The PPM™ Elite is a neuromuscular power guard custom fitted to an individual athlete. This custom mouth guard is only available only through our network of certified PPM™ dentists with training in Neuromuscular Dentistry. The PPM™ Dentist uses sophisticated technology to pinpoint your optimal jaw alignment with an accuracy within 1 millimeter.
PPM Elite Fitting Process
Step 1: Relax the Muscles
The first step to your PPM™ Elite fitting is to relax your jaw muscles with the help of a TENS unit that provides muscle and nerve stimulation. This enables the jaw to reach a point of physiologic rest, bypassing any nerve patterns that may misalign the jaw.
Step 2: Enhanced Jaw Alignment
After the muscles are relaxed and in an optimal state, the PPM™ neuromuscular dentist will use advanced technology tools to track and measure the jaw’s movements and determine, within a range of 0.7 millimeters, the precise 6 dimensional jaw position that optimizes the body’s potential.
Step 3: Capturing Your Unique Bite
In the optimal bite position, there is a space between the upper and lower teeth. This gap will vary for each individual. The PPM™ will be made to precisely fill that gap. This custom fit is your very own “power key” to performance enhancement. The neuromuscular dentist finds your optimal jaw alignment and creates a precise mold to capture “bite registration”. Your dentist will then take you through several exercises to confirm that he/she has captured your “jaw position fingerprint” – your unique power key used to create your Makkar PPM™ Elite Powerguard.
