St. Louis Jaw Pain - Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMD, TMJ Treatment
No matter what sport you play or how often you
play it, chances are you would like to improve your game. When given the right tools, most athletes seek to enhance their overall performance and increase their competitive edge.
Dr. Quigless and his staff are proud to offer you a way to do just that: the Pure Power Mouthguard. Something as simple - yet effective - as wearing a custom made mouthguard could make you a stronger, more flexible and well-balanced athlete.
Many people have misaligned jaw joints. The jaw muscles become chronically tense trying to correct the jaw movement. When the lower jaw is properly positioned in relation to the upper jaw, the muscles in head, neck and shoulders can relax. Your body will move into a corrected position. Then your body's core will become more stable.
Creating this stability will help you become more balanced. With muscle tension alleviated, your body can perform better. A PPM can give you better accuracy, precision and overall performance in your chosen sport or sports.
Anyone Serious About Athletics Can Benefit from a PPM
Many professional athletes, including Manny Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Eric Chavez of the Oakland A's, are PPM users. But you do not have to be on a professional sporting team to reap the benefits of using a PPM.
The PPM will be specifically created for your personal needs. Only a PPM-certified dentist like Dr. Quigless can assess your dental status and custom fit your PPM. It will be designed only after he has found the correct placement of your specific bite, allowing you to experience optimum performance in sport.
PPMs Not Available In Stores
Because of its scientific and custom-made design, the Pure Power Mouthguard is unlike the mouthguards you can purchase at a store. Some mouthguards are made of a material that is softened with heat so the teeth can be pressed into them. These are not typically very comfortable or durable mouthguards.
How the PPM Works
Amateur and professional athletes have discovered that their bite and jaw joint alignment are connected to the way their bodies behave. Dr. Quigless will find your proper bite using a TENS (Transcutaneous Electro-Neural Stimulation) unit. This device sends gentle electrical stimulation to the jaw muscles to relax them and allow your lower jaw to settle into its correct position. From there, a custom-designed PPM is created to hold your jaw in that relaxed and correct position. The result? You'll have better agility, range of motion, and balance.
