As proud partner of the Essendon Football Club The Dental Solution is the official supplier of Performance Mouthguards for the players.
Custom designed and manufactured for each individual, professional athletes of all variety use Performance Mouthguards to ensure optimum results and a personalized product.
By naturally aligning the athlete’s jaw, the Performance Mouthguard enhances balance, range of motion, flexibility, endurance and oxygen flow during physical activity, allowing the user to maximize their performance.
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 relaxed and consequently, most efficient.
Unlike off-the-shelf and boil and bite mouthguard solutions, Performance Mouthguards are custom-fit by your expert dentist, applying well-established principles of neuromuscular science.
In order to ensure a perfect fit, the functionality of your jaw is analysed by your dentist through a series of quick tests designed to establish baseline measurements of strength, balance, range of motion and flexibility.
These are then repeated with the jaw in various positions to instantly determine the position that affords the greatest improvement, providing you the support you need.
Capturing your “Bite Signature”
Once your performance alignment position has been determined, your dentist can capture your unique bite signature, customized impressions of which will then be used to build a perfectly fitting mouthguard.
A custom-fitted mouthguard is:
- Allows you to speak clearly
- Provides maximum resistance against being dislodged
- Won’t restrict breathing
