At Musso Family Dentistry, we participate in the Healthy Start System™, an all-natural, non-pharmaceutical, non-surgical treatment option.
What does the Healthy Start System do?
STRAIGHTENS TEETH, WITH NO BRACES
Our proprietary advanced orthodontic/orthopedic HealthyStart™ appliance is BPA, Silicone / Latex Free and is FDA Cleared and American made. The HealthyStart™ treatment is safe, pain free, non-invasive and effective
ADDRESSES THE ROOT CAUSE OF SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING
Statistics show over 40 Million Children can be affected by Sleep Disorders and 9 out of 10 Children are suffering from one or more symptoms of sleep-related breathing symptoms. HealthyStart™ evaluates and treats the underlying root cause. Not a band-aid but if started early enough, a permanent fix
DON’T WAIT. EARLY TREATMENT IS CRITICAL
When children are young, their bodies are able to adjust and mold easily, particularly in their mouth and their bone structure. Crowded teeth may force the tongue forward against their teeth, narrowing their dental arch and constricting the airway.
Our dentists are proud to provide the Healthy Start System in Garland, Texas, and the surrounding areas of Rockwall, Dallas, Lakewood, Rowlett, Richardson, Sachse, Wylie, Plano, Mesquite, and Highland Park, Texas. We invite you to call us at 972-840-8477 for more information and schedule your child’s consultation with Dr. Mike and Dr. Mark Musso.
Is your child a candidate for Healthy Start?
There are many things about your child’s health that are important to know, but that we often don’t get to see while they’re at our office. There are signs to look for that you may not have known were connected to your child’s teeth or health. By looking for and tracking these “signs and symptoms,” we can have a complete picture of your child’s overall health. Find our assessment HERE.
You don’t have to spend a lot of time with this assessment tool; just observe their behavior at different times during the day. You want to see their most natural behaviors, so try not to let your child know that you are watching.
Check off what you see. If you’re not sure, check it anyway. Make comments if you’d like!

Conventional Treatment Options
Before now, treatment options have been limited and ineffective, mainly because they address symptoms rather than the potential root cause.
Prescription drugs, surgery, clinical therapy, academic tutors, sleep aids, and years in metal braces have been the most commonly prescribed “solutions.” Yet none of these conventional treatments can promote or develop a child’s airway and help them get the oxygen and sleep they need to thrive.
A Better Way to Help Your Child
“My son Justin suffered from several conditions that no one had answers for. He couldn’t sleep, behaved badly, had difficulty at school, and so much more. Perfect Start has given him a completely new lease on life. He sleeps soundly. He’s off his medications. He’s doing much better in school – academically and socially. I now have 4 of my 5 kids in Perfect Start and it has totally changed our lives. I can’t thank you enough!” – Sheri O.
We encourage you to contact Musso Family Dentistry today at 972-840-8477 for more information about the Healthy Start System, and to schedule an appointment for your child with one of our caring dentists.
