Over time the pacifier is already your child's best friend, it is part of the habits and the child is already conditioned to use it. However, we know that dentists recommend giving up the pacifier habit when the baby is 12 months old.
And no matter how much time passes, the scary moment of taking the pacifier out of your child's life will arrive!
Thinking about it Fridababy together with a specialized pediatric dentist, developed a system that promises that the baby will drop the pacifier in 5 steps.
Paci Weaning System-PT consists of 5 pacifiers. Each pacifier represents a phase of this process. All 5 pacifiers are orthodontic and indicated for use after 6 months.
At each stage, the size of the pacifier becomes smaller, decreasing the baby's satisfaction, completing in step 5 the total loss of interest in the pacifier.
Dr. Cintia PU Schames, Pediatric Dentist says that the incorrect use of the pacifier, associated with the child's genetic pattern, can produce oral and occlusion problems (bite), which can be: anterior open bite (upper teeth do not touch the lower ones), posterior crossbite (the upper part is "tight", poorly developed, and does not fit with the lower one), upper teeth projected forward (and the lower backwards), changes in speech and swallowing pattern (for example, lingual interposition), changes in breathing patterns, etc.
