Miami Beach Dental Institute Increases Performance of Professional Athletes

Professional Athletes Now Have a Legal Athletic Edge Courtesy of the Pure Power Mouthguard From the Miami Beach Dental Institute

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - By offering the Pure Power Mouthguard (PPM), nationally recognized Miami Beach Dental Institute continues to be at the forefront of innovative dentistry. Dr. Hamid Nassery is a dentist in Miami offering the cutting-edge tool to both professional and amateur athletes as an alternative, legal athletic performance enhancer.

In Miami, tooth whitening and porcelain veneers have been common requests in dental offices for decades. It is expected that PPM will soon be added to the list of popular dental procedures as the product becomes more mainstream in major sporting leagues across the country over the next five years.

In the heat of steroid scandals in several national athletic leagues, sports franchises are currently searching for innovative methods to legally, but effectively, increase players' athletic performance. PPM is a welcome, safe and approved alternative to give players the legal athletic edge they need over their competition. Currently, there are already over 100 nationally recognized professional athletes who are taking advantage of the benefits of PPM.

PPM was developed from over 40 years of verified research in neuromuscular dentistry (NMD). By objectively evaluating the complex relationship between temporomandibular joints, masticatory muscles and teeth, NMD can achieve a Neuromuscular Occlusion, which is based on the most favorable relationship between the mandible and the skull.

The outcome of this research is a custom fitted and designed mouth guard. By simply keeping the jaw in alignment, the orthopedic jaw-positioning appliance can produce extraordinary results. In addition to protecting the teeth and jaw, improved balance, a higher level of endurance, greater power, expanded range and increased strength are all direct results from wearing the innovative mouthpiece. Athletes in a wide range of impact sporting fields, including lacrosse, hockey, martial arts, boxing and football have experienced enhanced performance from PPM.

Dr. Nassery at the Miami Beach Dental Institute ( has outfitted a number of athletes with the Pure Power Mouthguard, including south Florida's own Olympic speed skater, Jennifer Rodriguez. "Due to improper physical alignment of the jaw, we have found that athletic players can become extremely limited in their performance. By using PPM we can effectively remove these limitations by aligning the jaw to the ideal location, providing athletes with the ability to perform more effectively by lifting more, hitting harder, running faster and jumping higher. Most importantly, the performance results are driven naturally without dangerous anabolic steroids," says Nassery.

Nationally endorsed by Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez, the cutting-edge mouth guard is creating a wave in the athletic community. Many professional and amateur athletes will not even consider playing without it.

"In Miami, dental implants used to be the most popular dental procedure. However, I would expect that PPM will rival in popularity as more and more people continue to see the huge performance benefits from this innovative mouthpiece," Nassery concluded.
