An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB).

Healthystart is an innovative orthodontic system that uses oral appliance therapy to influence the jaw as it grows and develops. This alleviates Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) issues such as snoring, grinding, and mouth breathing as well as provides an effective interceptive orthodontic treatment to reduce crowding.

Every Child Deserves a Healthy Start!

Research shows that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation can contribute to a wide range of children’s health issues, from frequent headaches to aggression. Instead of treating the symptoms, HealthyStart™ offers the opportunity to address causes of these disorders.

The HealthyStart™ appliance system promotes natural jaw and airway development in children who have SDB, a restricted airway, and crowded or crooked teeth. The soft, comfortable device is non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free, and non-invasive and typically only worn at night.

By optimizing airflow and shifting children from mouth breathing to nose breathing, Sleep Disorder Breathing can be remedied—and breathing properly means your child will feel better physically and emotionally.

More About Sleep Disordered Breathing

Many children are diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, and other disorders without being assessed for Sleep Disordered Breathing. The result is that children are being treated with powerful drugs without ever addressing the true cause of their disorder. Children should be evaluated and assessed to whether a breathing or sleep issue is impacting their behavior and health by depriving them of oxygen while they sleep.
Sleep Disordered Breathing can present as mild snoring during sleep to severe airway obstruction that causes your child to wake up gasping for air. Children with SDB feel tired no matter how much sleep they get; during SDP episodes, the body is jolted out of deep sleep as the heart rate slows and blood pressure rises. Your child may have no recollection of this occurring, but even if they don’t remember it, these disruptions prevent them from getting the restorative sleep they need for optimal health.
HealthyStart™ not only addresses SDB, but also straightens teeth without braces. When HealthyStart™ is started at a young age, it can eliminate the need for braces during adolescence, with low risk of orthodontic relapse.

HealthyStart has helped countless kids be healthier, happier, and literally breathe easier.
