Hi; I was wondering what percentage of orthodontic patients are the result of thumb sucking. Thanks.

  • if the thumb sucking is discontinued before the eruption of the permanent teeth then chances of malalignment of the teeth is very much reduced but if it is continued even after the eruption of the permanent teeth then most of the thumb sucker need braces treatment but it depends upon the intensity and the frequency of thumb sucking also.
