Sleep Disordered Breathing (SBD) refers to a variety of breathing conditions occurring during sleep. Often misdiagnosed or overlooked, an estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to SDB and sleep apnea. These children experience a wide range of debilitating SDB-related health disorders, such as:
The HealthyStart™ System is an FDA-Cleared oral appliance therapy that addresses the root cause of sleep apnea by promoting and guiding natural growth and development in children. Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health difficulties and disorders caused by Sleep Disordered Breathing.
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. A non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free and non-invasive therapy, HealthyStart appliances are soft, comfortable and worn at night, or as directed by our doctor, Dr. Rebecca Orsini. BPA, silicone and latex free, these appliances are ISO-Certified, and a Health Canada Class II Medical-Grade Device.
HealthyStart 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 System creates are less likely to relapse! HealthyStart creates healthier, happier kids who can breathe. Rarely has there ever been a single appliance or system with the power to impact your child’s health in so many positive ways. As a parent, you owe it to your child to give them every chance to succeed.
Many kids with associated health conditions mentioned above are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating their possible root cause. Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue. When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential, just as nature intended.
