How To Smile Big: Thumb Sucking Treatment

"How you doing, Dr. Eric Leber here. Wanted to show you a little about Leber Ortho. Um, we have a really exciting case here, this is Mia."

"Hi."

"Come on over let me show you, so she just got her braces off, this is before she started so see how open she was. She used to suck her thumb. But she doesn’t anymore so high-five, we got rid of that. And take a look at this, on my side you can really see how open she was. The thumb is kind a like a splinter, so this is her with her braces off today, big smile, and take a look from the side we just looked at before we started. We did not remove any teeth, she was very compliant with our orthodontic rubber bands, so good job. Moms a speech therapist, come on over mom. How important is it to fix this?"

"It’s massively important, it is massively important. It didn’t necessarily affect her speech but its just the functioning of the mouth. It was not functioning well."

"Are you happy with it?"

"Yeah."

"Big smile, thank you!"
