Habit Appliance

Oral and digit habits such as; thumb, finger, tongue and pacifier sucking can have adverse effects on a child’s developing dentition and oral facial muscles. Children must be weaned off of these habits when they are emotionally and developmentally ready.

 

If these problems are corrected early (by age 3-4) the child can avoid long term orthodontic treatment. Selection of the appliance to reeducate the tongue and the muscles depends on the particular oral problem and will be individually designed to help the child stop their oral habits.
