Frequently Asked Questions
What is Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™?
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ is a completely new category of custom-fit performance mouthwear designed for any athlete looking to pursue their full athletic potential.
How does Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ differ from traditional mouthguards?
Mouthguards are designed to provide protection. The ArmourBite® Mouthguard does much more. Like the ArmourBite® Mouthpiece, it also delivers enhanced performance. That’s why ArmourBite® technology is recommended by dentists, professional trainers, strength coaches and wellness experts.
How is ArmourBite® custom mouthwear different than ArmourBite® products sold at retail?
The custom Mouthwear product is fit by one of our authorized dental providers. The dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends it directly to Bite Tech’s lab where the ArmourBite® Mouthwear is constructed and personalized, giving you a superior fit. The retail ArmourBite® product is self-fitting.
How does the ArmourBite® technology work?
ArmourBite® technology, visible in the products as the Power Wedges™ is a proprietary, scientific feature that prevents teeth from clenching and relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This in turn lowers the body’s production of the stress hormone – cortisol – and allows the body to unlock its full potential. The ArmourBite® mouthwear also helps open an athlete’s airway, which aids in lowering lactic acid. The full list of benefits includes increased strength, better endurance, faster reaction times and less athletic stress.
What research supports the performance claims?
There are several studies published in peer-reviewed journals, including Compendium, that support these claims. For more information, please visit http://www.bitetech.com/research-and-science/bite-technology/overview/
