In brief: Yes and your dentist
Tongue movement in combination with the shape of the palate and the placement of the teeth in the upper arch, influences the quality of the sounds made in speech.
Your dentist can evaluate the anatomical structures that the tongue uses to make sounds when air passes between them. The brain controls the movement of the tongue. Speech therapist teach the brain to move the tongue correctly.
