Del Rio Dental Studio is a proud provider of HealthyStart® early orthodontic treatment. This unique treatment system uses an oral appliance to help resolve a wide range of orthodontic problems for your child, such as misalignment, bite issues, and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).
One of the primary benefits of HealthyStart is that it is an early orthodontic intervention, helping resolve issues before they develop and worsen. Early treatment with HealthyStart can prevent the need for your child to have braces later on. Treatment is generally most effective when it begins around the age of seven or below.
Sleep-disordered breathing is one of the most common issues that HealthyStart is used to treat. Your child may be experiencing this condition if you notice these signs:
SDB is caused by constricted nasal passages, which inhibit breathing during sleep. HealthyStart improves breathing patterns by expanding arches and adjusting jaw position.
Your child’s HealthyStart treatment will require the use of a custom oral appliance designed to guide the development of their jaw and the position of their teeth. This oral appliance is comfortable, and your child only needs to wear it at night.
HealthyStart helps guide your child’s jaw and teeth during their development, ensuring proper position and alignment. This provides a solution for many orthodontic issues, including:
Of course, every child’s development is unique. To find out whether HealthyStart is a viable option for your child, visit Del Rio Dental Studio. We carry out a careful evaluation with the latest technology to determine the nature and extent of your child’s orthodontic issues and design a customized treatment plan.
Guiding your child’s teeth and jaw during early development requires less intensive treatment than doing so later on. In addition, HealthyStart is a more comfortable treatment option than braces and is only worn at night.
For many families, a removable oral appliance like HealthyStart is more affordable and preferred to unremovable braces or permanent retainers.
With HealthyStart, we provide effective treatment for a range of orthodontic issues. Your child’s long-term oral health will be greatly improved by resolving sleep-disordered breathing, misalignments, bite issues, and other concerns.
In many cases, HealthyStart prevents the need for more serious treatment later on. Instead of spending years in braces, your child could use HealthyStart oral appliances while their teeth are still developing. That means more affordable treatment and fewer visits to the orthodontist.
