What is HealthyStart?
HealthyStart is a unique oral appliance that has two objectives:
- Proper jaw and tooth development
- Appropriate tongue position and open airway
How does HealthyStart work?
The Healthy Start appliance is worn for a few hours during the day or at night to stimulate nasal breathing while working with the child’s natural growth pattern to widen the dental arch and properly develop the jaw.
During the process of tooth eruption, the HealthyStart appliance gently encourages the teeth to grow in the proper position. As we have learned in our years of orthodontic experience in our Cary, NC dental practice, teeth will return to their original (eruption) position if retainers are not diligently worn for a lifetime. With HealthyStart, the teeth grow in the correct position so there is no improper place to return. Therefore teeth are permanently straightened and do not require retention (retainers).
In addition to the lifetime benefit of straight teeth, the appliance positions the jaw to encourage nasal breathing. HealthyStart seats (places) the tongue on the roof of the mouth instead of the floor of the mouth. This opens the airway and causes high oxygen saturation in the bloodstream. These actions produce restful sleep and encourage the natural release of growth hormones. Additionally, the children are less distracted and not as tired during the day. Studies suggest a better performance in school and fewer occurrences of ADHD with proper use of the HealthyStart appliance.
