When an athlete suits up, you can bet they put on protective gear before they wear their team uniform. Whether a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, everyone needs the proper protective equipment. Imagine if some of that protective gear could also improve your athletic performance. That’s exactly what happens with Under Armour Performance Mouthwear. Dr. Greg Friedman at Mod Squad Dental in San Diego, CA, is an authorized Under Armour Performance Mouthwear provider, who will not only protect your smile, he’ll improve your game.
What is Mouthwear?
Ordinarily, mouthwear (usually called a mouth guard) is made of a plastic material that is either pre-molded or can be custom made to the exact shape and position of your teeth. All mouth wear is designed to protect your lips, gums, teeth and mouth from injury that may occur while playing sports, both contact and non-contact.
The difference between ordinary mouth guards and Under Armour Performance Mouthwear is that Under Armour’s product is designed to improve athletic performance. Typically, when engaged in competitive sports, athletes clench their teeth, a natural occurrence stemming from our “fight or flight” instinct. The problem is that when you clench your teeth, you signal the body to release cortisol, the stress hormone that can zap your athletic performance.
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear is specially designed to prevent teeth clenching, relieve pressure on your temporomandibular joint and open your airway. The secret is the ArmourBite® Power Wedges™ that sit between your upper and lower molars to maintain an open airway and prevent clenching. Independent studies show that Under Armour Performance Mouthwear works.
