My 5 year old daughter still uses a pacifier. Will this affect her teeth?

Using a pacifier has long been blamed as a cause of bad bite. Depending on your daughter's reliance in the pacifier, it may cause varying degrees of interference on the bad bite development. The longer the duration and the longer your daughter spends with the pacifier, the more likely the risk of a bad bite developing. In general, parents are advised to discourage this habit as early as possible.
