Hi,
I know exactly what you are going through.  I have implants on my four front teeth on the top.  When I first got my crowns, I lisped TERRIBLY.  It seemed as though the teeth were so thick in the back my tongue they got hung up on them and would stick!

It took me a few weeks of practice, but now it only happens if I'm very tired.

I recited the alphabet and counted backwards from 70 to 60.  Eventually your tongue will get used to them and the lisp will really fade.  Only my DH can hear mine at all now.

Hang in there.  Time is your friend.

My very best to you,
Gellia
