If so, they could be suffering from a Sleep-Related Breathing Disorder, a potentially serious or life-threatening condition caused by a compromised airway. A narrow, underdeveloped or constricted airway can interfere with oxygen flow while sleeping, leading to these symptoms or other, more serious complications. Research has shown that oxygen deprivation due to untreated sleep-related breathing disorders is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders listed above. But all too often kids have their only their symptoms treated using powerful drugs that ignore the root causes of the problem.
The HealthyStart™ System
The Healthy Start System is oral appliance therapy that is specifically tailored to address sleep disordered breathing in adolescents by promoting proper growth and development of the jaw and airway while simultaneously straightening your child’s teeth - without braces!. As their airways grow and develop, guided by a Healthy Start appliance, the symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders disappear.
As a DreamSleep Qualified office, we are trained to address the root cause of adolescent sleep-related breathing disorders. We will create a specially-designed, custom-fitted oral appliance to develop, guide and straighten your child’s teeth so that air can flow unimpeded during sleep. Treating these issues early can help ensure your child’s airway grows properly, preventing a more serious condition from developing later in life.
If you suspect your child has difficulty breathing at night, it is important to get examined by a qualified professional before symptoms progress. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation!
