Beautiful Smiles Are Just The Beginning

Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from mild snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child’s breathing is disrupted, their body recognizes the disruption much like choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, which ultimately affects sleep.


Causes of Sleep-Disordered Breathing

Crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or mouth breathing can cause underdevelopment of the mouth and jaw when your child’s nasal and upper airway is constricted. The Healthy Start system works to guide your child’s teeth into their proper position, expanding and fully developing his or her mouth and jaw.
