Conventional mouth guards serve the purpose of protecting the enamel of your teeth from nighttime clenching.
The Functional Activator is designed to have you position your tongue in its physiological position at the top of your palate.
Its double gutter permits micro movements created by the unique double-arched design to open up your Temporomandibular Joint.
The Functional Activator forces you to unconsciously place your tongue in its correct physiological position at the top of your palate.
Doing so instantly realigns your shoulders and pelvis, eliminating postural imbalances.
Several significant studies show that your jaw position and how your teeth fit together affect your balance and posture.
A study published in the PLOS One Journal noted consistent strength gains in subjects with an adjusted lower jaw.
Another study confirms the temporomandibular joint's influence on the hip joint's range of motion.
A new study shows that forward head posture may be associated with decreased cerebral blood flow and nervous system function.
The shape of the Functional Activator holds the tongue to the palate, thus facilitating breathing through the nose.
The Functional Activator is a mouthpiece designed with the help of dental surgeons to protect your teeth and restore optimal breathing mechanics.
The appliance places your tongue at the top of your palate to promote the natural nasal intake of oxygen and re-educate proper posture over time.
The Functional Activator also prevents the grinding of your teeth from chronic clenching and relaxes your jaw muscles simultaneously.
The Functional Activator is 100% biocompatible to avoid allergies! It is made from natural silica that offers good mechanical properties and provides the following:
- Flexibility in the mouth for greater comfort
- Resistance, for a longer useful life
- Elasticity for excellent shape retention memory
The Functional Activator is manufactured without bisphenol, phthalate (endocrine disrupters), and PVC. It is all-natural and good for you!
The main difference is that our Functional Activator is a double dental splint that fits snugly over the teeth of the upper and lower jaw, meaning it blocks your mouth airway, forcing you to breathe by your nose.
Furthermore, it provides a small ramp for the tongue to naturally rest on, maintaining its raised position against the palate. In that position, you are naturally forced to breathe through your nose.
After prolonged use, you will unconsciously place your tongue correctly and have a proper jaw position.
Hence, you will breathe through your nose even when you are not using the device. Forget about mouth-tapping! The Functional Activator is your permanent solution!
The position of your jaw is known to have an effect on your body's resting postural alignment.
A 2015 study from the New York University College of Dentistry compared different jaw positions while evaluating running gait.
They concluded that a properly aligned jaw resulted in a more symmetrical running pattern.
A more symmetrical running pattern is important as it will help reduce the wear on joints and the risk of injuries and improve running performance.
The main difference is that the Functional Activator is a double dental splint that fits snugly over the teeth of the upper and lower jaw, meaning it blocks your mouth airway, forcing you to breathe by your nose.
Also, The Functional Activator materials combine elasticity, tonicity, flexibility, and comfort, while the other mouthguards are known to be more rigid.
Finally, because of its shape, the Functional Activator provides a small ramp for the tongue to naturally rest on, maintaining its raised position against the palate. Through that, it can release imbalances in the jaw.
Other mouthguards do not address the tongue position or its effect on posture.
Don't take our word for it
MY WHOLE FAMILY HAS ONE Absolutely love this mouthguard! I train with it, I sleep with it, I put it in my mouth when stressed. Not only is my breathing much better, but my eczema has also miraculously disappeared! I have now gotten my whole family to wear it!
NO MORE MOUTH TAPING! I grew up as a mouth breather. 2 years ago I started taping my mouth at night. I sleep so much better. Now, with the functional activator, I trained my tongue so that my lips closed all the time without tape...
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOUTH APPLIANCE!I cannot remember the last time I slept this well! As soon as you put it in your mouth, it promotes nasal breathing. My Ouring ring was off the charts!
Personal trainer located in TO. Try training with this device in your mouth. Increased my VO2max. A bombshell!!! Really comfortable and easy to use.
