These pre-made options are available in our office for use by our patients. The Powrgard Univers is a single-layered mouthguard that offers high-quality protection of the teeth and jaws for athletes aged eight and up. It features a high, soft outer layer that molds to the teeth and gums to provide an exceptional level of comfort. Ideal for low- to medium-level contact sports, the Powrgard Univers is easily moldable for a comfortable fit and is suitable for athletes with crowded or misaligned teeth.
The POWRGARD STEALTH protects all your teeth and braces the lower jaw, protecting the TMJ from injury due to impact. It delivers shock absorption through its soft outer layer and impact distribution through its hard inner frame.
For those who want to focus on nasal breathing and correct tongue position, Arlington Smile Center loves the Powrgard athletic guards because they allow a spot for your tongue and help train nasal breathing during exercise.

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 from ArmourBite products sold at retail?
The custom Mouthwear product is fit by Dr. Roca, who is one of our authorized dental providers. She 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 Wedge™, 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 https://www.bitetech.com/research-and-science/bite-technology/overview/.

Hundreds of professional athletes are currently relying on the superior performance and protection benefits of UA Performance Mouthwear. But it isn’t just for the pros – UA Performance Mouthwear is for all athletes who want to excel in their sport or activity.
How do I choose the right custom Performance Mouthwear product?

These are designed for use in team contact sports, such as football, hockey and lacrosse.
The ArmourBite Mouthpiece, featuring ArmourBite technology, is appropriate for limited contact activities such as running, cycling, golf, yoga, baseball, swimming, tennis and weight training.
How do I get my Under Armour Performance Mouthwear products?
Once you’ve picked which model is right for you, getting your own Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ products is a quick and easy 3-step process. First, Dr. Roca takes your bite impressions. Next, the impressions are shipped to the lab where they custom-make your product. Third, your Mouthwear is shipped back to your dentist for a final fitting.
