Does your child have difficulty breaking a habit of thumb or finger sucking? This is a normal occurrence for children under the age of 4, and many children cease this habit by the time they turn 4 years old. Sometimes, however, children may persist in these habits as they grow older, often causing significant damage to their smile.

Thumb sucking is natural for infants and young children who may use their fingers or pacifiers as a means to help them feel more secure. When a child continues to suck on a pacifier or their thumb as their permanent front teeth start to emerge, their smile is put at risk for issues like teeth misalignment and improper bite.

To learn more about thumb sucking, we invite you to contact our team today at 561-737-3633 and request a visit with our dentist in Boynton Beach, Florida. Dr. Lisa Feldman will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
