Did you know that 9 out of 10 children experience symptoms associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing? Or that these symptoms typically go untreated and/or misdiagnosed, and may worsen with age? At Watertown Dental Care, we know that the HealthyStart System, which utilizes customized oral appliances to treat these issues while simultaneously straightening teeth, can completely transform your child’s sleep habits – and smile.

What causes Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) in children?

Sleeping issues arise when a child’s airway is restricted, which causes difficulties with breathing. When this happens, the body responds as if it’s choking, resulting in lower oxygen levels, an increased heart rate, and higher blood pressure.

Baby teeth that are improperly positioned in a child’s mouth can also cause these symptoms, as can oral arches that are too narrow. Left untreated, children with narrow dental arches will have their adult teeth grow in crowded or protruding, which can lead to unhealthy airway development.

Here are some additional symptoms that coincide with SDB:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • snoring
  • aggressive behavior
  • bedwetting
  • chronic allergies
  • ADD/ADHD
  • academic challenges
  • mouth breathing

How can HealthyStart help SDB?

By opening the airway via methods that bring the upper and lower jaws forward, this system maximizes airflow, which effectively treats and aids SBD symptoms. HealthyStart has also been shown to encourage mid-face growth and airway development in children who experience SBD.

How can HealthyStart straighten teeth?

Guiding teeth into their perfect alignment at half the cost of traditional braces or plastic aligners, this non-invasive, natural approach to straightening teeth works as well as (or better than!) well-known orthodontic options.

And because the system is applied earlier in life, teeth are guided naturally into their ideal alignment at a younger age, results are seen in a more timely manner, and oral habits that that require intervention are dealt with sooner.
