  1. I highly recommend this product to stop thumb sucking. We followed the directions and are very pleased by the results. I would encourage any parent to give this device a try.

  2. This really worked for my 4 yr old. It’s a great product and I would definitely recommend it to others

  3. Worked in a span of about a week.

  4. It really works!

  5. Before finishing the treatment on his right hand, he began sucking the finger of his left hand. We feared it wouldn’t be working. At the end of the 30-day treatment, he sucked the finger of his left hand for a few days, but then miraculously stopped. Now he doesn’t suck either finger anymore. For us it has worked!

  6. I was skeptical because my son had been sucking his thumb for years and we had tried everything to stop it. However, he used these guards for two weeks and has not sucked his thumb since! It was incredible and worth every penny!

  7. This product worked for my son within 7 days.He hasn’t sucked in over 6-months. Only regret is not buying it much earlier. I have to state that he didn’t get any injury or pain to his thumb during treatment. It was such a smooth process.

  8. Oh finally. Something worked. Hallelujah.

  9. It worked perfectly! We wore it for about 6 weeks on both thumbs because my daughter sucked both. She was still able to hold pencils and crayons etc. We are so grateful for the Tgaurd

  10. My 1 1/2 yr old would constantly suck his thumb. To sleep, to soothe and no matter what we tried at home, it simply did not work. We didn’t want his teeth to shift or develop an open bite. We purchased the T guard as our last hope. We were hesitant because it was more expensive than the other options on Amazon. We decided he definitely needed to try it. About a month or less of wearing the thumb guard and taking it off when he slept. He finally stopped! He would get the urge and would put his thumb in front of his lips but wouldn’t suck it. That stopped too. This worked amazing! He was able to eat, play, grab things with it on no problem. I loved that! Easy to clean and breathable. I highly recommend T guard 10/10!!! Definitely worth the money, saving your baby’s teeth and saving you thousands on future dental work.

  11. Both of my kids were thumb suckers. This was the only thing that got them to stop. We recommend it to eveyone when they are trying to figure out how to get their kids to stop sucking their thumb.

  12. This was the last attempt before a semi permanent orthodontic device for an 11year old!!! I was skeptical of this pricey piece of plastic but it did the trick!

    She wanted to stop thumbsucking but couldn’t kick the night time habit, she put the tguard on each night herself, didn’t even bother to lock it. She filled out the chart on her own and each week I bought her a pack of gum to reward her success (and to chew when she was craving her thumb- car trips!).

    It’s been 4 months since she stopped using the tguard and until seeing this email, I had nearly forgotten about the decade long saga of trying to nix the thumb sucking.

  13. I bought this for my nine year old after a friend recommended. My son was a nighttime thumb sucker and we had tried different methods to ween him off with no success. This device was easy and comfortable to use and worked like a charm. Used it for a couple weeks longer than the recommended 30 days and it’s now been over a month and with no thumb sucking.

  14. The best purchasing decision ever! My daughter sucked her thumb her entire life (5 years). I kept the TGuard on my her thumb for 2 months since I was so afraid 30 days may not be long enough and it worked like a charm 🙂

  15. We purchased two for our 6 year-old who sucks her thumb at night. She wore them diligently to bed each night and after 45 days she no longer sucks her thumb. So grateful for this product!

  1. My daughter sucked on her two middle fingers since she was an infant. We tried several things to try and break the habit and this was the only thing that helped! She’s 8 and has been going strong for over 3 months now. Highly recommend this product when they’re at an age they can understand and comprehend why you’re using this device.

  2. Such a great tool. My child is 9 so we waited a long time before committing to a solution, but after a tough couple days to transition it has been so smooth. I highly recommend for any parents looking for a safe and compassionate way to help break the habit.

  3. It was a very difficult process for my 6 year old, but she was self-motivated and really just needed a tool to help her end her finger sucking habit. The T-Guard was just the right tool. The first week was very rough, but we stuck it out and she was done with the habit at the end of the month. In addition to the T-Guard, we utilized some bitter-tasting nail polish, which helped particularly at night time. It was an emotionally draining process for everyone but my kid was proud of herself at the end. I would recommend this product.

  4. My child’s dentist told me about the Tguard website. My daughter had a stubborn finger sucking habit since an infant that she wanted to stop especially since it was affecting her permanent teeth cosmetically. The finger guard worked effectively, took a week to get use to and in about a month she kicked the habit. I highly recommend this product!

  5. I highly recommend this product! My daughter continuously sucked her middle and ring finger…when she was bored, tired, sleeping, ALL the time. It only took 18 days to break the habit completely. It has been 3 months and she has never once reverted back to sucking her fingers. The product fit well and did not bother her at all.

  6. It worked! I used for both of my children and neither suck their fingers anymore!

  7. Brillant product, my 3 yr old was so pumped to earn stars each day!

  8. My daughter quit sooking her fingers with no issues at all using the tguard. Prior to this nothing was working.

  9. Our almost 3 year old daughter had a very strong finger sucking habit, to include it being her self settling method at night, and we weren’t sure if we would be able to break it. We had tried less intrusive methods, but nothing was working. Her dentist recommended the TGuard and it worked! The first few days were tough, but eventually it became part of the routine. It did take longer than the 30 days to break her habit, and was hard at times, but definitely worth it in the end.

  10. It worked so well. He quit sucking his fingers in a week.

  11. My son was 2 years 11 months when we started treatment. I was certain we were in it for the long haul, as he sucked his finger ALL the time. After over month of using Tguard, his oral fixation remained and he was chewing through the device. We decided to take it off, to see what would happen. And the habit was GONE. No more chewing things (I think the device was more just available to him at that point) and no more sucking his finger! We are now 3 months post treatment and all still seems to be well.

  12. Tguard worked in just a couple weeks for our Kindergartner. A few months later, her teeth and finger are back to normal, and she is proud of herself. That’s the best part!

  13. We loved using this product! We used it for 16 days! And that’s all we needed for our little guy to stop his habit! He was 16m when we tried! We are so glad he is done with the finger sucking! He seems to be getting less sick too!

  14. My son sucked his two middle fingers from birth. So badly that he was on prescription creams to clear his rash that developed. In 30 days, the guard stopped him. We are over ten days without the brace and he hasn’t attempted to suck on his fingers. Our pediatrician even told us to hold off on hope for this appliance, but they are now recommending it to other patients. Our daycare owner said she is happy to leave a review as well because she has never seen results like this. Your child has full function of his/her hand, but cannot get the suction or skin contact that drives the habit. I questioned this when we purchased it but I would pay triple for it! I assure you, I’ve gotten nothing for leaving this review aside from amazing results. Absolutely worth every single penny and the time. The first two days were tough but then he just slowly gave up. Follow the instructions and watch it work!

  15. Success!! We had a three year old finger sucker—all day all night. We implemented the finger guard as recommended and by day 6, she was done and hasn’t done it again! Highly recommend!

  16. It worked. Our 5-year-old son, who was a finger sucker since he was in the womb, kicked the habit in 30 days. I’ll admit that at first it felt mean, depriving him of his self-soothing tool. But we helped him learn breathing exercises and his teacher worked with him on other calming techniques, too. So it’s absolutely a commitment, but already it’s worth it because we haven’t had strep 16 times this school year 😂

  17. The TGuard didn’t limit my son from doing daily activities and the habit was broken!

  18. After trying many different methods to break the finger sucking habit, TGuard was the only method that was comfortable for our little one and it worked! Fours years of finger sucking was brought to an end after 42 days with the TGuard on. We loved the sticker chart reward system, it helped our son engage with the process and reap the reward of conquering his bad habit! Highly recommend!

  19. I found this on Amazon but purchased through your site. I did have to buy a second pair of wrist bands but only used a couple of the second set. I thought my 4 year old would hate this and never use it. She did hate it but we get her to agree to wear it at bedtime and we prompted her not to suck her fingers during the day because she was losing her 2 front bottom teeth. After using it for about 26 nights she stopped sucking her fingers! I am so thankful for your product and appreciate whoever invented this so much. I’ve never loved a product more.

  20. My child stopped sucking his index finger in 30 days!

  21. TGuard worked for two of our children! We tried other methods leading up to choosing TGuard such as positive encouragement, soft finger gloves, reminding them consistently to stop, etc. After a dental visit we realized we needed something that would help stop the habit more aggressively. After 45 days the habit was completely kicked and we are 6 months of finger sucking free.

  22. My daughter at 18 months stopped sucking her two fingers! She sucked those fingers since she was one month old! Took about three weeks to break this habit that I thought would carry on for years. Thank you!
