How it works

From birth, children have a natural born instinct to suck in order to get nourishment. This sucking feeling, or suction, over time becomes associated with warmth and comfort, and by itself, provides pleasure. Our finger and thumb sucking guards do not prevent the thumb or finger from going in the mouth, but they do prevent suction from forming, so there’s no longer any pleasure left in the habit. Without the pleasure, children have no incentive to continue. This finger and thumb sucking deterrent helps them break the habit quickly and pain-free.

As cute as they look, thumb and finger sucking are bad practices that can ultimately result in health problems later in development, particularly affecting the jaw. It is important to quickly correct these destructive behaviors before they can cause permanent, and expensive, damage. With our finger and thumb sucking guards, the urge to continue these detrimental habits becomes a thing of the past. When you require products to stop finger sucking in its path, choose TGuard, the number one dentist recommended anti-thumb and finger sucking device. Deter your child in 30 days or less, and invest in a plastic thumb or finger guard today.

WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT THUMB SUCKING?

Thumb sucking can cause a whole host of health and social problems for your child. Learn more.
malocclusion
Prolonged sucking can affect the development of the teeth and jaw. Called “malocclusion”, this condition is very serious and the dental work required to fix it can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Dental Work

Expensive dental work may be required to fix the damage done to the teeth and jaw.

bullying
Thumb sucking is a very convenient focus for bullies, and can be the source of serious social trauma. Worse, the stress from being bullied compels children to suck more, which creates a self-reinforcing loop.

Bullying

Thumb Sucking can be a source of teasing.
sickchild
Every time your child puts their thumbs or fingers in their mouth, they also introduce all of the germs they picked up since they last sucked. This causes frequent illness.

Frequent Illness

Children are far more likely to get sick when they are putting dirty thumbs and fingers in their mouth.

 

socialdelays
With a thumb in their mouth, children are less likely to engage with adults and peers. This effectively slows their social development.

Social Development

A thumb in the mouth prevents the child from speaking.
