Prolonged pacifier use may cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and the alignment of teeth.  It also can cause changes in the roof of the mouth.  We suggest that children should stop using pacifiers by age 2.  And don’t forget that the AAO suggests children are evaluated by an orthodontist at age 7.  We’ll be happy to do that for you!
