HealthyStart™ System in Marrero, LA

Revolutionary Treatment for Sleep-Disordered Breathing in Children

HealthyStart™ system in Marrero laAt Southern Dental Care, we know that although sleep-disordered breathing in children is common, it is not normal and can have a negative effect on their dental and overall health. A child who snores or breathes through their mouth while sleeping is at an increased risk for crooked permanent teeth, gum disease, facial deformities, and more serious conditions. That’s why we’re thrilled to offer the HealthyStart™ system in Marrero, LA as a treatment option for children who experience sleep-disordered breathing. This comfortable and safe appliance system works with the natural force of tooth eruption to direct your child’s teeth into their proper position, correct jaw alignment, expand arches so incoming teeth have sufficient space, and correct any improper oral habits.

How Does HealthyStart™ Work?

Depending on the age of your child, treatment with the BPA, silicone, and latex-free appliance may be completed in phases:

Habit-Corrector – Worn while sleeping for one-five months, this device corrects oral habits (like thumb-sucking) that can have a damaging effect on your child’s dental health. 

Second Phase – Your child will wear this customized appliance at night for two-six months. This device helps move incoming teeth into their correct position, aligns the jaws, and expands arches to allow room for incoming adult teeth. 

Final Phase – Once your child has four permanent teeth, the final phase of treatment begins. This appliance accommodates incoming adult teeth and ensures their proper alignment.

The HealthyStart™ system is an effective, pain-free way to set your child up for a lifetime of oral health – at up to half the cost of traditional braces! 

Signs that Your Child Needs an Evaluation

It’s important to schedule a screening with Dr. Andreotta if you notice any of the following conditions in your child:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Mouth breathing/snoring/teeth grinding
  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Jaws that “pop” when opening and closing
  • Misaligned teeth that close abnormally or without touching
  • Jaws and teeth that are not in proportion to the rest of the face
  • Chronic allergies
  • Bedwetting
  • Decreased performance in school
  • Nightmares/restless sleep
  • Swollen tonsils/adenoids
  • Irritability/anger/headaches

Early intervention is crucial as conditions left untreated can lead to more serious dental and health issues down the road for your child. Contact our experienced team today to get started!
