Custom Mouthguard Southside Indianapolis, IN

Mouthguards An Overview

Mouthguards can be recommended for a range of uses and generally serve as a protection from harm caused by trauma or the effects of a bite problem. Custom made to fit your unique bite, a mouthguard can be fitted by Dr. Carole or Dr. Robin Thoman at Paradox Dental in Indianapolis.

Mouthguards for Sports

If you or your child participate in contact sports or any activity that could result in trauma to the head or mouth, a custom-made sports mouthguard is highly recommended. Providing maximum protection for the teeth, gums and oral appliances, a custom sports mouthguard can offer key benefits when compared to over the counter options:

  • Customized fit for superior protection
  • Fits snugly over the teeth and allows the wearer to speak and drink fluids when in place
  • Minimizes the need for clenching the jaw to keep in place, saving energy for on-field performance

A sports mouthguard protects your dental health and the investment you have made in the appearance of your smile.

Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding

A mouthguard or nightguard may be recommended to address teeth grinding and other TMJ related symptoms. Serving as a protective device against tooth damage, a mouthguard to treat teeth grinding will also be designed to help the jaw relax in a natural position to reduce muscle tension in the jaw joint. Patients can wear their mouthguard at night and when feeling stressed to mitigate jaw clenching and teeth grinding.

Mouthguards What to Expect

A mouthguard is custom-made for you using dental impressions taken in our Indianapolis IN dentist office. These are sent to a lab where the mouthguard is fabricated. Our office will notify you once the appliance is ready to be picked up.

A custom sports mouthguard is ready to wear and should be considered a part of your uniform to protect your teeth and gums in the event of an accident.

If the mouthguard is for the prevention of teeth grinding, Dr. Carole or Dr. Robin will provide personalized instructions for use and follow up with you as needed.

Bring your mouthguard with you to routine dental visits so that we can examine it for damage and ensure the fit is stable.
