Did you know that if your child continues to suck his or her thumb after the permanent teeth have come in, it can cause problems with tooth alignment and your child’s bite? The frequency, duration and intensity of a habit will determine whether or not dental problems may result. Children who rest their thumbs passively in their mouths are less likely to have difficulty than those who vigorously suck their thumbs. If you are worried about your child’s sucking habits, talk to your pediatric dentist at Lasky Pediatric Dental Group. Drs. Lasky and Harmer are here to help.
