Thumb Sucking Appliances and Education

Thumb-sucking habits are normal reflexes from birth to three years of age. The majority of children naturally outgrow their thumb-sucking habit between two and four years of age. We aim to encourage halting the habit by age three.

If you want your child to stop sucking thumb, then you can buy a thumb sucking guard from the amazon Canada website.

These complications include:

  • CROOKED TEETH
  • INCREASED JUTTING OUT OF TEETH
  • LONGER AND EARLIER BRACES AND EXPANSION APPLIANCES
  • POSTERIOR CROSSBITES
  • ANTERIOR OPEN BITE
  • NARROWED ARCHES
  • IMPACTED TEETH
  • LONG FACIAL HEIGHT BY CHANGING THE GROWTH PATTERN

The “palatal crib” appliance usually stops thumb sucking immediately. The crib will then be in place for an additional six months to confirm the discontinuation of the habit. The crib is crafted and cemented behind the teeth, making it less visible. Preventing the thumb from reaching the roof of the mouth reduces gratification, and breaks the habit very quickly.

Pacifiers are not a better alternative to thumb-sucking. They can affect the teeth essentially the same way as sucking fingers and thumbs, and sometimes have worse oral

For kids who just can't break the habit, they may decide to place an appliance at the roof of the mouth to help distract your child from putting fingers in their mouths. Depending on the child, they may just need an appliance with a metal bar across the palate of their mouth that doesn't allow for that comforting suction that thumb sucking gives them. On the other hand, there are also devices that have prongs that "poke" the finger when they try to put them in their mouth.
