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.

"Dr. Stephanie and her assistant, Celeste, worked on my fillings today. Both were very concerned about my comfort (to the point that I fell asleep in the chair!). The procedure went well and without pain. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful in explaining what I did not understand in the billing and insurance process. The office is very inviting. Thank you to Dr. Steph and her staff for a good dental experience."- C.M. / Yelp / Oct 23, 2019
"My name is Ryan and I have been a patient for over 10yrs plus. It all started with a pain in one of my wisdom teeth. Since I was new to the area at the time having lived in another state, I needed a dentist. Checking with a co-worker I asked her where she went and Martin Dentistry is what she told me. They have a personal experience unlike no other. They treat you like a member of their family instead of just a regular customer. Now I don't like going to the Dentist as much as the next person but when my appointment for cleanings is coming up, I actually look forward to visiting them."- Q. / Google / Sep 19, 2019
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.
