About Braces

Thumb Crib

A Thumb Crib is used to help stop finger or thumb habits that move your teeth out of line. This appliance is a constant to help stop the bad habit.

When wearing a Thumb Crib, you can expect some discomfort to your tongue. As you get used to it, eating and speaking will become easier. At each appointment, we will check the Thumb Crib. We will also check the patient’s thumb or fingers for calluses.
