Today’s kids are experiencing more health challenges than ever before, and many physicians don’t have good answers for why—or how to combat them. Discouraged, parents turn to medication to offer their children some relief.

Our jaws are
shrinking!

Your child’s face and jaw development determines everything from proper airway volume to the position and alignment of their teeth—even their facial beauty!

Scientists have found that our modern lifestyles and processed diets have altered our gene expression, resulting in smaller jaws. This is a serious concern because it impacts our ability to breathe and sleep correctly, causing a multitude of other issues!

SDB (Sleep
Disordered Breathing)

Our smaller jaws impact our airway development, which can lead to a wide variety of other symptoms and health issues.

Dentists can—and do!—play an essential role in caring for patients with certain sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD), and they are well-positioned to identify patients at greater risk of SRBD. These disorders can be caused by many different things and are treated most successfully when dentists and medical professionals work together.

Who does it affect?

A recent study found that up to 93% of kids have malocclusion (crooked teeth), which is a visual sign of the underdeveloped jaws that cause possible breathing issues.

In children, a dentist’s recognition of poor jaw or facial development (or other risk factors) early on may lead to a medical referral or intervention to treat and/or prevent SRBD. Because these issues are often related to smaller jaws and mouth breathing, it’s critical to train patients to shift to nasal breathing instead.

The Toothpillow system

The Toothpillow System is a preventative, pre-orthodontic method that corrects and supports proper jaw development, promoting nasal breathing and preventing—even fixing—dozens of health problems down the road. It gets to the root causes of misaligned teeth, often without the need for braces or tooth extraction.

This treatment is most effective for children between the ages of 3 and 12, and involves wearing removable appliances inside the mouth for 1-2 hours during the day and overnight while sleeping. These appliances help guide natural growth and development, mitigating the detrimental effects of modern living on their mouths, jaws, and airways.

“I have seen night and day changes in my 10 year old. He is more attentive and less reactive, more energy, and now doing things on his own without me constantly hounding him about his responsibilities. Since starting, I’ve even noticed his grades at school have improved! Being able sleep better at night has really helped him.”

Will it help with my crowded/crooked teeth?

Arrow
Maybe! Case by case our Providers will try to help promote a healthy airway by helping your child breathe better at night. That is our main goal. If we can also provide a nice smile and healthy tongue posture, those are the bonuses of our treatment. We can often show that as we are able to help promote jaw growth, we make space for their teeth to actually fit their mouth. Bye-bye crowding if that goal is achieved! Your child may still need orthodontics to finish the case and give a more aligned end result. Our hope is that they will first be properly rested and breathing better therefore a better breathing child, leads to a better sleeping child, who then becomes a better learning child.

How long does treatment last?

Arrow
All treatment time varies based on starting age and case severity. Your Toothpillow Provider will be able to give you some treatment goals and a relative estimate of the length of time. They will also be able to size your child up to the next Toothpillow appliance when they are ready for that transition.

Is Toothpillow covered by insurance?

Arrow
You can seek reimbursement through your dental insurance company for orthodontic services. Your dental plan may have a maximum or exclusions on the amount you spend on orthodontic services. For example, you may only have a certain amount of money you can spend per year and be covered for orthodontics, or there may be a waiting period between dental treatments. Many plans also apply a lifetime maximum to orthodontic treatment. You will want to contact your Medical/Dental insurance company directly to inquire about specifics related to your plan.

How can I refer people to Toothpillow?

Arrow
When your friends or family take the assessment, one of the first questions asks "Who's the person we can thank for referring you?" Make sure to have your friends and family enter your name when they fill out their child's assessment. For every referral who accepts treatment you will receive $100 gift card straight to your inbox and they will receive a $100 off treatment! It's a win-win!Become an ambassador today

What qualifies your doctors to treat my child?

Arrow
Our doctors are qualified Dentists. Dentists can and do play an essential role in the multidisciplinary care of patients with certain sleep related breathing disorders.

Our Dental licenses are current and they also carry special training in the field of Airway and Dental Sleep Medicine. This includes diplomats from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, and the American Sleep and Breathing Association amongst other accolades. They have treated thousands of kiddos already in this exact airway therapy.

How often does my child wear it?

Arrow
1-2 hours during the day and overnight while sleeping. These appliances help guide natural growth and development, mitigating the detrimental effects of modern living on their mouths, jaws, and airways.

What is the Toothpillow appliance made out of?

Arrow
The material of our Toothpillow appliance is made of BPA and latex-free medical-grade polymer.

What are some benefits of nasal breathing?

Arrow
Your nose is designed to help you breathe safely, efficiently, and properly. It can do this due to its ability to:
  • Filter out foreign particles. Nasal hairs filters out dust, allergens, and pollen, which helps prevent them from entering your lungs.
  • Humidify inhaled air. Your nose warms and moisturizes the air you breathe in. This brings the air you inhale to body temperature, making it easier for your lungs to use.
  • Produce nitric oxide. During nasal breathing, your nose releases nitric oxide (NO). NO is a vasodilator, which means it helps to widen blood vessels. This can help improve oxygen circulation in your body.
