any success out there helping toddler to stop thumb sucking?

Mine is 21 mos and really only sucks while sleeping or upset/sick. I still worry as he already looks to be developing an overbite and want to start early. Ideas? Opinions? Should I just wait and see if he grows out of it or try to encourage him to stop?
