In brief: For a few days

Takes some getting used to.
By the end of a week 95% of the speech change will have disappeared, and the last 5% will disappear when expander removed. Make sure you are seeing a qualified orthodontic specialist for this procedure.

In brief: Temporaritly

Palatal expander usually causes temporarily change of speech.
The most discomfort from the palatal expander would be tongue pain caused by impingement of the tongue during functioning. All these symptoms are usually temporarily.
