Is your child experiencing behavioral issues, mouth breathing, trouble sleeping, snoring?

The HealthyStart system could be your lifesaver…

Healthy Start is an innovative approach to orthodontics that uses a series of removable oral appliances to gently guide teeth into their proper positions. This system has many benefits over traditional braces or aligners, especially for children. One of the primary advantages of Healthy Start is that it addresses underlying issues, such as breathing problems or tongue positioning, which can contribute to crooked teeth. By correcting these issues early on, the appliances can guide teeth into place more naturally and effectively, often reducing the need for more invasive orthodontic treatments in the future.

HealthyStart is non-invasive and gentle on the teeth and gums. Unlike traditional braces, which use brackets and wires to shift teeth, Healthy Start uses a series of soft, flexible appliances that gradually move teeth into their correct positions. This can lead to a more comfortable and pain-free orthodontic experience, without the discomfort or irritation that can come with traditional braces.

Finally, HealthyStart can also improve overall oral health. By correcting breathing problems or tongue positioning, this system can help improve sleep quality and reduce the risk of sleep apnea. Additionally, by guiding teeth into their proper positions, Healthy Start can help to reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by making it easier to clean and maintain a healthy smile. 

While the system is not specifically designed to address behavioral issues, it is possible that improving a child’s oral health and overall well-being through the HealthyStart system could lead to improvements in their behavior.

For example, if a child has sleep-disordered breathing or other oral health issues, they may experience sleep disturbances that can contribute to behavioral problems such as irritability, inattention, and hyperactivity. By addressing these underlying health issues, the child may experience improved sleep quality, leading to better behavior and attention during the day.

Furthermore, some studies have shown a link between oral health and mental health, with poor oral health being associated with an increased risk of depression and anxiety. Improving a child’s oral health through the HealthyStart system may therefore help to support their mental health and reduce the risk of behavioral issues related to these conditions.

Overall, HealthyStart is an excellent option for anyone looking for a safe, effective, and non-invasive approach to orthodontic treatment with all the benefits that come with great oral hygiene.
