Stop Your Child’s Thumb Sucking As Soon As Possible

If your child leaves thumb sucking before getting their permanent teeth, it will not cause any dental problems. However, it is better to start now than to wait. Permanent teeth can appear from the age of six.

Young children usually touch everything and, first of all, their hands and fingers point toward the mouth.  You can also look for thumb sucking prevention via https://www.amazon.co.uk/Age-2-7-Stop-Thumb-Sucking/dp/B00VQU2DZS.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

(1) Talk to your child first. Explain that older children do not suck their thumbs and that doing so will damage their beautiful teeth. Try sticking a sticker on their thumb to remind them of this.

(2) One ancient method is painting your child’s thumb with citron juice or a bitter solution such as Mavala Stop-Nail Biting and Thumb Sucking Prevention, which are sold in stores both online and offline for this purpose.

If your child sucks their thumbs while sleeping, try putting gloves or socks on their thumb.

(3) Another great method is to praise your child. When you see your child without thumb sucking, make a big deal out of it. You can also give a small prize if you wish.

Just make sure the process doesn’t upset your child and make it as fun and enjoyable as possible. We want to break the habit, not the spirit of your little boy.

If all else fails, contact your family dentist. They may offer an over-the-counter solution or may recommend a mouthpiece that makes the thumb sucker inaccessible.
