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...

How Does It Work?

The Functional Activator not only encourages proper tongue positioning but also gently promotes nasal breathing.

Tongue Posture

The main focus of the Functional Activator is to correct and encourage proper tongue posture. It aims to position the tongue at the top of the palate, which can improve breathing and overall oral health. A night guard, on the other hand, does not address tongue posture and focuses solely on protecting teeth from grinding.

Unlike traditional night guards, the Functional Activator is not custom-fitted. It comes in a standard design, which means it may not have the same personalized fit as a custom night guard.

Despite not being custom-fitted, the soft mouthguard has shown to be effective in promoting proper tongue posture and nasal breathing, as supported by the study comparing hard and soft occlusal splint therapy.

This study found that soft mouthguards exhibited superior results, especially when compared to hard occlusal splints, in managing TMJ symptoms.

Shape

The shape of the Functional Activator includes a small ramp that encourages the tongue to maintain a high position on the palate, which can have a positive impact on overall oral and postural health. This can also help improve breathing and reduce snoring.

Function

The Functional Activator's goal is to encourage a self-active approach to improving dental and postural health, one in which the user is in charge of exerting the necessary energy and effort to keep the jaw and tongue in the right positions. It does this by encouraging adequate nasal ventilation, swallowing, chewing, and phonation.

Elasticity

The Functional Activator is a double gutter in which the teeth are placed. The deepest gutter holds the teeth of the upper jaw (maxillary). The teeth of the lower jaw (mandible) are placed in the second gutter facing each other. The small ramps encourage proper oral function and posture.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Functional Activator differs from a traditional night guard in several ways:

Purpose: Night guards are primarily designed to protect teeth from grinding and clenching during sleep. They are typically prescribed for patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. On the other hand, the Functional Activator is specifically designed to promote proper tongue posture and nasal breathing while also addressing TMJ-related issues.

Tongue Posture: The main focus of the Functional Activator is to correct and encourage proper tongue posture. It aims to position the tongue at the top of the palate, which can improve breathing and overall oral health. A night guard, on the other hand, does not address tongue posture and focuses solely on protecting teeth from grinding.

Breathing and Posture: The Functional Activator addresses nasal breathing and head/neck posture as part of its approach to improve overall well-being. It encourages optimal nasal ventilation, which can lead to better breathing and reduced snoring. Additionally, it helps re-educate proper posture over time, promoting improved alignment and stability. Night guards do not specifically address these aspects of health.

Custom Fitting: Unlike traditional night guards, the Functional Activator is not custom-fitted. It comes in a standard design, which means it may not have the same personalized fit as a custom night guard. Despite not being custom-fitted, the soft mouthguard has shown to be effective in promoting proper tongue posture and nasal breathing, as supported by the study comparing hard and soft occlusal splint therapy. The study found that soft mouthguard  exhibited superior results, especially when compared to hard occlusal splints, in managing TMJ symptoms.

Why does it cost more than other mouthguards?

The Functional Activator is intended to enhance your respiratory function and overall well-being, making it an investment in your own self. Moreover, it is built to be durable, ensuring many years of use. Ultimately, the cost of the Functional Activator is outweighed by the potential health benefits it offers.

The Functional Activator is a great tool to improve posture, mobility, and overall fitness. By keeping the tongue in the correct position and focusing on nose breathing, the Functional Activator can help to strengthen the core muscles and develop balance, agility, and stability. This can reduce back pain, improve posture, and increase flexibility. In addition, it can help to improve balance, coordination, and power, allowing for easier breathing and less tension in the jaw and neck. With the combination of nose breathing and the Functional Activator, you can achieve greater overall well-being and improved posture in a shorter amount of time.

The Functional Activator's suitability relies on your specific needs and circumstances. It's often utilized to address airway and posture-related problems, including blocked airways. It's crucial to consider factors such as age, overall health, and pre-existing conditions before using the Functional Activator.
