You know the importance of athletic mouthguards for safety, but did you know that the right mouthpiece could also improve your performance?
The Pure Power Mouthguard (PPM) designs its custom mouthpieces to optimize neuromuscular harmony and improve athletic performance.
The Science of Jaw Alignment
For a large segment of the population, the lower jaw is not in an optimal position. The strain that facial muscles experience to keep the jaw in alignment, in turn, negatively affects overall body posture and performance.
PPM, a custom-fit mouthpiece, corrects this muscular problem by keeping the jaw in its optimal position, improving muscle and joint alignment and enhancing athletic performance.
Proven Benefits of PPM
A study by Rutgers University has shown that PPM does, in fact, improve athletic performance. Specifically, the blind crossover study showed that the device improves vertical jump and peak power performance. Anecdotal reports also indicate that use of the PPM leads to increased strength, balance, and breathing.
Additionally, the mouthpiece offers protection from oral-facial injuries, and concussion from high-impact sports, such as basketball, hockey, and martial arts.
How It Works
After consulting with our top-notch neuromuscular dentists near Houston, you will be able to decide if PPM is your best option for safety and performance enhancement.
Once you make the decision, the process is simple:
- We use a low-frequency TENS (Transcutaneous Electro-Neural Stimulation) unit to relax your muscles and allow them to fall into their optimal alignment.
- Once your jaw is relaxed and in its ideal position, we use a mandibular scanning unit to record this alignment and create a digital model of the teeth, which is then sent to the lab for creation of the PPM.
- Within just a few days, you will have your custom mouthpiece.
- Each time you wear the PPM, your facial muscles will return to the relaxed, aligned position.
In Good Company
Many successful professional athletes are raving about PPM. From former baseball player Manny Ramirez, to golfer Steve Elkington, to NBA star Shaquille O’Neal, athletes in almost every sport say the mouthpiece gives them that extra edge to stay ahead of the competition.
