What Is HealthyStart?

Broadly speaking, HealthyStart is a non-invasive, drug-free, and painless way to open up a child’s airway and straighten teeth all without orthodontic treatment. This is an ideal solution for parents or guardians wanting to take a more holistic approach to their child’s oral health. HealthyStart, if used while children are young enough, can be just as effective as braces or clear aligners and more affordable in the long run.

That’s because the HealthyStart System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. Our dentists will use a series of custom oral appliances fitted to your child’s smile to guide incoming teeth and their lower jaw into the proper alignment. It accomplishes this in part by expanding the arches to ensure there’s space for adult teeth. 70-80% of kids do not need traditional orthodontic treatment once completing HealthyStart as prescribed.

Bonus: each device is soft, comfortable, and removable for easy wear!

What HealthyStart Can Do

Your child’s age and specific issues that need addressing will influence how their series of corrective oral appliances are tailored. For example, some children may gravitate toward mouth breathing while others require help focusing after a fitful night. If not treated early, sleep disordered breathing symptoms can potentially worsen with age.

HealthyStart appliances also address:

  • Academic challenges that result because of inadequate sleep
  • Heavy breathing while sleeping
  • Bedwetting
  • Sleepwalking or nightmares
  • Underdeveloped jaws and airways
