Statistics show over 40 Million Children can be affected by Sleep Disorders and 9 out of 10 Children are suffering from one or more symptoms of sleep related breathing symptoms. HealthyStart™ evaluates and treats the underlying root cause. Not a band-aid but if started early enough, a permanent fix.
When children are young, their bodies are able to adjust and mold easily, particularly in their mouth and their bone structure. Crowded teeth may force the tongue forward against their teeth, narrowing their dental arch and constricting the airway. Breathing properly is necessary for the health of a child.
20+ years of research ties Sleep Disordered Breathing to crooked and crowded teeth, arrested growth and development, behavioral challenges which can have a similar appearance to ADD / ADHD and even Bed-Wetting. The symptoms associated with SDB can vary from one child to the next, but even mild SDB (mouth breathing, crowded teeth, snoring) can point to serious underlying health issues and the need for treatment.
The central issue for many children suffering from the effects of Sleep Disordered Breathing is a compromised airway. When a child’s airway is narrow, underdeveloped or constructive 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.
