The PPM™ 1.0 is custom-fit to an individual’s jaw alignment. By relaxing the jaw muscles, our fitting process identifies the enhanced alignment position of a jaw. This enhances flexibility, strength, balance and agility, thereby redefining the boundaries of athletic performance. The PPM™ 1.0 is available only through our network of certified PPM™ dentists with Neuromuscular Dentistry training. Certified dentists apply the principles of neuromuscular science to pinpoint the enhanced resting jaw position.
The Fitting Process
Over time, your nerves develop habits and beat in patterns that are “hard-wired” into the brain. In most cases, these patterns are sub-optimal.
Step 1: Relax the Muscles
The first step in the PPM™ 1.0 fitting process is to relax the jaw muscles. A TENS unit provides mild nerve and muscle stimulation. This allows the jaw to reach a state of physiologic rest – effectively de-programming the existing nerve patterns that may lead to an improper bite or misaligned jaw.
Step 2: Enhanced Jaw Alignment
Once the muscles are relaxed, the PPM™ Dentists applies neuromuscular science principles and measurements to identify the proper jaw position. The mouth guard is adjusted to create a custom fit for each individual. This provides instant improvements several aspects of athletic performance.
In addition to the cost of the PPM kit, a certified dentist must complete the customization process and will charge a fitting fee.
