Habit Appliances

Sometimes our children develop unhealthy habits. While we can’t help with all bad habits, at Gonsoulin Dentistry in Lafayette, we can provide habit appliances that are designed to discourage:

  • Thumb-sucking
  • Excessive tongue movement
  • Finger-sucking

Habit appliances are safe, custom devices that gently discourage habits that could negatively affect your child’s oral health and the alignment of their teeth in the future. If your child has any of these habits, we recommend visiting our office for a consultation with Dr. Porter. After a quick exam, he can let you know if a habit appliance would benefit your child. Call us today for more information and to schedule your child’s consultation!
