Thumb sucking is actually a natural habit for young children. Approximately 90% of children between 2 to 3 years of age suck their thumbs. Thumb sucking only begins to affect a child once they reach 6 to 7 years of age because that’s when their permanent teeth start to come in. After the permanent teeth come in, thumb sucking may cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and alignment of the teeth.

In addition, braces are basically a food magnet, with the residue from chewy, sticky foods causing tooth decay. And we all know that having a piece of broccoli stuck in your bracket isn’t very appealing (which brushing and flossing after every meal can alleviate). So, what about kissing, especially if your partner has braces too? Is it even possible?
