Thumb Sucking

Hall Dental, in Lethbridge, Alberta can help break the thumb sucking habitAt Hall Dental, you'll find proven recommendations on how to break childhood habits like thumb sucking.


Breaking the Habit

As a parent, you already know that thumb sucking in babies and young children is a normal self-soothing behaviour. While most children typically out grow this habit, some don't.

It's best to get your child to stop sucking before their permanent teeth come in (generally by age 5).

If you are having trouble encouraging your child to break this habit, we can create a dental appliance, which is cemented behind your child's front teeth to discourage thumb sucking. The appliance is not uncomfortable for your child, but it makes the act of thumb sucking less enjoyable.
