How long it takes to eliminate a sucking habit depends upon FREQUENCY- the number of times the habit is practiced; INTENSITY- the amount or force applied to the teeth during sucking; and DURATION- the total amount of time spent sucking.

IAOM CERTIFIED Orofacial Myofunctional therapists know how to achieve this using positive reinforcement and no hurtful dental appliances.
