The HealthyStart® System is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, pain-free approach to opening the airway and straightening teeth WITHOUT braces. HealthyStart® is rooted in 54 years of research and experience and has treated over 4 million children around the world. The HealthyStart® System consists of a series of appliances that address symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing, which 9 out of 10 children are affected by. These symptoms often go misdiagnosed or untreated and worsen with age. HealthyStart® aims to address these symptoms early-on so that they can be solved naturally.
Sleep disordered Breathing
These sleeping issues stem from airway disruption during sleep. As a child’s breathing is restricted, their body reacts as though the child is choking, resulting in lower oxygen levels, higher heart rate and higher blood pressure.
Improper positioning of teeth can also cause SDB symptoms, as close baby teeth can often signify that a child’s dental arches are too narrow. Adult teeth are bigger and wider than baby teeth, and if there isn’t enough room for the adult teeth to grow in, the teeth begin to crowd together or protrude. Dental arches that are too narrow lead to unhealthy airway development, as the lack of room hinders facial growth and compromises the airway.

Conventional "Treatment" Options
None of these conventional treatments can promote or develop a child’s airway and help them get the oxygen and sleep they need to be healthy. Conventional treatments have been limited and ineffective, mainly because they address the symptoms rather than the potential root cause.
The HealthyStart® System addresses the root cause early-in-life, because early treatment is crucial. 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.
