Habit BreakingProlonged pacifier use, tongue thrusting, and thumb / digit sucking can all lead to untoward changes in the growth and development of the jaws, and the positioning of the teeth. However, many non-clinical factors must also be considered when addressing these habits. Our pediatric dentists can offer multiple solutions to curb these unwanted habits before they lead to further issues, from motivational protocols, to actual habit breaking appliances. Each case is based upon the individual, their presentation, and their current state of development.
