“Dr. Huq, should I worry about thumb or finger sucking?”

Thumb sucking is perfectly normal for infants; most stop by the age of two. Prolonged (beyond age 5 or 6 years) thumb sucking can create crowded, crooked teeth or bite problems. At Access Dental we will be glad to suggest ways to address a prolonged thumb-sucking habit.
