    Canton Dentists Bring Dentistry to a Whole New Playing Field

    The latest in sports gear! The Pure Power Mouthguard (PPM), a high tech mouthpiece, is custom created for each athlete to place the jaw in its correctly aligned position so that the head neck and jaw muscles are completely relaxed.

    There is only one thing on an athlete’s mind: winning.

    Athletes train every day to try and obtain various techniques to help their game so they can capture glory. Now, there is a scientifically proven tool that pros like Terrell Owens and Olympic champion Michael Redd are using to get an edge. The Pure Power Mouthguard (PPM), a high tech mouthpiece, is custom created for each athlete to place the jaw in its correctly aligned position so that the head neck and jaw muscles are completely relaxed.

    This alignment delivers balance, power, flexibility and increased range of motion because when muscles are relaxed, stored energy that was previously compensating to hold the body’s posture together, is released. The results are stunning. Professional trainers say that it takes an average of 60 days for an athlete to become flexible. The PPM does as soon as it’s placed in the mouth. Most people think that a professional athlete has reached the peak of athletic ability that is humanly possible, but the PPM increases even a pro’s capabilities by 30% to 100%. If the guard can significantly improve a training program valued at millions of dollars, imagine the power that the PPM can deliver to an average person. –

    "It’s not the actual mouth guard that makes you stronger and more flexible, it’s the body equilibrium that the mouth guard achieves, which allows you to reach your full potential" states Dr. Konstantin Ronkin, a PPM dentist and owner of Dream Smile Dental in Canton, MA.

    The PPM also prevents injury more than the common mouth guard that can be purchased at a sporting goods store. "The mandible, or jaw bone is linked to the skull. If the jaw bone is in its optimal and safe position, concussions are less likely to occur" confirms Dr. Evetta Shwartzman, who is also a PPM dentist and owner of Dream Smile Dental in Canton.

    This concept, known as neuromuscular dentistry, has been used by Ronkin and Shwartzman since 2001 to treat symptoms of TMJ, including headaches, neck and back pain, grinding, facial pain and ringing in the ears. Now that neuromuscular dentistry has made its way to the sports world, they’re happy to offer Canton Citizens a new facet of high tech dentistry.

    "Research shows that ninety percent of the population suffers from an unbalanced bite and suffer from symptoms of TMJ. If you feel you belong to that category, the best thing to do is consult a neuromuscular dentist" recommends Ronkin.

    Dental insurances don’t generally cover, but depending on the plan, medical insurances might pay for some procedures. Regardless of insurance, patients who proceed with treatment say the relief from chronic head aches and pain, or the competitive edge of the PPM is priceless.
