How TGuard works!
with no suction - their is no pleasure.
From birth, children possess an innate instinct to suckle for nourishment. Over time, this sucking sensation becomes intertwined with sensations of warmth and comfort, eventually offering its own source of pleasure.
While our thumb sucking guards don’t stop the thumb from entering the mouth, they effectively prevent the formation of suction, eliminating the pleasure associated with the habit. By removing the pleasurable sensation, children lack the motivation to persist. This stands as the fundamental distinction between our offerings and the fabric thumb-sucking gloves available in the market. Our approach to treating thumb-sucking is notably more efficient, aiding children in swiftly and comfortably overcoming the habit.
Why should children stop thumb sucking in the first place?
Certainly the habit might look a cute … yet this habit carries potentially significant consequences. If left unaddressed, thumb sucking can lead to:
Extended sucking can impact the growth of both teeth and jaw, a condition known as “malocclusion,” which is serious. Correcting this through dental procedures can incur costs ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Whenever your child places their thumbs in their mouth, they inadvertently introduce all the germs they’ve accumulated since their last thumb-sucking session. This can result in frequent illnesses.
Having a thumb in their mouth, children are less inclined to interact with adults and peers, thereby impeding their social development.
Thumb sucking becomes a convenient target for bullies, potentially causing significant social distress. Moreover, the stress resulting from bullying often drives children to suck their thumbs more, leading to a detrimental cycle of negative self-reinforcement.
Thumb sucking carries significant health risks for your child, and the extent of these harmful consequences is reliant upon the frequency and intensity of thumb-sucking behaviour. At best, this habit can lead to your child feeling socially isolated. At worst, it can result in extensive corrective dental expenses in the future, coupled with enduring challenges in self-esteem.
