Open Spaces Pillows

When a child struggles to sleep with orthodontic headgear, it can be heartbreaking.

orthodontic headgear pillows for more comfortable children

Recently, you made an investment into someone’s new smile. Comfort and protect that smile during this braces transition phase with a new headgear pillow from Open Spaces™, designed especially for orthodontic and dental patients.

Regular pillows create obstacles to a good night’s sleep. A child who becomes frustrated and discouraged may end up falling behind in orthodontic treatment.

It doesn’t have to be that way. This unique pillow allows the user to sleep peacefully and comfortably without applying pressure to tender mouths or jaws. Made from soft, 100% non-allergenic fiberfill with a smooth cotton pillow cover.


My daughter recently has started using headgear. She was having a hard time sleeping with it, since she's usually a stomach or side sleeper. After I got the pillow and she tested it out, she said, "I am so happy right now, I could cry." Thank you, thank you, thank you for offering a product that has made this much more bearable for her!

Sleeping with orthodontic headgear


Sleep researchers have found that although most people change positions many times during the night, most people have a preferred sleep style. 

About 1/3 of people sleep on their sides, 1/3 sleep primarily in the face down position, and 1/3 sleep primarily on their backs.

Helping your child adjust to orthodontic headgear

We think the adjustment to sleeping with orthodontic headgear is difficult because the facebows apply an uneven pressure on the face and jaw when they sleep facedown or on their side. It is difficult to change your preferred sleep position. Our pillow allows patients to sleep in their preferred positions and eases the pressure of the facebow.

The Open Spaces™ pillow works because the cut out area reduces the pressure of the orthodontic headgear pressing against the cheek when a patient is positioned in a face down or face to the side position on the pillow. It can help anyone who is experiencing facial pain and who’s primary sleep style is face down or side position. The Open Spaces™ orthodontic pillow is recommended for face down and side style sleepers.

Solved our headgear problem.

My son kept bending his headgear at night from side sleeping. This pillow fixed that problem. No more bent headgear. Thank you! This pillow works! - Mary D. Verified Buyer



“This piece of equipment is truly excellent!
I had been using two pillows with my facebow lying in the gap between them. The pillow, with its slot, disposed of these problems.
Not to put too fine a point on it, it should be recommended to any orthodontic patient put in orthodontic headgear. “– Jon Millard, Australia
