Does Thumb Sucking Affect My Little Hero’s Teeth?

While thumb sucking can be extremely relaxing to our little ones, it can potentially put a damper on their smile. Thumb or finger sucking, depending on its intensity and the proximity of permanent teeth, can often affect your Little Hero’s teeth alignment and mouth growth. Some parents might find that the use of pacifiers can be easier to break, however, keep in mind that their use can also come with the same effects as thumb sucking. Be patient with your Little Hero and remember that children usually stop the habit between ages two and four.
