The Pure Power Mouthguard is based on the principles of Neuromuscular Dentistry, which has been practiced for the last 50 years. Neuromuscular Dentistry embodies well accepted scientific principles, and objectively evaluates the complex relationship between teeth, temporomandibular joints and the masticatory muscles, in order to achieve an occlusion (bite) that is based on the optimal relationship between the mandible and the skull.
The goal of the Neuromuscular Dentist is to relax the muscles that control the jaw position and establish a true physiological rest position, which allows for better alignment between the jaw and TMJ. Better alignment directly affects the posture of the head and cervical area, and since the head is considered to be the top block of the body, aligning the head and neck will allow for better alignment of the rest of the body. Better alignment means better efficiency and therefore allows for increased balance and flexibility. Studies have shown that the position of the jaw affects postural stability.
