& Second Opinions
Research has revealed that up to 15% experience one or more symptoms due to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SBD). Healthy Start from our Trophy Club, TX dentist can help. In addition to making a child consistently tired, SBD has also been shown to lead to a laundry list of symptoms, such as:
Healthy Start uses a custom-made oral appliance to guide the growth and development of a child’s mouth, jaws, and airway. It addresses the root cause of SDB (a narrow or restricted airway) and helps a child avoid the oxygen deprivation during sleep that causes the symptoms listed above.
A child simply wears a removable appliance to bed that applies gentle pressure to widen the hard palate (roof of the mouth) while also promoting nasal breathing. These appliances have also been shown to straighten the teeth and prevent them from becoming crooked in the first place. This results in a child being able to breathe properly so they are able to easily learn, grow, and thrive.
Right now, millions of children are being treated with medication, therapy, or even surgery for the health disorders touched on above, but the root cause isn’t being addressed at all. If you and your child have already tried other treatments without success, our dental office can evaluate them for a sleep breathing issue.
To get started, all you have to do is complete our short sleep questionnaire. The Healthy Start system doesn’t require any medication or invasive procedures to work. All your child has to do is wear an appliance that is designed just for them, and that’s it! After a short adjustment period, there are no unpleasant side effects, and your child will continue to get better and better as time goes on.
Healthy Start appliances are FDA-cleared and made of BPA-free, Silicone-free, and Latex-free materials. They are ISO certified and considered a medical-grade device by U.S. health agencies. They work by simply promoting natural growth and are proven to be safe and effective.
If you believe that your child is struggling with Sleep Disordered Breathing, or if they aren’t responding to other treatments for the conditions listed above, Healthy Start might just be the lasting solution they need. Contact our dental office today to get started.
