The new mouth guards, derived from neuromuscular dentistry, demonstrate how connected your bite is to the rest of your body. An estimated 90% of people have some problem with their bite - the way in which the teeth meet - or the lower jaw. Improper alignment of the lower jaw causes clenching, headaches, and earaches, symptoms commonly associated with TMJ . A neuromuscular orthotic was originally designed and used for treating TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome).

Patients with jaw problems who were being treated with a neuromuscular orthotic were finding they had increased upper-body strength and improved balance. The founder of Pure Power Management, Dr Anil Makkar, was seeing incredible results in many of his patients who were being treated for jaw conditions.

From these findings, the PPM was developed. The PPM combines the properties of a mouth guard to absorb the impact from a traumatic hit or blow, with advanced neuromuscular dentistry for the most optimal position of the lower jaw. By helping to properly align and relax muscles in the face, the PPM mouth guard improves muscle recruitment and vertebrae alignment. The result: improved strength and balance. The complete history and findings of the PPM and PPE can be found at

There are athletes in all arenas of professional sports using the Pure Power Mouth guard, including Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox. The mouth guard is ideal for a strong defense in sports where tooth protection and concussion resistance is important. For sports with lower impact levels, the Pure Power Edge provides comfortable protection and ideal jaw alignment.

Dr. Michael Bixby uses specialized computer technology to ‘pinpoint’ and capture your ideal bite position. The whole process takes about 90 minutes to complete. The impressions and “tested ideal bite” are sent to the lab to make the PPM / Edge. It takes about two weeks to make. The finished product can be mailed directly to you, or it can be picked up at our office. You are always welcome to come back to us for any adjustments, which are rarely needed.
