When you’re out on the field, the basketball court, the baseball diamond, or the soccer field, you want to make sure you’re playing your best. But you also want to make sure you’re smile is protected. Is it possible to do both? The good news is: yes, it is! With a custom-made Under Armour mouthguard from Dr. Friedman, you can protect your teeth and improve your strength, speed, and balance at the same time.
How is that possible?
Because of the unique way Under Armour’s mouthguards work. But first you have to understand how your body reacts to physical exertion.
It’s natural, when you’re participating in your favorite sport, to clench your jaw. However, this simple, natural response triggers the release of a hormone called cortisol, which can make you feel fatigued and distracted. Under Armour mouthguards relieve tension in the jaw by preventing the jaw from clenching. This also prevents the body from releasing cortisol, automatically improving energy levels, stamina, and concentration—in other words, overall performance.
Are you an athlete in the Scripps Ranch area? Dr. Friedman can have a custom-made Under Armour mouthguard ready for you in just two appointments. During the first appointment, our team at Mod Squad Dental will take an impression of your teeth, which only takes about 20 minutes. When you’re done, we’ll send your impression to the Under Armour lab. Your finish appliance will be ready for you to try on in about 10 days.
