Habit Breaking

Dr. Ora R. Canter DDS: Orthodontist in Astoria On Steinway Street.

If you or someone you love suffers from a habit you wish to break, we may be able to help you. Specifically, if you suck on your thumb or place your tongue between your front teeth, we can recommend a tongue crib. A tongue crib keeps the tongue in a posterior position within while also preventing you from resting your thumb within your mouth. Most of our patients lose their habit within a few days using a tongue crib.
