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.
Achieving a Good Bite
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. At this time, we can provide a summary of the findings, as follows:
1. Vertical jump was significantly higher;
2. Peak power on the WAnT was significantly greater with the PPM™;
3. Significantly better performance was found for average mean power for WAnT + intervals.
The Bite Advantage
The Bite Advantage PPM™ has created a growing buzz in sporting and athletic circles and is being used by professional, collegiate and amateur athletes worldwide. Former players, who have recently endorsed their own Signature Series lines of the PPM™, can attest to its instant game-changing benefits. On the court, on the field, on the ice, on the golf course or in the gym – no matter what your sport or your level – the PPM™ is the essential piece of equipment for serious athletes who want the Bite Advantage.
The PPM™ product suite, which is available only through specially-trained neuromuscular dentists who are also PPM™-certified dentists, currently includes three custom-fit sports appliances that unleash “game-changing” enhancements in several areas vital to athletic performance.
Precision Crafted Power Guard
Available as an Upper protective guard (for contact sports), and Lower (for non-contact and training), the PPM™ delivers an immediate advantage to your body. No sports drinks, no supplements and no taking chances with your health or career – and the results are immediate.
This is not just another mouthguard or a boil and bite custom imitation. Have you ever had your dentist dedicate a significant amount of time to determine your best precise jaw location for a boil and bite or off-the shelf, one size fits all mouth appliance? Of course not! Backed by 40 years of science and neuromuscular research, each Bite Advantage PPM™ is custom-fit by expert dentists applying neuromuscular science principles. Additionally, the PPM™ Elite and PPM™ Signature Series fitting process employs advanced computer technology that tracks every movement of your jaw to the millimeter in a process that takes well over an hour. This ensures that your PPM™ precisely fits only one athlete – you, and gives you an advantage over your competition. The PPM™ is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny – just as is an expert personal trainer, strength coach, endurance coach and other expert.
At Bite Athletics, we understand that the key to realizing your athletic potential is You. Our emphasis is on unlocking your inherent potential through principles of neuromuscular science applied to and customized just for you. Each customized PPM™ is designed for the single most important athlete on the planet – You, and is the key to unlocking your natural athletic advantage.
