Thumbsucking or Pacifier Use

Thumbsucking or Pacifier Use



Child sucking thumb

Many babies like to suck on a pacifier, their thumb, or a finger to soothe themselves. During infancy, these methods aren’t necessarily harmful; however, as your child grows into toddlerhood, it becomes increasingly important to find other self-soothing techniques. Sucking their thumb, for example, can affect their teeth and their bite and create alignment problems down the road. At their next appointment, we can provide tips for ending these habits and replacing them with healthier ones.
