Sucking on pacis are bad for teeth what. E healthy to suck?
I have sucked my thumb my entire life and have no problems with the alignment of my teeth.
I mostly suck my thumb in bed as I am trying to go to sleep (at night and for naps) and sometimes during the day. I only suck for about 30 minutes a day, so I don't suck that much.
I had a paci as a kid until I was around 9-ish and do have my front top two teeth pushed forward some, but like others have said it shouldn't be a huge issue as long as you're not constantly using it. Also I've heard that bigger pacis are better (adult-sized if you can get one), I haven't tried baby/toddler-sized pacifiers as an adult so I can't speak of any difference personally.
