The Palatal Thumb Crib is a fixed appliance expertly designed to set up a barrier against the tongue, aiding in the prevention of anterior flaring and fostering correct oral habits. Its vertical fence not only helps in curbing tongue thrust but also serves as a deterrent for thumb habits. To ensure its stability, it’s advised to have occlusal rests for premolars laser-welded.
