The central issue for many children suffering from the effects of Sleep Disordered Breathing is a compromised airway. When a child’s airway is narrow, underdeveloped or constructive in any way, the child will struggle to receive enough oxygen at night and may resort to mouth breathing which compounds this issue. The HealthyStart™ treatment can help open up the airway of a growing child by bringing the upper and lower jaws forward and allowing the airway to widen.

An open airway increases the oxygen the child receives to the brain which restores the brains function for the next day. This in turn leads to an improved immune system, hormonal system and an overall healthier child.

Understanding the Danger of Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathing is not the same as nasal breathing, and often leads to a further compromise of the airway. Negative aspects of mouth breathing:

  • Can be a contributing factor to a compromised airway and in patients who require orthodontic treatment.
  • The proper exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen.
  • Prevents the proper function of the tongue and other orofacial muscles that children need to speak, swallow, chew, and function properly.
  • Can cause the delicate tissues of the tonsils and adenoids to swell and become enlarged further impacting a restricted airway.

Without proper tongue placement when sleeping, the jaw drops back, and takes the tongue with it which leads to snoring, swollen tonsils or adenoids, tooth decay, bed wetting, restless sleep, delayed or arrested growth, chronic allergies, eczema, asthma, depression, headaches, and the appearance of ADD/ADHD type of behavior. Children without proper REM sleep and lack of the necessary oxygen to their brain while sleeping have trouble in academics such as spelling, math and science.

Conventional Treatment Options

Before now, treatment options such as prescription drugs, surgery, clinical therapy, academic tutors, sleeping, and the years in braces have been the most commonly prescribed ‘solutions.’ 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. Therefore conventional treatments have been limited and ineffective, mainly because they address the symptoms rather than potential root cause.
