As a parent, there’s no reason to be concerned about the use of these “security blankets” when your child is very young, but if your child is still sucking their thumbs an fingers after their permanent teeth erupt (usually around the age of 5 or 6), they may be putting themselves at risk for problems later in life. (FYI, the pacifier should be LONG gone by this point!)

Dr. Greenfield and every one of the staff who assisted me today exceeded all of my expectations and I am not that easy to please. The staff worked to fit me in at the last minute and even remembered my previous scheduling issues. Shannon especially, is very skilled and takes pride in her work. My teeth look better than they ever have and the dentist explained ways to prevent future problems. Really, can you beat that? SO glad I changed to Dr. Greenfield and his outstanding staff!!!!
With a holistic approach, your entire body is taken into consideration, rather than just the mouth. Dr. Greenfield understands that your oral health is interrelated to the health of your whole body and that the two can rarely be completely separated.
