Healthy Start™

Now Offering Healthy Start® Sleep Disordered Breathing Appliances

Did you know?
An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB).

How does it effect children?
Children can experience a wide range of debilitating Sleep Disordered Breathing - related health disorders, such as:



  • Lower IQ

  • Chronic Allergies

  • Aggressive Behavior

  • Mouth Breathing

  • Swollen Adenoids & Tonsils

  • Daytime Drowsiness

  • Crooked Teeth

  • Restless Sleep

  • Bedwetting

  • Nightmares

  • Dark Circles Under the Eyes

  • Snoring

  • Irritability

  • Frequent Headaches

  • Arrested Growth

  • Low Grades in Math, Science, and Spelling

What is HealthyStart®?
The HealthyStart® System is an oral appliance therapy that promotes natural growth and development, which addresses the root causes of SDB. Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders shown above. The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth. As these areas develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear. When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential … just as nature intended.


Does it work?
Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause. Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue. Healthy Start addresses the root cause of Sleep Disorder Breathing while it straightens your child’s teeth without braces. When treatment begins early, the smiles that the HealthyStart® Appliance System creates are less likely to relapse. HealthyStart® creates healthier, happier kids who can breathe. 


Is it Safe?
HealthyStart® Appliances are FDA Cleared, BPA, Silicone and Latex Free, ISO Certified, and a Health Canada Class II Medical-Grade Device. Treatment with the HealthyStart® Appliance System promotes natural growth and development and is safe and effective. HealthyStart® is non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free and non-invasive therapy, is soft, comfortable and worn at night (or as directed) to assist parents who struggle with children affected by Sleep-Related Breathing Disorder, a restricted airway and crowded or crooked teeth.
