Thumb Sucking Therapy

Parents often worry that thumb-sucking habits will negatively impact their children’s oral health. Thumb-sucking will only have adverse effects if it continues beyond the age of three years old. If thumb-sucking persists beyond this age, it can prevent children’s teeth from biting together properly, and intervention may be necessary.

When your child is old enough to understand the adverse effects of thumb-sucking, our expert team can help them understand why they need to stop the habit. Our team can also recommend ways to change your child’s habits, including appliances that interfere with sucking and help prevent long-term damage.
