Retraining the tongue to rest against the palate is an effective intervention for treatment of habitual digit (normally the thumb) sucking and prolonged use of pacifiers.

If digit-sucking habit persists, malocclusions such as open-bite can develop.

Correction of tongue posture and induction of nasal breathing is key in the treatment of habitual digit sucking (Int Dent J. 2015; 65(5); 235).
