A dental-palatal prosthetic device, which had been demonstrated to aid laryngectomees who use the glossal press method of esophageal speech, was used on a patient whose primary method of air charging was bilabial plosive injection and who had a right hemiparesis of the tongue. Cointervention of a prosthodontist and a speech pathologist is described.
