Dental Power Splint

Energy-Booster and Vital Key for the success of Athletes

In approximately 90% of the population, the lower jaw is not in its optimal, most comfortable position; this causes pain and muscle tension in the jaw and the area that surrounds the jaw. An orthopedic jaw appliance has been designed based on the science of neuromuscular dentistry and is called the Dental Power Splint.

Athletes are especially benefiting from the DPS because by holding the jaw in its optimal position, the DPS results in improved vertebrae alignment, better balance, increased upper body strength, and fewer injuries.This appliance is custom designed and fitted for each athlete based on his or her own individual muscle physiology. Both professionals and amateurs, or anyone that is serious about their sports performance can benefit from the strength and endurance improvement that the appliance provides.

There are two versions of Dental Power Splint. Dentist Charles Smith creates an appliance designed for non-impact sports like football (soccer), golf, baseball, and weight lifting that is worn on the lower jaw. This device is also used while training for impact sports, because it is less cumbersome than the upper appliance DPS.

The second type of appliance, worn on the upper Jaw, is designed for impact sports like hockey, American football, handball, and the martial arts, and protects against impact trauma to the teeth and concussion injuries.While protecting your teeth and jaw, it is also designed to hold your jaw in its most relaxed and comfortable position, allowing your upper torso muscles to work at their maximum potential resulting in increases in range of motion, flexibility, and strength.

What is the DPS concept?

The Dental Power Splint helps to properly align the facial muscles, improving muscle recruitment and vertebrae alignment. If your jaw and neck muscles are not strained from a poor jaw position, your upper cervical muscles are free to work much more efficiently and to their fullest potential. Simply put, the DPS results in improved strength, flexibility, and balance and is helping athletes maximize their performance all over the world.
