I've heard they are.... Avery uses a Nuk which was recommended by a pediatric denist to us.... We plan to take it away by the time she is 18mo old though.

i honestly dont know. lola doesnt take one, except on rare occasion when she is irritable or trying to wind down from nap. i had to give her one the other day so i could take pics of her in her tutu!

my dentist also recommended the Nuks, but Lola refused it. over and over i tried and she would just spit them out. the ones she takes now are the Mam. since she doesnt get it often and we dont give it to her at all at night, im not too worried about it.

Yes.. Chloe had hers a bit too long.. when we went to the Dentist for the 1st time he immediately asked if she had a binkie after looking at her teeth. I said yes and he recommended getting rid of it fast.. she'd developed an overbite because she was more holding it with her teeth rather than sucking it. we tossed it 2 days later in trade for polly pockets..
He said if we did it soon they could go back to normal.

sort of.

a baby can develop an overbite -- but once the pacifier is gone, ... the teeth almost always move back.
And it doesn't seem to matter what the 'style' of pacifier either.

My son had a terrible overbite, but he's now just about perfectly normal and he was an impossible to get rid of pacifier junkie that lasted clear into his 3s.
