Your child should not be sucking their fingers or thumbs when their teeth are coming in. By this time, finger and thumb sucking should cease. Prolonged finger and thumb sucking can lead to dental/orthodontal problems that will be very costly to fix. However, we also understand that breaking these habits can be very hard, especially in young children.
We can help. Our orofacial myofunctional therapists are trained to help young children break habits that can cause oral problems later in life. No matter what age, breaking any habit is often hard. We will help you and your child transition to healthy oral habits.
Call us or make an appointment today. The longer you wait, the harder any habit is to break.
