ANOOP SAYAL Family and Cosmetic Dentistry located in Georgetown Marketplace Mall Q:Is thumb sucking bad? A:Yes and no. First, it must be understoodthat thumb sucking is a "natural reflex". An ultrasound test on a developing baby will often show him or her sucking a thumb.When this habit goes on for too long, however, orthodontic problems can often occur. By the age of six or seven, the child's permanent teeth are just beginning to arrive. Before then, thumb sucking will cause few problems. After permanent teeth arrive, abnormal pressure from the thumb can cause the front upper teeth to become "bucked". The bottom front teeth then become crowded backward. A misalignment of the teeth occurs. So, how do you stop thumb sucking for your four or five year old? Some have found gloving the hand, dipping the thumb in vinegar and increased attention to the child help. In the end, though, treatment depends on how long and often the thumb sucking occurs. To avoid any permanent damage, don't delay your attempts to stop this habit. LITIGATIONlegal matters I am married and just separated from my spouse. We have children, and a lot to sort out.

Hein Partner Family/Divorce Lawyer Proud member of B2C Halton Hills OFFICE LOCATIONS GEORGETOWN 8 Guelph Street 905 452 7400 BRAmPTON OFFICE (main) 350 Rutherford Road S., Suite 320 905 452 7400 CALEDON EAST 15955 Airport Road, Suite 201 905 584 4545 No, you do not have to go to court. In fact, the only thing you need to go to court for is to get a divorce if you wanted a divorce. Otherwise, all other issues, including custody/access, support and property division, can all be resolved out of court. It is in fact preferable that spouses avoid court, and resolve matters between them on their own, but preferably with legal counsel to help you investigate and negotiate a resolution. There are many reasons not to go to court: it is adversarial, it is expensive, it takes a long time, and you have the least amount of control over the outcome as you are leaving the decision- making to a judge. There are several great ways to resolve matters without going to court. For instance, negotiations directly between the parties (with legal counsel if any), a "4-way meeting" between the parties the their lawyers, or mediation. Certainly, if there are important points that are not resolved, or you have an urgent situation, then court might be necessary. However, there should first be a serious effort to resolve matters "amicably" out of court first if at all possible. We do a lot of family/divorce law. I am happy to meet you for a free consultation at one of our three offices, including 8 Guelph Street, Georgetown, in the Lounsbury Life & Group Insurance Benefits building. Have a great weekend.
