Thumb sucking is a natural reflex for children. Kids suck their thumbs because it's comforting and calming. It can also be soothing, and many babies and toddlers use it as a coping mechanism when anxious or separated from their parents. The habit helps to induce sleep, and children may suck their thumbs in the evening before bedtime.
After permanent teeth come in, sucking may cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and alignment of the teeth. It can also cause changes in the roof of the mouth. The intensity of the sucking is a factor that determines whether or not dental problems may result. If children rest their thumbs passively in their mouths, they are less likely to have difficulty than those who vigorously suck their thumbs. Some aggressive thumb suckers may develop problems with their baby (primary) teeth.
The best time to discourage thumb sucking is by age four. By this time, prolonged sucking could begin to affect your child's mouth and developing jaw and teeth, possibly causing permanent teeth to be misaligned. If your child passively sucks his thumb, the habit may be easier to discourage, but vigorous sucking can lead to changes in the palate that affect the permanent bite and are usually more difficult to end without intervention.
Some children may experience difficulty stopping their thumb sucking. In these instances, it may be necessary to purchase products that can be placed on the thumb or fingers in order to discourage the habit. Oftentimes, just placing a bandage on the finger or a sock or glove on the preferred hand is sufficient. Whatever method you choose to employ to discourage the behavior, remember to always use positive reinforcement to encourage your child. Criticism or nagging may cause more anxiety and perpetuate the problem.

Baby teeth will start showing up in a child’s mouth starting around the age of six months and continuing until he or she is about six years old. The baby teeth play an important role in helping a child learn to chew and speak, and they also serve as placeholders, saving the spot for the permanent teeth that will eventually erupt. Here are several differences between the deciduous and the permanent teeth.
The enamel of the deciduous teeth is thinner than the enamel on permanent teeth ,the primary teeth usually look a lot whiter than the permanent teeth.The shape of the teeth is also a tad different. When the front permanent teeth erupt, they usually have a ,number of small bumps on the top, known as mamelons  There are 20 primary teeth and 32 permanent teeth, including four wisdom teeth. Part of the reason for the difference in number is that a child’s mouth is much smaller than an adult’s.
Since the primary teeth are designed to fall out, there’s often the misconception they don’t need care or protection. It’s just as important, however, to provide tender, love and care for the primary teeth as you would care for the replacement teeth. If the teeth are lost or pulled out early, they can’t act as space-savers and may not leave enough room for the permanent teeth. A child might also have trouble with the alignment of his teeth.
As early as  baby teeth begin to emerge, tooth decay can begin. Children have to take a good oral practice ,and should take care of their precious tooth
