You may be concerned about your child’s thumb-sucking and wonder if it is harmful, at what age your child should stop, or what could happen if your child doesn’t stop.  First off, thumb-sucking is a natural reflex for children.  It serves many purposes; it makes babies feel secure and happy and helps them to learn about their world.  So many children suck their thumbs at night because it is relaxing and helps them fall asleep.  Children should have ceased sucking their thumb by the time the permanent teeth are ready to come in.  Children usually stop between the ages of two and four.   After the permanent teeth come in, thumb-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.  Some aggressive thumb suckers may cause problems with their baby teeth.  If you notice changes in your child’s teeth, consult your dentist.     Not sure what you mean by ‘outlined’.   Do you want an outline around the logo?

Fish Oil

Recent research suggests eating even moderate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, typically found in foods such as salmon and other fatty fish, may help ward off gum disease.  Dental exams showed participants in the study with more omega-3 fatty acid consumption were between 23 percent and 30 percent less likely to have gum disease than those who consumed less omega-3 fatty acids.  You can find omega-3 fatty acids in sardines, mackerel, swordfish, and even some types of nuts and seeds.  The American Heart Association recommends eating fatty fish at least twice a week not just for gum disease prevention but for overall health as well.  If none of those options seem appealing to you, try taking fish oil supplements.  In addition to omega- 3 fatty acids, gum disease can also be prevented by exercising good dental health.  Remember to brush at least twice a day, and to floss daily.
