Thumb/Finger Habit Modifier
Parents are often concerned with the damage caused by thumb and finger sucking habits and at the same time concerned with the trauma of some habit modification appliances. The Bluegrass appliance is comfortable and an easy adjustment for children.
In this case the thumb habit resulted in a deformation of the bone of the upper jaw. Fortunately, in single-digit ages the deformation of the bone rebounds when the habit is removed. Once the habit was gone, the bone rebounded and the teeth aligned without any braces.
