Thumb-sucking is a natural behavioural instinct for babies. Many infants begin sucking their thumbs or using pacifiers within three months of birth, and thumb-sucking may continue through the toddler years. Neither habit generally poses a dental problem if it is discontinued before the child’s first permanent teeth erupt. Visit our clinic to consult with our dentist for child dental care if your child continues to follow the habit.
