Thumbsucking and Supporting Healthy Habits: Thumbs Away

Thumbsucking and Supporting Healthy Habits: Introducing Our Thumbs Away Online Course 

Oct 3, 2023 - Written by Continuum Myo and Wellness


Thumbsucking is a natural reflex that starts even before a baby is born. It serves essential purposes in early development, helping infants prepare to feed and providing them with self-soothing comfort. While many children naturally outgrow thumbsucking between the ages of 2 and 4, some continue the habit, potentially leading to dental and developmental concerns. At Continuum Myo and Wellness, we understand the importance of addressing these concerns early and positively. That's why we're excited to introduce our Thumbs Away Online Course, based on orofacial myofunctional therapy approaches.

Understanding Thumbsucking:

Thumbsucking begins as a reflex in utero and continues through infancy and toddlerhood. However, it's essential to recognize that not all children follow the same timeline when it comes to discontinuing this habit. Dentists typically monitor children's oral development and may advise parents to help their child stop thumbsucking, typically during preschool years, to prevent potential issues.
