Children who continue to suck a thumb, finger or pacifier past age 2 increase the risk of having protruding front teeth, according to a study of almost 400 children.
Children were more likely to have a crossbite the later they gave up thumb or pacifier sucking from birth to age 4. About 20 percent of those still hanging on to their habit at 4 had a crossbite, reports the study in the Journal of the American Dental Association.
The researchers next plan to study whether the condition persists in children's permanent teeth.
Previously, experts advised that children could safely suck their thumbs or pacifiers until they entered school.
