Childrens' Dental Health Month: "Face It - Children are Growing-into-Problems and not Out-of-Them"

It is a Growth and Development consequence to Sleep Disorder Breathing that can even change the appearance of our children.

​​This IS a serious trend where oral habits like mouth breathing are accompanying 9 out of 10 children for life and leading to permanent health issues.  These habits can and do produce arrested or altered growth, crooked teeth, snoring, bedwetting, ADD ADHD type behavior and may even affect the profile of their face.

But doctors like Dr. Anthony Marino, DDS, MS, of Magic Braces in Vackaville CA. say, “that in 30 years of treating with the HealthyStart™ advanced removable orthodontic and orthopedic appliances, we are taking children away from the problems they are growing into.” 

This safe, non-pharmaceutical approach with a permanent and comprehensive solution in an FDA Approved treatment has been used in over 3 million cases around the world.

CEO Leslie Stevens states, “It is an EARLY Childhood Treatment, avoiding years of damage that could be only marginally corrected later in life.  We like to start even in the toddler years and before they reach puberty, to give children every advantage and help them reach their greatest potential.”

The science and research connecting an airway centric, nasal breathing habit to the sleep connection, has moved more MD’s to work with the pediatric and general dentists or orthodontists who screen for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  Providing this all natural approach and well researched treatment is now becoming the Standard of Care for the children with outward symptoms of SDB.  The HealthyStart™ protocol is now included in dental schools internationally and into large medical groups and hospitals by adding the treatment to the curriculum and clinical programs.

For parents, it may start in conversation with their pediatrician, discussing concerns with childhood bed-wetting, physical appearances, aggressive behavior, snoring, night terrors, allergies, arrested growth or the tooth decay, inflamed tonsils and adenoids that come with mouth breathing.  The crooked, crowded teeth and grinding may seem like a closer dental fit- but as it turns out – they are all tied together.  It is a Growth and Development problem.

As CFO Jessica Fields of Complete Health Dentistry, Lebanon Ohio puts it, “We have a serious Medical Problem with a Dental Solution.”
