About Mouth Guards
If you or your kid plays a high-impact sport (for example, boxing, football, soccer, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), then we highly recommend a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth, gums, and jaw. An oral appliance can also help relieve the pain caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and teeth grinding (bruxism). Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, customized mouth guards from Martin Dentistry will be molded and fit for you, making it more comfortable and effective. If you would like to reduce the chance of damage to your mouth, we encourage you to contact Martin Dentistry in Fishers, IN to learn more about custom mouth guards. Our cosmetic dentists, Drs. Matthew Martin, Stephanie Martin, and Lynn Marshall, look forward to meeting you.

The staff is genuinely friendly and I feel welcomed every time I walk though those doors. They made my first appointment smooth and I felt confident in my visit. Stephanie did a great job of walking me though her recommended procedures and even helped me prioritized them. The dentists are gentle but they get the job done!

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.
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 eight years, but the dentist will let the patient known when it is time for a new mouth guard.
