Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from mild snoring all the way to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child’s breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption much like choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, and ultimately disrupting sleep. Traditionally, there have been very few answers to treating this issue, but Dr. Gillespie is now using HealthyStart® Start to treat many of these issues.
Crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or mouth breathing can cause underdevelopment of the mouth and jaw when your child’s nasal and upper airway is constricted. The HealthyStart® System works to guide your child’s teeth into their proper position, expanding and fully developing his or her mouth and jaw.
Does it ever sound like a freight train is running through your child’s room at night or as they lay asleep in back seat on the way home from a trip? Loud snoring is one very apparent indication that your child may have Sleep-Disordered Breathing. Gasping and snorting sounds while your child sleeps may catch you off guard or even make you momentarily worry. These sounds stem from your child moving from a deeper sleep to a lighter (towards waking up) struggling to breathe.
HealthyStart® System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The soft, comfortable, removable devices gently guide the erupting teeth into their perfect positions. In addition, Healthy Start aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw, expanding the arches to ensure incoming permanent teeth have enough room to erupt straight and develop proper oral habits.
Dr. Gillespie and their staff only offer time-tested and proven procedures to their patients. Researchers and developers have carefully designed the HealthyStart® System, adaptable to each patient’s individual needs. Dr. Gillespie‘s ability to determine the optimal HealthyStart® System for your child makes him the dentist you want to correct your child’s Sleep Disordered Breathing symptoms.
