Thumb Sucking

Thumb Sucking and its Consequences

Although thumb sucking in infants is normal, it becomes problematic beyond 5 years old, or when permanent teeth emerge. Constant thumb sucking may bring about the following problems:

  1. Protruding upper teeth (commonly known as buck teeth)
  2. Pronunciation difficulties
  3. Deepened roof of the mouth
  4. Misalignment of upper and lower jaws
  5. Irritated and sometimes infected thumbs

Let our experts determine the causes of your child’s thumb sucking habit, and look at different options to prevent thumb sucking related problems from developing.
