An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) - Journal of the American Orthodontic Society, Bergersen / Stevens.
Children who suffer from Sleep Disordered Breathing experience various health disorders, such as Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), lower IQ, chronic allergies, aggressive behavior, mouth breathing, crooked teeth, snoring, frequent headaches, arrested growth, etc.
The Healthy Start System is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, and pain-free treatment option delivered by specially trained dentists to open the airway, address the root causes of many sleep-related disorders, and straighten the teeth without braces. Healthy Start consists of a series of oral appliances that address sleep-disordered breathing symptoms such as mouth breathing, inability to focus, academic challenges, bedwetting, snoring, nightmares, underdeveloped jaw, under-developed airway, and more. These devices promote the proper development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow. They promote nasal breathing, and your children need to wear these for just a few hours a day or during the night. These appliances discourage mouth breathing as they widen the dental arches and help develop the jaw further and are customized to your child depending on their age and issues to be addressed.
The HealthyStart System is also very cost-effective compared to braces and provides a departure from traditional orthodontics into an early, natural approach to straighten your child's teeth.
The HealthyStart System is a more effortless and better option than braces, plastic aligners, surgery, or any other orthodontic option to achieve a beautiful and perfect smile for your child.
This system works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The removable device gently guides the erupting teeth into their perfect alignments and thus straighten your child's teeth without braces. It is better to begin the treatment early as the results are less likely to relapse! HealthyStart also helps in the proper growth and alignment of the lower jaw, expanding the arches to ensure incoming permanent teeth space.
HealthyStart system works faster than many other methods mainly because of three reasons:
The treatment begins early-in-life of your child, and it guides developing teeth into the correct alignment naturally.
In addition to correcting Sleep Disordered Breathing symptoms, HealthyStart also corrects oral habits, helping prevent future issues.
HealthyStart is a faster process than braces. Braces use mechanical force to align teeth, whereas HealthyStart begins earlier and corrects the issue faster.
