Any activity that presents an opportunity for injury, whether it is due to work or play, may suggest wearing a custom mouthguard that offers unique protection. While generic mouthguards are available at your local drugstore, these generally do not offer a comfortable fit or the needed protection you can obtain with a customized mouth guard fitted specifically for you by your dentist.
The Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ is fitted by your dentist in approximately twenty minutes.
A mouthguard that offers the maximum protection is critical particularly when you are trying to protect the teeth of a growing child or teen. The Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ is fitted by your dentist in approximately twenty minutes. In addition to the superb protection to teeth and the soft tissues of the mouth, serious athletes are looking at this product developed by Bite Tech, Inc. to improve athletic performance.
Wearing the “Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint. It also helps to prevent excessive production of performance sapping hormones. Athletes in both contact and non-contact sports are turning to this not only for protection, but for additional benefits received.
If you are skeptical about how a mouthguard can enhance physical performance, try to power through a workout without any type of mouth protection. You will likely find yourself clenching and biting down as you move through your exercise. This convenient new technology not only can protect your teeth, but keeps your jaw and teeth in a more relaxed position allowing a better flow of oxygen. In addition, cortisol production is reduced by allowing less stress on your body and better performance is the result. However, for many, the primary goal with any mouth guard is to protect the wearer from injury.
There are a variety of injuries one should anticipate, particularly when playing a contact sport.
- Getting one or more teeth knocked out.
- Soft tissue damage from biting the tongue, cheeks or lips.
- A well-fitting mouth guard can offer protection to the jaw and areas surrounding the mouth.
Your dentist can educate you on the importance of the protection derived from wearing a mouthguard. And now your dentist can also explain how the “UnderArmour Performance Mouthwear™ may enhance your performance at work or play.
