TGuard AeroThumb Reviews

1-15 of 18 reviews
  1. My seven-year-old wore his medium sized aerothumb guard for almost 30 days straight which really helped him during that time. He just had the night time habit to break, but then the thumb guard broke. Customer service was slow to respond, but they did honor their warranty. In the lapsed time, we are dealing with not as much thumb sucking, but have to start over. It has certainly helped and hopefully will help our seven year old kick the habit completely.

  2. It would have worked but my child always got out of it unfortunately 😕

  3. This is going to be my 3rd time getting it. I wish this product was more economical because I had to wait a few months before I can afford to get another one versus getting it right away.

  4. It helped in a way , but she changed fingers and she is now sucking her index . I have to start to put her a thin coton glove under the t-guard and see if it breaks the habit 100%.
    But overall, it a good thing to stop thumb sucking

  5. I bought it twice for my daughter and I followed instruction, but she still suck her thumb, but not as often.

  6. We had a relapse after two months and are having to start the process over. Our son was sucking his thumb in his ultrasound and is stubborn about not wanting to give it up. We are hopeful one more round will do the trick.

    • Hi Vicki,
      Thank you for your feedback! If the child undergoes any appreciable period of time without sucking, it typically indicates the habit was broken and treatment was effective. It would be prudent to better understand the reason for the relapse, in order to address it moving forward. We do recommend reaching out to us to discuss.
      Kind regards,
      MED et al Inc.

  7. The T-Guard was great until it wasn’t. Our daughter was 6.5yrs old. She learned out to make the medical grade silicone
    malleable and sucked her thumb at night before slipping it back in when she got up.
    She’d also have pressure spots from the plastic loop on the bracelet. I really do think it’s more successful with younger children. But, she’s not sucked her thumb in almost of week as of this writing, 12/23, and that’s due to classical bribery.

  8. Our 7 year old daughter was ready and motivated to stop. When the TGuard arrived in the mail, she wanted to put it on right away, even thought she had been sick the night before. For her, its presence was a reminder of our goal, and helped her not to suck as she was going to sleep. She did chew on the tip so that rough edges came out, which we had to clip and the file down. We also struggled with irritated skin and had to stop it at night and replace with a knit glove in the middle and near the end. So if you are considering, be very aware of the skin condition, and replace the wrist strap often and let it dry well between putting the guard back on. The only other downside to this adventure is that now she bites her nails instead of sucking her thumb.

  9. It’s a great product and will work great if my child wouldn’t be able to break out of it. She breaks out of it without a problem so won’t benefit us at all.

  10. My child is 45 lbs and a month shy of 5 so I ordered the Medium but it was way too big. Small has been working. We’ve been using it for over a month 24-7. Whenever I go go to clean and change the guard, her thumb immediately goes back to her mouth and she starts sucking, even a month out. She also chews on the guard non stop. We’ve gone through two and just ordered a third. I feel like she replaced thumbsucking with chewing on the guard, so she’s not breaking the habit of putting her thumb in her mouth, so as soon as we drop the guard, she will go back to her old thumbsucking ways.

  11. I really wish this worked better for us. My son, who is 6, has been a thumb sucker for years. He’s started chewing on the guard and it has split in places.

  12. The product probably works for some, just not our child.
    We ended up taking them to an orthodontist and they recommending buying a product called Mavala. Honestly, ITS WORKED

  13. The thumb guard works really well. The guard did cause a really bad burn/rash. We only got to use the guard for 11 days. It did stop her from sucking her thumb, but we had to stop using the product.

    • We have since reached out to this customer to address the reason for the rash, which happened to be because the size was too small. We have since sent the customer a replacement appliance in the medium size, which is fitting better.

  14. I was excited about this product. But my 1 year old has been wearing it two days and I noticed the product cutting in to her skin. I use the tight setting at first but thought it would cut of circulation in her hand so I loosen it only to see her thumb was getting cut from the plastic. I ignored the babies behavior for two nights thinking she just wanted her thumb but she was probably trying to tell me it was uncomfortable and hurting. I think a slip for the thumb should also come with product for better comfort.

    • Hi Louise,
      Please reach out to us: the device, when properly adjusted, should not cause any marks at all. If the device is cutting into the skin, it must be loosened. It is best to remove the device daily and inspect the skin yourself to see if there are any signs that the device is not adjusted well.
      We would be happy to troubleshoot this issue and extend your warranty.
      Kind regards,
      MED et al, Inc.

  15. Product works but don’t expect it to last longer than thirty days. And when it doesn’t, don’t expect TGuard to care about it even though you just dropped significant money with them.

    • TGuard Response: This customer used our automated warranty claim system and their claim was denied because it was outside of the warranty period, and they were not in the USA. Despite the fact that they did not reach out to us directly to give us a chance to help, we did offer a free replacement for the cost of shipping, as a courtesy, which they refused.
