If you are looking for a guaranteed way to stop thumb sucking in 4 weeks or less, without causing pain or discomfort, then look no further. Most parents see results after only ONE week of using the TGuard Classic™ treatment kit, making it one of the most recommended solutions to break the habit.

Please note: Most children switch from one thumb to the other, when you apply the TGuard. For that reason, we recommend purchasing two treatment kits, one for each hand.

  • 30 bracelets: fun to wear, and multi-colored, so children can choose a new color every day!
  • 1 Instalock – makes the fitting process as easy as possible!

Sizing Chart

SIZING CHART Age: 3 to 4 (under 40 lbs) Age: 5 to 6 (between 40 and 55 lbs) Age: 7+ (more than 55 lbs)
Recommended Appliance Size Small Medium Large

If your child is in between sizes, such as a child who weighs around 40 pounds, or is 4.5 years old, order a smaller size if the child is taller / thinner than an average child of their age, or order a larger size if the child is shorter / heavier than an average child of their age.

Please know that children under 3 are more likely to switch from thumb to finger sucking, or vice-versa, due to their habit not being fully matured. If you see that the child switches from thumb to finger sucking, you must contact us.

  1. Only thing that worked for us !

  2. This works great to prevent my daughter from sucking her thumb! We did have to purchase one for each thumb, but it’s worth the investment. They are comfortable and easy to use. Her teeth and bite have never looked better! I highly recommend it!

  3. Worked great. This was the second time we have used tguard. It worked well for both of my children. They were 4 and 5 years old when they started to wear it.

  4. It worked and we had tried a lot of things! My daughter is 7 and only sucked her thumb at night but she wanted to stop. The first week was the hardest and I was doubtful it would work as she chewed part of the thumb guard and chewed off a small portion. We kept it on day and night for 10 days then just every night after that. She’s had the guard off for 2 months and still no thumb sucking. Thank you.

  5. My daughter was very established in her thumbsucking habit, we tried a few things but nothing worked, it had been going on 9 years. A local orthodontist office recommended TGuard. I ordered the TGuard online, it arrived by the date promised. By the time it arrived my daughter was enthusiastic to give it a try. It worked like a charm! By the end of two weeks she felt ready to not wear it but we did the entire three weeks just to be really sure (she only wore it at night). It has been three months since she finished using TGuard and she has not gone back to thumbsucking. The product is made of quality materials, we were extremely happy with it.

  6. It worked in 10 days . It broke the Habit❤️

  7. My daughter was 2 years when we purchased the device. Since she was born she was sucking her right thumb. After the first visit to the dentist he recommended the use of TGuard as an alternative of getting rid of the habit. Initially we purchased 1 device and she used it for couple of days, until we realized she was sucking the other thumb. So I purchased a second one and she used them contemporary for 1 month. Since then, 6 month have passed and she has quitted totally. Since we removed the device, she never sucked the thumb. While she was on tGuard, we noticed that her need to suck the thumb was diminishing day by day . So in our case it worked and I will absolutely recommend it. We had to purchase 2 of them to benefit from it. Good luck to everyone!

  8. Worked like a charm. Good investment, and my daughter’s open bite was corrected within months after she quit her thumb.

  9. My daughter was 3 ½ when she started with tguard. She sucked her thumb since she was a baby and then also had some Trichotillomania (hair pulling) issues while she slept. She’d pull her hair, wrap it around her thumb and sucked her thumb. (Yuck!) So, we tried hats at bedtime/naptime, but she’d eventually be able to reach under her hat to pull and mittens/gloves never stayed on. So, my main concern was her lack of hair, but I finally realized if we stopped her thumb sucking habit, then she wouldn’t need to pull her hair. Tguard was the answer we were looking for! She wore the bracelets (we called the plastic guards her bracelets) pretty well at night/naptime and liked the colored straps. The chart was nice too. After several months, though, I don’t know if they stretched or not, but she kept pulling them back to free her thumb- to be able to suck her thumb – and still reach under her hat and pull her hair (ugh!). I don’t know how she was able to do it as it was on the tightest setting. Tguard support worked with us and we replaced the bracelets. That worked for a few nights, then she started pulling the guard back to expose her thumbs again. I actually tried a bitter nailpolish on her thumbnails. With the nailpolish, she didn’t pull back her guards and left them on all night. We still wore the guards for a little while, but now she doesn’t need to. She’s completely kicked the habit of both thumb sucking and hair pulling! We are thrilled and so thankful that our little girl can now wear pigtails! Thank you for all your support!
