16 Mile Dental is proud to offer the HealthyStart® child orthodontic system. The HealthyStart® System is an oral appliance therapy that promotes natural growth and development. It is non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free and non-invasive therapy that helps straighten crooked teeth and reduce the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) by helping the growth and development of the jaws.

Sleep Disordered Breathing is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from quiet snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child’s breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption as choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, and disrupting sleep, which impacts your child’s dental and overall health.

 

Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders shown below. An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). – JAOS, Bergersen / Stevens

 

Compromised and Developed Airway.jpg

Treatment with the HealthyStart® Appliance System promotes natural growth and development, it is safe and effective, as it addresses the root causes of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). 

 

The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth.  As these areas develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear.  When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential … just as nature intended.

 

HealthyStart® Appliances are FDA Cleared, BPA, Silicone and Latex Free, ISO Certified, and a Health Canada Class II Medical-Grade Device. The appliance is soft, comfortable and worn at night (or as directed) to assist parents who struggle with children affected by Sleep-Related Breathing Disorder, a restricted airway and crowded or crooked teeth.

 

Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause.  Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue.  Please take the sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.  

Healthy Start not only addresses the root cause of Sleep Disorder Breathing it simultaneously straightens your child’s teeth without braces. Best of all, when treatment begins early, the perfect smiles that the HealthyStart® Appliance System creates are less likely to relapse!
