Every child deserves a Healthy Start™

Dr. Raman from Smiles by Design is a proponent of the Healthy Start™ programs, attributing them to the enhanced well-being and happiness of children. The Healthy Start™ system is a form of oral appliance therapy aimed at tackling the underlying issues of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). Studies indicate that the lack of oxygen resulting from SDB plays a significant role in various childhood health problems listed below. This system is crafted to support the correct growth of the jaw and airway, ensuring optimal airflow and encouraging proper nasal breathing, while also aligning your child’s teeth. As the development of the jaw and airway progresses, many symptoms associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing begin to fade away. With improved breathing, children have the opportunity to excel, develop, and reach their highest potential. Research suggests that approximately nine out of ten children are affected by SDB, leading to a broad spectrum of severe health issues related to SDB, such as:

  • Reduced IQ
  • Persistent Allergies
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Habitual Mouth Breathing
  • Nightmares
  • Snoring
  • Irritability
  • Recurrent Headaches
  • Enlarged Adenoids & Tonsils
  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Disturbed Sleep
  • Bedwetting
  • Under-eye Dark Circles
  • Stunted Growth
  • Poor Performance in Math, Science, & Spelling
