Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
If you watched Monday night football this week you may have heard about the revolutionary Pure Power Mouthguard that many New Orleans Saints players are sporting this season.
To put it simply, the Pure Power Mouthguard (PPM) by Makkar was designed using the principles of nueromuscular dentistry! Spinal misalignment, muscles and other body mechanics can have an effect on your bite. In turn, the position of your bite can effect how your neck aligns with your spine. The PPM is designed to correct the position of your bite during physical activities, placing the body in proper alignment and allowing you to utilize the energy that was previously spent clenching your teeth.
