Habit Breaking Appliances for Your Child

Does your child still suck his or her thumb? It’s very common for children have oral habits such as thumb sucking, nail biting, lip biting, and tongue jerking. While common, these habits can have a serious negative impact on your child’s orthodontic health.

The solutions we have available are called Habit Breaking Appliances. There are two types of appliances, fixed and removable. The equipment functions by preventing the thumb from reaching the roof of the mouth. While this equipment is effective, it will not negatively impact your child or cause discomfort. After a consultation and treatment plan, we would install the equipment that is right for your child. Following installation, the progression of the habit will be assessed every six months.
