Beautiful Smiles Are Just The Beginning

Disordered sleep breathing (SDB) is an all-encompassing term for breathing disorders, from mild snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep When your kid’s breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption much like choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, ultimately disrupting sleep. Traditionally, there have been very few responses to address this issue, but now Drs. Gill is using Healthy Start to treat these issues.

Causes of Sleep-Disordered Breathing

Crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or mouth breathing can cause underdevelopment of the mouth and jaw when your kid’s nasal and upper airway is constricted. The Healthy Start system works to guide your kid’s teeth into their proper position, expanding and fully developing his or her mouth and jaw.

How Can I Tell If My Child Has Sleep-Disordered Breathing?

Does it ever sounds like a freight train is running through your kid’s room at night or as they lay asleep in back seat on the way home from a trip? Loud snoring is one of the most obvious signs that your baby may have poor sleep apnea. Gasping and snorting sounds while your kid sleeps may catch you off guard or even make you momentarily worry. These sounds stem from your kid moving from a deeper sleep to a lighter (towards waking up) struggling to breathe.

Common Sleep Disorder Breathing Symptoms Include:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Bedwetting
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Snoring
  • Swollen Adenoids/Tonsils
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Frequently Waking up
  • Excessively Sweating While Asleep
  • Restless Sleep
  • Nightmares
    • Irritability/ Aggressive Behavior
    • Difficulty in School Subjects of Math, Science, and Spelling
  • Arrested Growth
    • Daytime Drowsiness
  • Dark Circles under the eyes

How Does The Healthy Start System Work?

The Healthy Start System harnesses the natural dynamics of tooth eruption. Smooth, elegant, and removable appliances show gently erupted teeth into proper alignment. Additionally, Healthy Start promotes healthy and symmetric growth of the lower jaw, widens the entrance to ensure that there is sufficient space to erupt the emerging permanent teeth directly, and creates a jaw quality a worth it

Depending On The Age Of Your Child The System Uses a Series Of Appliances:

  1. Habit-Corrector: The habit-corrector eliminates or improves current oral habits that can damage your kid’s dental health. He or she wears the habit-corrector at night while sleeping. With a design similar to that of a pacifier, your kid will become used to wearing a device in his or her mouth every night. This step lasts about 1-5 months.
  2. Second Phase: Your kid will get an appliance customized and sized for your kid to wear every night. It aids the incoming teeth into their proper places, corrects jaw relations, and expands your kid’s arches for the incoming adult teeth. Your kid will wear this device for 2-6 months.
  3. Final Phase: The final treatment begins with a device that accommodates incoming adult teeth. It begins when your child has at least 4 permanent teeth. This phase is extremely important because his or her adult teeth are forming and the gum tissue fibers are starting to attach the teeth in the mouth. Healthy Start works perfectly to ensure the teeth erupt into proper alignment.
