Habit Therapy (Thumb Sucking and Teeth Health)
Sucking is a perfectly natural reflex and can even begin in the womb. Young children can find it relaxing and comforting which is why so many sucking their thumb or finger when falling asleep. Most children will naturally stop sucking their thumb between the age of two and four years old. This habit is perfectly harmless during the first two or three years of life, while a child still has their baby teeth and before the adult teeth begin to erupt. Kids oral habits become more of a problem when they continue into early childhood, and they can affect the development of the teeth and jaws.

How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more
