What is Sleep Disordered Breathing and what is the connection to Dental health?
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.
How Can I Tell If My Child Has Sleep-Disordered Breathing and Dental Health issues ?
Does it ever sound like a freight train is running through your child’s room at night or as they lay asleep in the 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.

The Dental Connection
A HealthyStart® Provider can identify symptoms, address the root cause and treat by developing, guiding and straightening the teeth into the position that nature intended. Many young children have Sleep-related Breathing Disorder due to the dental arches that are underdeveloped, narrow and positioned too far back. A normal profile should have the lips and chin positioned well in front of the eyes with a strong jaw line. If children are not treated early during these formative years, these conditions will persist and can prevent proper growth and development of a child’s airway.
HealthyStart® is delivered exclusively by specially trained dentists consisting of a series of uniquely designed oral appliances worn a few hours a day and /or during the night while your child sleeps. These soft, comfortable appliances address the root cause of Sleep-related Breathing Disorder, promote nasal breathing while discouraging mouth breathing as they widen the dental arches and to help develop the jaw while straightening teeth – just as nature intended.
Parents feel the urgency but unfortunately the caregivers they turn to just don’t know what is happening or why they call Sleep Disordered Breathing the ‘Silent Epidemic.’
HealthyStart® is the Solution.

HealthyStart™ evaluates and treats the underlying root cause. Not a band-aid but if started early enough, a permanent fix.
- DON’T WAIT. EARLY DENTAL TREATMENT IS CRITICAL for CHILDREN
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.
