What Is A Thumb Sucking Appliance?

A thumb sucking appliance is a dental device used to break a persistent thumb sucking habit in a child or adult. The appliance prevents placement of the thumb into the mouth in a comfortable and soothing position.

Your dental professional prescribes a thumb sucking appliance. This prescription can come from your general dentist, pediatric dentist, or orthodontist. At your initial consultation, a diagnosis for habitual thumb sucking must be made prior to the appliance fabrication by one of these professionals. After insertion, the habit is broken over time by a willing participant with consistent wear.

If you want your child to stop sucking thumb, then you can buy a thumb sucking guard from the amazon Canada website.
