Thumb sucking

My son sucks his thumb. When is a good age to break the habit? Any ideas on how to get him to stop the thumb sucking?

I wouldn't be concerned about it until after he turns 2. He's doing it to soothe just like if you gave him a pacifier. They say that after two the thumb and paci should be gone because it can cause dental problems. I was a thumb sucker until 4 and I turned out just fine :)
