General Info about Thumb Sucking

Thumb sucking in children has always caused embarrassment to many parents. The parents were more concerned over the social embarrassment caused by this habit rather than the actual physical damage caused by it.

This silly habit as it appears to many parents not only causes abnormally arranged teeth but also implicates the mental state of the child.
