The use of the pacifier makes crooked teeth. Myth or truth?

Sucking a pacifier or a finger is a natural need in some babies. It is considered normal and we do not intervene, until the child is 3 years old. Most children after the 4th year of age stop the pacifier on their own. Whether the pacifier creates orthodontic abnormalities or not depends on how often during the day the child uses the pacifier, for how long each time and how much energy he/she puts into this activity. In most cases when the child stops the pacifier, the teeth return to their normal position on their own. In any case, the pediatric dentist must assess the condition of the child’s teeth.
