Sleep Apnea Treatment Without Braces With Healthystart

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

Does it ever sound like a freight train is running through your child’s room at night or as they lay asleep in back seat on the way home from a trip? Loud snoring is one very apparent indication that your child may have Sleep-Disordered Breathing. Gasping and snorting sounds while your child sleeps may catch you off guard or even make you momentarily worry. These sounds stem from your child moving from a deeper sleep to a lighter sleep (towards waking up) and 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

Don’t Wait. Early Treatment is Critical

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.

Prevent Rather than Correct

The Healthy Start System™ is a revolutionary departure from traditional orthodontics that treats children early, is non-invasive, and is a natural way of straightening teeth. It works as well as or better than braces, plastic aligners, surgery, or any other options to achieve a picture-perfect, beautiful smile. Dr. Pham and Shaenfield Smiles are one of only a few doctors in this area trained to offer this innovative new system!

Straight Teeth No Braces

At nearly half the cost of traditional braces, the HealthyStart™ System is a revolutionary departure from traditional orthodontics into an early, non-invasive, natural way of straightening teeth. It works as well as or better than braces, plastic aligners, surgery, or any other option to achieve a picture-perfect, beautiful smile.

Benefits of the Healthy Start System

Alvin Smiles and their staff work hard to bring their patients the most cutting-edge dental technology with the most benefits. When you choose the Healthy Start System, you experience the following benefits:

  • Achieve a perfect smile WITHOUT braces, or surgery
  • Prevent crooked teeth versus correcting crooked teeth
  • Achieve permanent results
  • Experience no discomfort
  • Treats naturally working with your facial growth and development

Better Smiles are Just the Beginning

Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from mild snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child’s breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption much like choking, therefore, increasing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, ultimately disrupting sleep. Traditionally, there have been very few answers to treating this issue, but Green Apple Pediatric Dentistry is now using Healthy Start to treat these issues.

HOW DOES THE HEALTHY START SYSTEM WORK?

The HealthyStart™ System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The soft, comfortable, removable devices gently guide the erupting teeth into their perfect positions. In addition, Healthy Start aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw, expanding the arches to ensure incoming permanent teeth have enough room to erupt in straight and develop proper oral habits.

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

Habit-Corrector: The habit-corrector eliminates or improves current oral habits that can damage your child’s dental health. He or she wears the habit-corrector at night while sleeping. With a design similar to that of a pacifier, your child will become used to wearing a device in his or her mouth every night. This step lasts about 1-5 months.

Second Phase: Your child will get an appliance customized and sized for your child to wear every night. It aids the incoming teeth into their proper places, corrects jaw relations, and expands your child’s arches for the incoming adult teeth. Your child will wear this device for 2-6 months.

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.

Sleep Disordered Breathing in children is a much more critical and common problem than what has previously been thought. SDB can manifest itself in a variety of symptoms that can be easily overlooked, misdiagnosed, and most unfortunately left untreated.

Every Child Deserves a Healthy Start!
