Purpose: In this paper, a part of the compiled results from a questionnaire survey conducted on 30 digitsucking cases which we instructed at our clinic in the past six years will be presented. Further, check sheets, gloves and a book for instruction will be introduced that we have developed in our daily clinical work during the first stage, i.e. making the patient conscious of the problem and maintaining the awareness. How the patients responded when such means were applied will also be discussed together with the case presentation.
