Trident General Dentistry is proud to offer the HealthyStart™ child orthodontic system at all of our locations in the Charleston, SC area.


As an alternative to braces, the HealthyStart appliance is an all-natural, non-surgical, and pain free option that helps straighten crooked teeth and reduce the symptoms of Sleep Disorder Breathing (SDB) by helping the growth and development of the jaws. The device can also help reduce the symptoms of ADD & ADHD in children by improving airways, breathing, and quality of sleep. HealthyStart can be covered under your dental insurance as orthodontic care and may even be covered under a health insurance plan.

The HealthyStart system can begin early in your child’s life and can be more effective the earlier you begin. Using a series of soft, comfortable and removable mouthpieces, HealthyStart guides erupting teeth into place while facilitating proper tongue behavior and breathing habits. The HealthyStart system supports natural chewing and mouth function to help grow the jaws and create room for teeth to come in straight.

HealthyStart works to support healthy growth and development of the child’s jaws, airway and teeth as they develop. The HealthyStart System helps to improve your child’s:



The tongue is the natural expander for the mouth. HealthyStart trains proper tongue function to facilitate proper growth and development of the jaws.



By assisting in proper growth and development of the jaws, HealthyStart helps to open your child’s airways and improve breathing. This leads to improved sleep, rest, behavior and performance.



HealthyStart guides your child’s teeth into place as they develop. Proper alignment allows for a healthy, amazing and natural smile!
