Thumb Sucking Habits

Thumb sucking leads to a high chance of “open bite” which is difficult to correct.

Dummy use should be curbed from 12 months of age as long term use may lead to:
  • Incorrect position of upper teeth
  • Mouth breathing and long term dribbling
  • Speech and language problems
  • Tooth decay
Dummy Tips
  • Never dip dummies in sweet things such as honey, jams or syrups – this can lead to rapid tooth decay.
  • Avoid sucking on your child’s dummy as bacteria will spread from your mouth to your child’s.
  • Follow good hygiene procedures, clean and sterilise your baby’s dummy every day.
