Basic Tongue Guard

Use the Vertical Habit appliance on the upper arch to restrain the tongue from excessive anterior movement or thumb sucking. A .040-inch support archwire is soldered to bands on the first molars.

A vertical “cage” extends just behind the lower anteriors to prevent thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.
