Our daughter is still very dependent on his pacifier. And we as parents are very hard to take that comfort and needs from her. We were at the dentist for 4 months ago. As was her tandstilling fine. However, the dentist recommended that she should not use the pacifier after his 3 birthday. It is now two months ago and we believe that her sucking needs are still very large.
How important is it that we take the pacifier from her. And what are the consequences of not doing it at 3 years of age, as recommended by the dentist?

Dear mother of Fie
We always recommend that the child stop using the pacifier at 2-3 years of age and preferably before it fills the 4 years. The older the child becomes , the harder it is to wean from the pacifier. If the child uses the pacifier over 3 years of age, it can develop an open bite (the front teeth when not one the other, there is air between), overbid (undermundstænderne stand further back than normal) or krydsbid (undermundstænderne when out of overmundstænderne in the pages). That seen in particular, tend to overbid by children who use the pacifier beyond 3 years, if the child develops a tungeuvane, this can overbid to deteriorate.
You must take up the fight. Here is some advice for how. In may possibly. deliver sutterne to the dentist, sometimes they have a “Suttetræ” or branch they are hanging them up, possibly. can i “send” the pacifier to santa claus or another baby who needs them:) You can also let the be with to take the pacifier from the child and instead make the less attractive, by cutting the tip of it, together with the child. This can then continue with, once a week, until there is only the shaft left. Try evs. to lubricate the go nail.
Hope you can use my answer.
With kind regards
