About Mouth Guards

 

At Martin Dentistry, we craft custom-made, high-quality mouth guards to address various common concerns and provide solutions for our valued Indianapolis patients. These mouth guards serve multiple purposes:

They offer essential protection for individuals engaged in contact sports, ensuring added safety during physical activities.

Mouth guards can alleviate discomfort associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) by relieving pressure on the jaw.

They serve as effective tools for treating sleep apnea or managing teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) when worn at night.

Our team of cosmetic and restorative dentists, including Dr. Stephanie Martin, Dr. Matt Martin, Dr. Lynn Marshall, and Dr. Lindsey Garrison, specializes in custom mouth guards tailored to fit each patient's unique needs. These custom guards provide superior fit and enhanced protection compared to over-the-counter options.

Furthermore, we utilize advanced digital technology, such as the iTero 3D scanner, to ensure patient convenience and precision when creating mouthguard impressions. This digital approach enhances accuracy and efficiency, resulting in comfortable and effective mouth guards for our patients.

What to Expect

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.

Treatment Aftercare

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.
