What is a nasal obturator (speech device)?
A nasal obturator is a simple prosthetic device which is placed directly in the nose to stop nasal escape of air. The aim is to make speaking easier and clearer.
Why do I need a nasal obturator?
You find speaking clearly difficult because your speech has an excessively nasal tone. This is caused by air escaping into your nose due to a condition called velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD). You may have discussed other treatment options with your medical team and they have suggested that a nasal obturator will improve your speech.
