatment. Pronouncing words that begin with the letter "S is the most common complaint. It will improve as the teeth move into alignment. Always make sure that your dentist is aware so that he/she can give you the right solution. Good luck.
