The HealthyStart system is a complete orthodontic treatment that starts at a young age. Crooked teeth and misalignment issues are often the result of deeper problems that have to do with breathing and sleeping. Causes include sleep disorders, improper oral hygiene habits, airway construction issues, and jaw misalignment.
What Is HealthyStart?
HealthyStart is a new orthodontic technology that works to discover root problems that may lead to future issues with a child’s teeth. The treatment is simple, which means less dental anxiety for your child.
Our team will start with a thorough examination of your child’s mouth. We take digital x-rays and photos from several angles so we can create an oral device that is custom-made to fit comfortably in the mouth. This device is designed to help guide the growth of your child’s teeth and jawbone during the most important years of development.
Sleep Disordered Breathing
While having straight teeth is a nice benefit on its own, HealthyStart focuses on the overall health of your child’s bone structure. Sleep disordered breathing, or SDB, is often caused by abnormal bone structure development. If your child’s teeth are misaligned, watch for some of these other symptoms that may indicate SDB:
- Chronic bed-wetting.
- Heave snoring.
- Symptoms of sleep apnea, such as exhaustion.
- Night terrors.
- Seasonal allergies.
- Trouble concentrating in school.
When your child starts treatment early, HealthyStart can correct bad oral habits, promote naturally straight teeth, and result in good jaw and airway structure. HealthyStart has been approved by the FDA to provide a pain-free way to a beautiful, functional smile.
