I had a slight lisp before braces and it has gotten quite worse since getting them on.

None with braces, but when I got my retainers - sluuuurp.

My orthodontist was sort of annoying in the way retention phase worked. I got my braces off, then had molds done, then was told to pick up my retainers 3 weeks later and to wear them 24/7 for a week. It was embarrassing because everyone had just gotten used to my metal-free smile. I tried at first to go about my day as normal, but when coworkers couldn’t understand me, I shut up for the week, and think I became permanently quieter once I was done with daytime retainer wear.

If you have any questions, don‘t hesitate to ask me  ;)
I love talking about braces.

Towards the end of your other post you mention that she's also enjoying herself and is constantly asking for more. Don't you think that that's a bit antithetical to the torture and humiliation she's going through?

I love the idea of appliances so invasive they cause severe speech impediments, but I'd rather they be forced onto the victim instead. Don't you reckon the suffering is more authentic that way?

I find lisps on others pretty cute, especially if it's caused by braces or other appliances. Maybe it's the sense that they don't have full control over their voice.

I've only experienced fixed braces and headgear myself and although it was awkward in my mouth, it didn't (really) impede my speech.

I was intrigued when I learned about the tongue crib feature. I imagine a treatment plan that involves moving the crib further and further (or larger and larger) to essentialy make it more and more difficult to talk.

I'm curious how a 'regular' retainer compares to a tongue crib and other features that makes it harder to speak?

Suggestion: go to any local ortho and say that you lost your retainer and ask if they can make you a new one. Mention, by the way, that your old orthodontist told you you thrusted your tongue in your sleep and gave you a retainer with some metal bars hanging down from behind the front teeth. They’ll know what you mean :)

I had lisps when my ortho putted me bite blocks in my canines and more when that was changed to frontal teeth. Also when I had to wear elastics from lingual surface of my bottom canines and premolar to outside of my canines

I have hawley retainers and I love the way effect my speech. My lisp has improved after wearing over time. I get a great kick out of wearing them out in public because of the lisp. I had full metal braces as an adult because of overcrowding but I really wanted them. I didn’t get any appliances but I often imagined getting headgear, a tongue crib And expander.

I can say I did not at all enjoy having a lisp myself way back when.  9 months with an upper expander, and I still wasn't used to talking.  Same with my retainers, I never got completely over the lisp while wearing them.

Oh thank you, that's a great idea. I'll try that.

I feel like this would make for a great story where the unlucky individual receives a much more severe retainer than the one they lost. Too bad the orthodontist that initially prescribed the retainer is no longer in business.
