The acoustic parameters for analysing speech with complete dentures
Keywords:Acoustic Analysis, Speech Articulation, Resonance, Formant, Palatal Augmentation
The patients those who wear dentures have difficulty in speech becomes a major concern. Various studies were provided to improve speech with various technique, suggestions and conclusions but the better or exact test is to analyses the speech with complete dentures. Here we like to give brief details on understanding about proper knowledge on speech production, perception and the acoustic features and useful parameters to analyses these acoustic features with the quality of speech in denture wearers.
