Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta An article about the athletic benefit of the neuromuscularly based PPM mouth guard appeared in USA Today on November 17 th. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/2009-11-16-neuromuscular-mouthguard-cover_N.htm Many of the players in the NFL New Orleans Saints wear the PPM. Much was made of this on Monday Night Football by hosts John Gruden and Ron Jaworski when the Saints beat the New York Giants in week 6, 48-27. The benefits of aligning the bite in harmony with C1 and C2 of the neck vertebrae have profound effects on the body. The list of symptoms that can be attributed to imbalance of this connection and the amazing benefits of treatment using neuromuscular dentistry such as orthotics or improvement of athletic performance inspire me daily in my practice.
