Thumb and Finger Sucking

Sucking is a natural reflex and infants and young children may use fingers or thumbs on which to suck. If this persists beyond the eruption of the permanent teeth it can cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and tooth alignment. If you have any concerns about thumb sucking, consult us about ways your child can stop thumb sucking.
