Banner  Habit of the orthodontic practice of Dr Carola Seekamp, Berlin

Information from A to Z


In dental terms, a habit is a mannerism bad for tooth development and the masticatory system, and is one of the main reasons for orthodontic treatment of children and adolescents.
It disturbs the balance in the oral cavity and induces malalignment.

Examples are:

  • Thumb sucking
  • Lip biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Nail biting
  • Pen chewing
  • Tongue thrusting
