Achieve Straighter Teeth and A Better Night’s Sleep with HealthyStart® Dentistry

Giving your child the gift of a straight and beautiful smile is much more valuable than helping them look good in pictures. It can also prevent painful jaw issues such as TMJ. Another benefit to a new type of clear aligner is that it also treats and prevents obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that can shave years off your child’s life if left untreated.

The excellent news for residents of Denver, Highlands Ranch, Morrison, and Lakewood, Colorado, is that Dr. Allison Brown of High Forest Dental can help your child with HealthyStart® orthodontics, such as the HealthyStart® mouthguard, which is proven to improve your child’s smile while treating or preventing sleep apnea.

Give Your Child the Benefit of a Healthy Start

At High Forest Dental, Dr. Brown and her team are proud to offer a non-invasive, pain-free approach to strengthening teeth and improving airway health. The HealthyStart® system has been developed through over 54 years of research and experience and has already helped over 4 million children worldwide.

With HealthyStart®, they can enjoy the benefits of straight teeth without the hefty price tag of braces. We also go beyond what traditional orthodontic aligners offer, addressing the signs and symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing, which 9 out of 10 children experience. We can help your child achieve better airway health and straight teeth naturally by addressing these issues early on.

The Symptom of Sleep Disordered Breathing in Children

Sleep-disordered breathing can lead to various issues in children, from breathing problems during sleep to various other symptoms. Unfortunately, these issues are often left undiagnosed and untreated. A disruption in their airway can cause sleep disruption in children. This can cause their oxygen levels to drop, their heart rate to increase, and their blood pressure to rise as if they are choking. It’s important to recognize these symptoms and address the issue.

Having baby teeth that are too close together can be a sign that your child’s dental arches are too narrow.

When adult teeth come in, they’re generally more extensive than baby teeth, so if there isn’t enough space for them, the teeth may become crowded or start to stick out. This can cause problems with facial growth and airway development, leading to SDB-related symptoms.

Children suffering from sleep-disordered breathing often experience symptoms such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Bedwetting
  • Depression
  • Arrested growth
  • Trouble concentrating in school
  • Snoring
  • Mouth breathing
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Chronic allergies
  • Underdeveloped jaw
  • Bad grades in school

The revolutionary HealthyStart® System is a non-invasive approach to achieving a perfect smile. This natural method of straightening teeth is more evidence-based and economical than plastic aligners, traditional metal braces, or invasive oral surgery.
