Patterson Dental, based in St. Paul, Minn., announced that it has become the exclusive distributor of Under Armour Performance Mouthwear. The mouthwear was developed by Bite Tech Inc. and promises to not only protect the jaw from hits but to reduce stress to improve athletic performance. Bite Tech, a Minneapolis-based company, has spent more than 15 years conducting research and science on developing mouthwear products that improve athletic performance.
In a statement, Patterson Dental said ArmourBite Technology in UA Performance Mouthwear prevents teeth from clenching, relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint, and helps prevent the excessive production of performance-sapping hormones.
“We're thrilled to bring such a compelling product and powerful brand name, Under Armour, into the dental practice,” said Scott Anderson, president of Patterson Dental.
A premium alloy version of the mouthpiece will be added to the UA Performance Mouthwear product line-up in fall 2009.
