Finger and thumb sucking, lip biting and nail biting can negatively affect the shape of the palate (roof of the mouth), result in low tongue posture, and affect how the teeth line up. The risk of dental problems is related to how often, how long and how intensely your child sucks on his or her thumb.

There are steps you can take now to help your child begin to reduce the habit. If your child is 5 or older and still habit sucking, call today and we can work together to implement an elimination program with a positive approach focusing on building your child's confidence!
