How harmful is thumb sucking/pacifier use for my child’s teeth?

Thumb sucking and pacifier use truly can alter the growth pattern of your child’s upper jaw if they keep it up for too long. It can create a high upper palate and can shift upper front teeth and make them crooked. Try to wean your child off of these habits as soon as they don’t truly “need” it.
