How to Stop Thumb Sucking

Question

Our 4 1/2 year old still sucks his thumb when he's tired or bored. We call him out on it when we see it. I've looked online, but all the advice is pretty much 'feed and reward them', 'discuss it with them', etc...

Our dentist recommends he be done with sucking his thumb at age 4. We're not looking for a trick, but what advice might you have.

Thank you.
