MY CHILD SUCKS THEIR THUMB. WILL IT AFFECT THEIR ORAL HEALTH?

Many children suck their thumb (or other fingers) as babies, and at this stage, it’s a relatively harmless habit. However, if your son or daughter is continuing to suck after they’ve passed the age of four and permanent teeth have begun erupting (or if they’re sucking in an overly aggressive fashion), let our doctors know so that we can inspect their smile and determine whether or not any damage is occurring. We have various methods to assist them in discontinuing their habit with ease and excitement.
