Although thumb sucking is a natural and healthy behaviour in babies, it can result in the development of a malocclusion once the permanent teeth begin to erupt.
Orthodontists sometimes apply TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices) to help make the tooth movement process go more quickly and comfortably.
Tongue thrusting is an orofacial muscular imbalance in which the tongue protrudes through the anterior incisors during speech, swallowing, and even when the tongue is at rest. It can cause serious orthodontic problems if unaddressed.
