Athletic Mouthguards to Realign Your Body & Improve Athletic Performance

mouthguard1Whether you are competitive against others or aspiring to achieve your personal best, you know how important it is to use the right equipment to get the best performance. So what about a mouthpiece that reduces stress on your upper spine to promote BALANCE, strength, and good posture? What if this mouthpiece also helped keep your airways so your lungs get the oxygen they need when you are pushing your limits? And what if it kept your body from wasting vital resources clenching your teeth when you need all your energy?

Royal Oak Dental Group offers an option for athletes who are interested in seeing how the right mouthguard can improve their performance: Mouthguards. Getting an athletic mouthguard can help athletes who are into:



  • Weightlifting
  • Tennis
  • Soccer
  • Golfing
  • Football
  • Boxing
  • Biking
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • and more!

Athletic mouthguards can also be helpful for generally keeping fit with a mixture of activities.

Traditional Mouthguards Vs. Performance-Optimizing Mouthguards

Athletic mouthguards are different from other mouthguards, which have protection as their only goal. Unfitted mouthguards are barely adequate and can be bad for your teeth. Boil-and-bite mouthguards are not much better: they simply conform to your malocclusion and do nothing to improve the alignment of your jaw while you work out.

Although not technically neuromuscular treatment APPLIANCES, Athletic mouthguards use the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to promote performance-enhancing alignment of the jaw during workouts and games. You will feel the difference in performance from the moment you slip the mouthguards in until you reluctantly take it out. High-performing athletes in Major League Baseball, the NBA, the NFL, as well as olympic athletes have all found out the different a bite can make.

The Royal Oak team is proud to offer Athletic mouth guards, which are designed using the principles of neuromuscular dentistry. When worn during athletic activities, they reduce some of the negative impacts that malocclusion (bad bite) can have on your performance. We are your source for custom mouthguards.

One Athlete Reviews an Athletic Mouthguard:
“I Felt a Better Connection with My Body”

Transformation, Inc. Trainer Barry Seneri on the Mouthguard:

“As a professional in the health and fitness industry I see a lot of products that claim to give you an athletic edge. So when I was first introduced to the Athletic mouth guard I was a little skeptical, but the science behind it made a lot of sense. I was very grateful when Royal Oak told me that they would be willing to make me one to try out.

“I was first very impressed with amount of technology that goes into the process of getting an Athletic Mouth Guard fitted for me. Everyone was very professional and extremely thorough in the process.

“Upon receiving the mouthguard I really liked the look and feel of it in my mouth. It fit very comfortably and felt very solid. When I first started using it in my training I felt a better connection to my body especially in movements that required more core stabilization. I also noticed that as I progressed through my workout that I had better muscular endurance.

“In being a fitness professional and former athlete I know that any improvement in performance can make a major impact on game play. I would recommend any athlete at any level to invest in an Athletic mouth guard. It will give you that edge to propel you to that next level of performance.”

Dear Patient:
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we all collectively do our best to navigate the COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging times. Because the health and safety of our patients and community is paramount, it has been necessary to limit our patient care to urgent and emergency care over these last few months.

As we have closely followed recommendations from the North Carolina Dental Board, CDC, and other reputable health organizations, we recognize the importance of regional-specific guidance based on the most comprehensive, accurate, and current scientific literature and data available. While community guidelines may continue to evolve, we must continue to make our treatment decisions based on the best knowledge available. It is our job to help improve the health of our patients by approaching comprehensive dental treatment PROACTIVELY, not just reacting after the compromise has become irreversible in nature.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to safely reopen our doors to ALL PATIENTS beginning Monday, May 11th. This means routine dental care, such as cleanings and simple restorations, will resume. When you come to our office you will notice the following elevated measures and precautions that we believe are necessary to maintain until we emerge from this COVID-19 environment (and likely thereafter):  

  • Sanitation stations in the front desk/waiting area
  • Anti-microbial Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinses before the start of each appointment
  • Hi-Evacuation suction for hygiene appointments to minimize cavitron-related aerosols
  • Patient entrance doors will remain open to reduce contact 
  • Mandatory pre-screening questionnaire over the phone when appointments are confirmed and upon arrival to the office, in addition to temperature checks of ALL STAFF and PATIENTS
  • Patients will wait in their vehicles until their appointment begins
  • Limited access to patient waiting areas and operatories whenever possible (e.g. restricted to patients, parents of young children, translators, service animals, special needs assistance, etc.)
  • Enhanced social distancing measures throughout the office 

This is not the first crisis that we have endured as a state or as a nation, and we look forward to overcoming this event better, stronger and more resilient than ever before. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, and let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you.
