Help for Kids with Sleep Disorders

Does your child suffer from sleep disordered breathing (SBD)? Let us help!

The dentists at Blue Back Dental are certified HealthyStart® providers, trained to help kids who suffer from sleep-related disorders using a non-invasive, pain-free oral appliance rather than prescription drugs.

If your child has SBD or displays signs of sleep-related disorders, the dentists at Blue Back Dental are happy to meet with you and your child to determine if the oral appliance may be beneficial in your specific case.

  • Aggressive behavior
  • Mouth breathing
  • Swollen adenoids & tonsils
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Crooked teeth
  • Restless sleep
  • Bedwetting
  • Teeth grinding
  • Nightmares
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Snoring
  • Irritability
  • Frequent headaches
  • Arrested growth
  • Low grades in math, science & spelling

About the HealthyStart® Appliance System

The HealthyStart® System is a safe, effective, FDA-approved oral appliance therapy for children with sleep-related breathing disorders, a restricted airway, or crowded or crooked teeth.

The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing. The oral appliance, which is soft, comfortable, and free of BPA, silicone and latex, is worn at night (or as directed) to help children breathe more easily. When the child can breathe properly, many of the symptoms of SDB will disappear.

HealthyStart® not only addresses the root cause of SDB, it simultaneously straightens your child’s teeth without braces. Best of all, when treatment begins early the results are more likely to be permanent, for healthier, happier kids who can breathe comfortably and achieve their full potential.
