Unlike other devices that limit movement, our devices don’t prevent your child from eating, drawing, writing, or playing.
How does the TGuard work?
Without suction, there is no pleasure..
From birth, children instinctively possess the natural inclination to suckle for nourishment. This act of sucking gradually becomes linked with feelings of warmth and comfort, ultimately leading to a sense of pleasure on its own.
Our thumb sucking guards allow the thumb to be in the mouth but effectively prevent the formation of suction, thereby eliminating the pleasure associated with the habit. As a result, children lose their motivation to continue thumb sucking. This sets our products apart from fabric thumb-sucking gloves available in the market. Our approach to thumb-sucking treatment proves to be highly effective, enabling children to break the habit swiftly and without any discomfort.
Why stop thumb sucking in the first place?
Thumb sucking may seem cute, but it can carry potentially serious consequences. Breaking this habit can be challenging. If left untreated, thumb sucking can lead to:
Prolonged sucking can have a significant impact on the development of both teeth and jaw, leading to a condition known as “malocclusion.” This issue is a matter of great concern as the corrective dental procedures needed to address it can be quite costly, ranging from hundreds to potentially thousands of dollars.
Whenever your child puts their thumbs in their mouth, they unknowingly introduce all the germs they have picked up since last sucking. Consequently, this can lead to frequent bouts of illness.
When children have their thumb in their mouth, they are less likely to interact with adults and peers, leading to a hindered social development
Thumb sucking becomes a convenient target for bullies, causing significant social trauma for the children involved. Moreover, the stress resulting from bullying compels these children to suck their thumbs even more, leading to a harmful and negative self-reinforcing cycle.
Thumb sucking can present significant health risks to your child, the extent of which is determined by the frequency and intensity of the habit. In less severe cases, the habit may lead to social isolation for your child. However, in more serious instances, it can result in extensive dental problems, requiring costly corrective dental procedures in the future, and even lead to long-lasting self-esteem issues.
