Re: I Cannot Make The Proper "s" Sound

I would search under speech pathology or therapy or seek treatment from a speech therapist. There are some exercises that help retrain the tongue and facial muscles - also mention it to your dentist as sometimes this is related to the positioning of the back of the upper front teeth and how the tongue uses them when speeking - sometimes putting some bonding material behind them may help you reach or press against them more firmly allowing you to enunciate correctly.
