The Drufomat Scan Pressure Machine is used to make removable dental appliances such as sports mouthguards, night guards, bleach trays and retainers. This state of the art machine allows Dr. Adams to create the most accurate and comfortable appliances on the market due to its unique bar code guides that program optimum heating and cooling times. The vertical forming design produces the most consistent results allowing for the best possible fit for patients. Dr. Adams is committed to protecting teeth when playing contact sports. It only takes a second to knock out a tooth but thousands of dollars to replace it with the best facsimile. One of the reasons athletes don't wear or chew on their mouthguards is because they are not comfortable which is why custom mouthguards are the best option. There is some research that claim mouthguards can reduce concussions because it stabilizes the jaw in order to reduce the force. Dr. Adams believes the added benefit a custom mouthguard brings gives the piece of mind to parents that everything was done to prevent a traumatic injury to the oral cavity. Having treated many children as well as adults, most almost always wish they had worn a custom mouthguard. Dr. Adams is excited to share this technology with the Carmel and surrounding Indianapolis areas.
