What is the HealthyStart® System?
The HealthyStart® System is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free approach to opening the airway and straightening teeth WITHOUT braces. The HealthyStart® System features a series of appliances that are customized to your child's needs, depending their age, as well as the issues you intend on addressing.
These appliances address a range of symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing, such as mouth breathing, inability to focus, academic challenges, bedwetting, snoring, nightmares, underdeveloped jaw, underdeveloped airway and more.
How does the HealthyStart® System work?
The HealthyStart® System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The soft, comfortable, removable devices gently guide the erupting teeth into their perfect alignments.
In addition, HealthyStart® aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw, expanding the arches to ensure space for incoming permanent teeth.
The Airway - Why does it matter?
When a child’s airway is narrow, underdeveloped or constricted in any way, the child will struggle to receive enough oxygen at night and may resort to mouth breathing, which compounds this issue.
The HealthyStart® treatment can help open up the airway of a growing child by bringing the upper and lower jaws forward and allowing the airway to widen. An open airway increases the oxygen the child receives to the brain, which restores the brain's function for the next day. This in turn leads to an improved immune system, hormonal system and an overall healthier child.
