It can be easy for us to take for granted how important sleep is in our development. When life gets busy and we get behind on tasks or chores, one of the first things that we push to the side is sleep. The truth of the matter is that having a healthy sleep routine is a key part of having a healthy life.
Children’s physical, mental and emotional growth is definitely connected to their ability to sleep well. When children cannot sleep well, they have problems like hyperactivity, they may wet the bed, their growing may be stunted or they may have respiratory symptoms.
At first, when parents see that their children are dealing with these symptoms, they may not make the connection between the symptoms and their child’s inability to get a good night’s sleep. However, once parents realize that this is a problem for their child, they need to take immediate steps to help them improve their sleeping conditions.
Healthy Start™ is a treatment for Sleep Disordered Breathing that is non-invasive and does not use pharmaceuticals. Its goal is to help your child sleep better by straightening their teeth, as well as addressing other health issues. At the end of the day, your child is going to be able to sleep better and they are going to have a healthier smile, which is going to improve their overall quality of life.
Sleep disorders in children are a lot more common than people think. Researchers believe that 90 percent of children have some form of sleep disorder that is connected to their breathing.
Healthy Start™ is designed to provide your child with unique health benefits that cannot even be found in traditional orthodontics. The goal of this procedure is to encourage your child’s adult teeth to grow in straight from the beginning. This eliminates the need for your child to wear braces.
At the same time, this treatment encourages your child’s face and airways to develop properly. This is a treatment that can be started as soon as a child is two years old.
Healthy Start™ helps your child to avoid bad oral habits. It teaches your child to breathe through the nostrils and not through the mouth. And as a result, it helps to eliminate Sleep Disordered Breathing.
Many parents are surprised at the phenomenal change they see in their child’s health and well-being when they are able to eliminate Sleep Disordered Breathing. Their child is not as restless, they do not have as many nightmares, their aggressive behavior decreases, their allergies decrease and issues like bed wetting and ADHD start to disappear.
While correcting Sleep Disordered Breathing is not the cure-all for every single health issue your child may face, it is definitely a good place to start as it promotes proper facial growth, provides your child with straight teeth and helps them improve their breathing as they sleep.
Your child’s well-being is not something that you should take for granted. Take steps to guarantee that your child has a healthy upbringing that will allow them to develop into a healthy and well-adjusted adult.
