HealthyStart® is a faceted program used to correct and guide the growth and development of a child’s teeth, airway and jaw. Besides parent and patient education about correct swallowing and breathing, various orthodontic appliances are used to guide and align teeth and jaws. Many times, this eliminates or lessens the need for traditional orthodontic treatments later on. These appliances look just like a regular athletic mouthguard and are easy to wear. Creating beautiful smiles these appliances help with Sleep Disordered Breathing (or SDB) that result when a child’s dental arches and jaw develop improperly. This can result in snoring or ADD/ADHD, bedwetting, poor school performance, etc. Some signs that your child has a sleep breathing disorder and may benefit from the HealthyStart system include:

  • Mouth Breathing
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Delayed Growth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Swollen Tonsils
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Sleepy during daytime

HealthyStart helps your child get the oxygen and deep sleep their growing body needs, as well as working to reduce or prevent SDB and other issues. In some cases, HealthyStart can even reduce the need for extensive orthodontic treatment in the future.
