Is there a difference between performance and optimum performance? Of course there is! A split-second faster, a step quicker, an inch higher, a bit more flexibility, a little stronger can make all the difference in your game. Athletes are always in pursuit of an edge, that natural advantage that will help them train and perform better than the rest. For thousands of athletes, including professionals competing at the highest level, that performance advantage is the PPM™.
Invented by neuromuscular dentist Dr. Anil Makkar, the Bite Advantage PPM™ is a sports appliance that is custom-designed and manufactured to each individual athlete/user. The PPM™ naturally aligns the athlete’s jaw, and in doing so, has been shown to enhance explosive power, balance, range of motion, flexibility, endurance and oxygen flow during training and competition, allowing the user to maximize their performance.
The process of properly aligning the jaw position is based on the principles of Neuro-muscular Dentistry, which indicate that a “good” bite is achieved when the muscles of the face, jaw and neck are allowed to be at their most efficient state, which is a restful state. What we have observed, and demonstrate time and again, is an immediate improvement in posture, range of motion, flexibility, balance, and strength. Our users have reported to us increased endurance and faster recovery. We believe that these results flow from a combination of factors, including a more efficiently functioning neuromusculature, and enhanced oxygen flow through an increased airway. The various and many testimonials by prominent athletes in several sports appear elsewhere on this website. They all relate immediate and substantial improvement in performance.
We have in hand results of a research study performed by a reputable US College with funding from us that compared the results of a traditionally-fitted custom mouthguard with a PPM™. We will be in a position to release the full research report shortly.
