A true orthodontic pacifier prevents and corrects oral malformations thanks to the unique design of its mouthpiece.

Created by French dental surgeon Louis-Marie Dusserre, the first truly orthodontic pacifier prevents and corrects oral malformations thanks to the unique design of its mouthpiece. A screen at the front prevent the incisors from being pushed forward by the tongue and a bite plane aligns the teeth on the same plane.

A preventive and corrective silicone pacifier

Christened Bbunik, this 100% silicone pacifier guides teeth in the right direction and promotes proper tooth growth in babies. The pacifier fulfils a preventive and corrective purpose, enables babies to have their soothing sucking reflex while preserving their dental capital!

This orthodontic pacifier, also called a “teething pacifier” was met with great enthusiasm at the Concours Lépine in Paris and even took the Silver Medal in 2017. It has been on sale for a few months and it has a bright future ahead of it given that 80% of parents use pacifiers to soothe their babies, and in 35% of cases, regular use of a pacifier will create dental deformities that will require orthodontic treatment when the children reach their teens.
