The HANDAID is for parents that are truely serious about protecting their children's teeth. HANDAID will stop thumb sucking and break your child's thumbsucking habit.
It's not "rocket science". The only way to stop a child from sucking their thumb is to keep their thumb out of their mouth and their hand away from their mouth until they have lost their thumb sucking dependency. So, the trick is keeping that hand away from their mouth. You've tried every way to do this and failed. And, that's why you are here.
One out of every ten children suck their thumb. Few children stop by themselves. Most children don't stop until damage has been done to the alignment of their permanent teeth. Any orthodontist will tell you that most of their extreme cases of tooth malformation are caused by thumbsucking. The cost of tooth realignment will be thousands of dollars. And, in severe cases where surgery may be needed; the cost can be ten, twenty or upwards of thirty thousand dollars. And, that's todays cost! Imagine the cost 7 to 10 years from now when your child needs an orthodontist. There are also the months and even years of pain and discomfort that your child has to endure. Pediatricians will also tell you that children with a thumb sucking addiction are more susceptible to colds, flus and other diseases simply by putting a tainted thumb in their mouth. And what about the emotional embarrassment that your child will go through. ABC TV has a show called "Ugly Betty". What is the focal point of her lack of beauty?
The HANDAID is shown here without the closure.
You can see children wearing HANDAID on the testimonial page.
What some Orthodontist don't want you to know!
95% of the damage that is caused by thumbsucking starts between the ages of 3 and 4 when the permanent teeth start to arrive. If you can break your childs thumb sucking habit before age 4; their will be minimal or no interruption of the alignment of your child's permanent teeth due to thumbsucking. When the permanent teeth start to arrive during their thumb sucking habit; the upper front teeth are pushed out, the lower front teeth are pushed in and the side teeth are drawn in. The strength of your teeth is how tightly they are wedged together. When that wedge has been interrupted by thumbsucking; the jaw will actually start to shrink in order to re-wedge the disturbed teeth back together. This is why some children need to have 2 or more upper and lower teeth pulled during realignment by an orthodontist so that the remaining teeth can fit in that smaller space. Some orthodontist will go so far as to say that thumb sucking can actually change your childs permanent facial apearance due to that shrinking of your childs jaw.
