Neuromuscular dentistry will help the New Orleans Saints maintain a winning record again this year, according to player Tracy Porter. He wears a custom-made mouth guard that protects his lower jaw from being jarred out of its optimal position of rest.
Misaligned bites often cause headache, nausea, neck pain, and even indigestion in some players. So a specially made mouth guard that keeps the lower jaw in its proper position and protects it from being violently shifted during a game actually helps players feel better prior to the start of the game. Without any sort of chemical medication.
More and more sports teams are getting on the bandwagon of neuromuscular dentistry, realinzing that a perfectly aligned jaw helps with breathing and body strength and flexibility.
