We are proud providers for The HealthyStart® System. It is a revolutionary departure from traditional orthodontics into an early, non-invasive, natural approach to straightening teeth and pain-free approach to opening the airway. It is a series of appliances designed to address symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing. It works as well as, or better than, braces, surgery, or any other orthodontic option to achieve a picture-perfect smile. The HealthyStart® System guides teeth into their ideal alignments without the price-tag of braces.
Poor positioning of teeth is a clear indicator of an underdeveloped jaw and an undeveloped airway. An underdeveloped jaw doesn’t leave enough room for teeth to grow in properly, causing issues, such as overjet and overbite. It also signals that your child’s airway may be obstructed, as there isn’t enough room for complete airflow.
Sleep Disordered Breathing
Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is characterized by airway obstruction during sleep, causing a child to “snore”, or rather gasp for air when asleep. A child’s arousal response and bladder pressure are also affected by SDB, explaining why they may be bedwetting. This airway obstruction also leads to improper air intake, which causes snoring and sleep apnea.
