Olympic Athlete Michael Redd Discovers Improved Performance with Pure Power Edge


‘The Edge,’ the technological wonder that is making big news by enabling star athletes to perform at unprecedented levels, is now being offered by Dr. Mike Bixby, a renowned neuromuscular dentist from Little Silver, New Jersey, who is also licensed in the state of New York.

The inventor of The Edge is Dr. Anil Makkar. Both Dr. Makkar and Dr. Bixby are alumni of the esteemed Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dentistry.

The revolutionary appliance, which was invented by a renowned Canadian dentist, is helping Milwaukee Bucks star shooting guard, Michael Redd, take his game to new heights. By holding his jaw in a position that allows his jaw and neck muscles to completely relax; The Edge is literally giving Redd an edge in strength, balance and flexibility.

Redd is currently training for the Beijing Olympics. To win the gold medal, the U.S. will be relying in part on Redd’s ability to shoot the basketball and score points. Redd feels The Edge has helped take his shooting game to a new level. “More explosion, more power, more range of motion in the shot. I can definitely feel a difference.”

“I’ve been using the mouth guard for about a month and a half now, and I noticed a big difference instantaneously,” says Redd. “It was incredible, and blew my mind away. The results speak for themselves.”

“The funny thing is that I tried to prove it [The Edge] wrong. However, I can’t find anything wrong with it… I can’t.”

Dr. Bixby, a specially trained neuromuscular dentist, says that years of research went into designing the mouth guard. “It begins with looking at how the body functions as a whole,” he says. “Over 90% of the population has an overbite, and one of the negative effects of an overbite is that it causes muscle tension. When the neck and jaw muscles are tense, the body can’t perform at its peak. Strength is lost and balance is diminished. So on the most basic level, the Edge allows the body to perform at its absolute peak, in a purely natural way.”

To achieve this kind of efficiency, athletes who are interested in using The Edge must be fitted by specially trained and licensed dentists, such as Dr. Bixby. Bixby says that the key to getting the perfect fit is the use of state-of-the-art equipment which monitors the condition of the jaw muscles so that a dentist can determine where the optimal bite position is.

“Once we know where the optimal bite position is, we can then fit the mouth guard,” he says. “So whenever they put the device in their mouth, it will hold their jaw in the perfect position, freeing up the rest of the body to perform at its best.”

As for Michael Redd’s take on The Edge and the upcoming Olympics: “Anything to help us win a gold medal, and to help me perform at the highest level I can perform at. I’ll definitely be using it.”

For Redd, playing in the Olympics is the pinnacle of his basketball career. “It’s the greatest achievement of any athlete. It’s a humbling honor to represent your country. To win the gold medal would probably be the best achievement of my career.”

“There are a lot of dentists throughout North America and around the world who are fitting athletes with The Edge,” says Bixby. “That number is growing at an exponential rate.”

The Edge is indeed taking off. It is part of a comprehensive mouth guard system, which includes the Pure Power Mouthguard, or PPM. The PPM protects the upper teeth, while The Edge, worn on the lower jaw, holds the jaw in optimal position. Currently, there are over 200 dentists in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Singapore, who offer the appliance to professional and amateur athletes. The list of world class athletes using The Edge is also growing.

There are currently over 200 professional athletes using The Edge, from MLB, the NBA, NFL, NHL, and UFC. Other star athletes who are raving about it include Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox, and Josh Brown of the St. Louis Rams. This doesn’t include the list of over 2000 collegiate and amateur athletes who are embracing The Edge phenomenon.

Dr. Bixby believes that The Edge will soon be a hit with athletes of all levels of ability.

“I would encourage anyone who is interested in improving their athletic ability to talk to us about taking a short and simple test for The Edge. We all have different goals when it comes to sports, but there isn’t anyone who wouldn’t like to have an overall increase in strength, balance, and range of motion. The Edge is a great, natural way to achieve these things.”
