An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). – JAOS, Bergersen / Stevens
These children experience a wide range of debilitating SDB-related health disorders, such as:
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 potential … just as nature intended.
Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause. Dr. Thurmond can help evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue. Please ask us for an easy sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.
Healthy Start not only addresses the root cause of Sleep Disorder Breathing, it simultaneously straightens your child’s teeth without braces. Best of all, when treatment begins early, the perfect smiles that the HealthyStart® Appliance System creates are less likely to relapse!
