About Mouth Guards@headingTag>
Custom-made, high quality mouth guards can be made at Martin Dentistry to help our Indianapolis patients with many common problems and concerns. First, custom mouth guards offer added protection for anyone who plays a contact sport. Second, a mouth guard can help patients relieve the pain caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) by removing some of the pressure from the jaw. Third, mouth guards can be used at night to treat sleep apnea or to stop teeth grinding and clenching (also called bruxism). Cosmetic and restorative dentists, Drs. Martin, Martin, and Marshall offer custom mouth guards that provide a better fit and more protection than over-the-counter mouth guards.

What to Expect@headingTag>
Once the dentist decides the type of mouth guard that will be created for the patient, a series of digital X-rays and dental impressions will be taken to send to the dental laboratory. At the dental lab, a custom mouth guard will be crafted from high quality materials and sent back to the dentist’s office. The dentist will check the mouth guard for proper fit and bite and make minor adjustments for the patient’s comfort.
Patients should carefully follow all care instructions the dentist gives them for their mouth guard, including cleaning and storage. The mouth guard should be brought to all future dental appointments so the dentist can check the wear and fit of the guard over time. Depending on how the mouth guard is used, it may last up to 8 years, but the dentist will let the patient known when it is time for a new mouth guard.
