The Perfect Start System™ is a revolutionary departure from traditional orthodontics into an early, non-invasive, natural way of straightening teeth. It works as well as or better than braces, plastic aligners, surgery, or any other options to achieve a picture-perfect, beautiful smile. Dr. Titensor is one of only a handful of dentists in Texas trained to offer this innovative new system.
Dr. Titensor and his dental team at Titensor Dental, in Flower Mound, Texas, are concerned about your smile and dental needs at any age, but they do believe the sooner the better to start dental check ups and decide on a dental régime. For their younger patients ages 4-7, they now offer a new system that replaces traditional orthodontics: The Perfect Start System. Perfect Start is just as its name suggests; it is a start-up system to help your child's teeth come in properly. Its use provides no discomfort, and it is a natural way to guide your child's teeth to perfect alignment. However, Perfect Start is also an effective teething straightening for preteens, teens, and adults.
After a thorough dental checkup around age 4 or 5, Dr. Titensor will discuss possible dental conditions your child may develop that warrant Perfect Start. For example, if he sees likely crowding of the teeth, he will recommend Perfect Start. The Perfect Start device provides for natural jaw expansion and guides the teeth to erupt in a straight manner. If an overbite is present, it is vital that The Perfect Start System is used between the ages of 4 and 7 while your child is still growing. Other dental issues Perfect Start shows effective correction are a gummy smile, a crossbite, and an open-bite. In addition, Dr. Titensor may recommend Perfect Start for habitual behavior such as thumb sucking or snoring.
For patients between the ages of 4 and 7, the Perfect Start System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The soft, comfy, removable device tenderly guides the erupting teeth into their perfect positions. In addition, Perfect Start aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw while tending to facial aesthetics, as well.
If your child is between the ages of 4 and 7, Perfect Start is a three-step process:
Dr. Titensor knows that traditional orthodontics are an effective means for teeth straightening; however, with Perfect Start your child can successfully achieve straight teeth in the privacy of your own home without wearing uncomfortable metal braces. In addition, while correcting and preventing orthodontic issues, Perfect Start results are achieved in less time as compared to traditional orthodontics, which allows for less cost.
Perfect Start is just as effective for older children from ages 8 and up. The same soft, comfy, removable device is available for preteens (8 -12) and for teens and adults (13+). No longer is there a need to wear metal braces or aligners to achieve straight teeth! The steps are similar to those for 4-7 year olds, with some variations.

Dr. Titensor and his dental team work hard to bring their patients the most up-to-date dental technology with the most benefits. When you choose the Perfect Start System, you experience the following benefits:
These are the just the dental benefits of the Perfect Start System. Perfect Start is also beneficial in the treatment of pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB). SDB is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from mild snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child's breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption as choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, and disrupting sleep. In its efforts to maintain elevated standards to provide overall, general health care, Titensor Dental's up-to-date research learned the Perfect Start device aids in correcting SDB, once again setting the standards in patient care in Flower Mound, Texas.
When your child's nasal and upper airway is constricted, the cause is usually an underdeveloped mouth and jaw: crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or breathing through the mouth. The Perfect Start system works to guide your child's teeth into their proper position, expanding and fully developing his or her mouth.
Does it sounds like a train is traveling through your child's room at night? Loud soring is the first tell-tale sign that your child may have Sleep-Disordered Breathing. Gasping and snorting sounds may make you wonder if a bull is spending the night with your child. These sounds stem from your child waking up from his or her sleep struggling to breathe. Dr. Titensor knows that interrupted sleep in children can cause long-term side effects.
When your child does not get a good night's sleep, she or he may become irritable, may require sleep during the day, and may have difficulty concentrating in school. On the other hand, your child's behavior could become hyperactive. These behaviors could possibly lead to the following consequences of SDB.
Dr. Titensor and his dental staff thrive on offering time-tested procedures to their patients. Researchers and developers have carefully design the Perfect Start System, adaptable to each patient's individual needs. Dr. Titensor's ability to determine the optimal Perfect Start System for your child makes him the dentist you want to correct your child's SDB.
Titensor Dental wants your child, your preteen, your teen, and even you to have the best smile ever and overall, good health. The Perfect Start System is actually the perfect way to start!
