Holistic Dental Care

Care beyond your visit

At Inspire Kids Dental, we embrace a dental philosophy that goes beyond treating dental problems as they arise. We believe in promoting holistic health and prioritizing preventive care over purely restorative treatments.


At Inspire Kids Dental, we believe in taking a holistic approach to dental care, incorporating the NEWSTART health principles into our practice. The NEWSTART principles encompass a comprehensive approach to health and well-being, focusing on key areas that contribute to overall wellness. By integrating these principles into the field of dentistry, we strive to provide a well-rounded and transformative dental experience for our patients.


We recognize the significant impact of nutrition on oral health. Our team emphasizes the importance of a balanced and wholesome diet that promotes strong teeth and gums. We provide nutritional counseling, guiding families on making healthy food choices that contribute to optimal oral health.


Physical activity not only benefits our bodies but also plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. We encourage children to engage in regular exercise and emphasize the importance of physical fitness in promoting overall wellness.


Hydration is essential for oral health. Drinking an adequate amount of water helps wash away food particles, stimulate saliva production, and maintain optimal oral hydration. We promote the importance of staying hydrated as part of our preventive dental care approach.


Exposure to sunlight is vital for the body’s production of vitamin D, which is crucial for strong teeth and bones. We encourage outdoor activities and safe sun exposure, allowing children to benefit from natural vitamin D synthesis.


Practicing moderation in all aspects of life, including oral habits, is key to maintaining good oral health. We educate children and their families on the importance of moderation in consuming sugary snacks and beverages, as well as the potential risks associated with tobacco and alcohol use.


Breathing clean air is essential for overall health, including oral health. We educate families about the importance of avoiding tobacco smoke and maintaining good air quality to prevent oral health issues.


Sufficient rest and sleep are vital for the body’s ability to heal and regenerate, including oral tissues. We emphasize the importance of a consistent sleep routine and adequate rest to support optimal oral health.


Trust the team at Inspire Kids Dental to integrate the NEWSTART health principles into your child’s dental care. By addressing not only their dental needs but also their overall well-being, we strive to inspire healthy smiles that last a lifetime. 

Airway Health

Mouth breathing is not normal breathing and can take a toll on a person!

At Inspire Kids Dental, we understand the critical connection between airway health and overall well-being. The airway plays a vital role in breathing, sleeping, and overall quality of life. As part of our commitment to holistic dental care, we pay close attention to airway health and its impact on your child’s oral health and development.


If you have noticed any signs or symptoms related to airway issues in your child, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced dental team. Together, we can create a customized plan to improve airway health and optimize your child’s oral and overall well-being. Trust Inspire Kids Dental to provide compassionate care and guide your child towards a healthier, more vibrant future.

Signs & Symptoms

Airway issues can manifest in various signs and symptoms. Some signs & symptoms of obstructed airway in children include: bedwetting, crooked teeth, ADHD, asthma, chronic allergies, teeth grinding, headaches, anxiety, aggression, snoring and sleep apnea. If airway issues are not addressed early on it can lead to hypothyroidism, alzheimer’s, dementia, hypertension, heart attack, cancer, depression, and fibromyalgia.

Our Perspective

Our experienced dental team is trained to identify potential airway issues during routine dental examinations. We assess your child’s oral structures, jaw development, and tongue posture to detect any abnormalities or signs of airway restriction. Through our comprehensive approach, we aim to identify and address airway-related concerns at an early stage.

Ways to Improve Airway Health

At Inspire Kids Dental, we take a proactive approach to improve airway health and enhance your child’s overall well-being. We offer several treatment options tailored to their specific needs:

1. Myofunctional Therapy: We provide myofunctional therapy, which focuses on exercises to strengthen oral muscles and improve tongue posture. This helps in opening the airway and promoting proper breathing patterns.

2. Orthodontic Solutions: Our orthodontic treatments, such as expansion devices, can help widen the dental arches and create more space for the tongue, promoting better airflow and reducing airway restriction.

3. Oral Appliances: For patients with sleep-related breathing disorders like sleep apnea, we may recommend custom oral appliances. These devices help reposition the jaw and tongue, allowing for better airflow during sleep.

4. Referral to Specialists: In some cases, we may collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as sleep specialists or ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctors, to ensure comprehensive care for your child’s airway health.

By addressing airway health concerns, we aim to improve your child’s quality of life, promote better sleep, enhance cognitive function, and support their overall development.
