Space Maintainers

Losing a baby tooth too early can lead to alignment and spacing problems for permanent teeth. Dentists may suggest using space maintainers, devices that keep a space open for the proper growth of permanent teeth. Your child’s pediatric dentist will examine their mouth and teeth during a visit to determine if a space maintainer is needed. If necessary, a custom-made device will be created and placed in the area of the lost tooth. This simple solution can prevent future dental issues and promote the proper development of your child’s adult teeth.
