Thumb Sucking Intervention: Part II

Thumb Sucking Part Two:

In part one, Nancy discussed thumb sucking, how it can affect your oral health, and different products and treatments that can help break the habits.

As dental professionals, we usually are the ones to help parents and patients by suggesting different thumb-sucking remedies before reaching professional intervention. This segment shares personal experiences from fellow dental professionals/BURST ambassadors who have dealt with or are currently going through different remedies to break the thumb sucking habit.

What will it take to give up thumb sucking? Can it be done without professional intervention? Madison doesn’t want horse teeth…. Gina’s girls exchanged their comfort silkies for a special gift at the dentist, and Jessica experienced enough in her younger years to be inspired to become a dental hygienist! Nancy shares videos/photos from fellow Dental Hygienists who have experienced and dealt with thumb sucking habits personally. ​
