Space Maintainers

blue p

Pediatric space maintainers are custom-made dental devices designed to hold the space for a permanent tooth when a baby tooth is lost prematurely, either due to decay or injury. These tiny marvels prevent neighboring teeth from shifting into the vacant space, thus maintaining the proper alignment and preventing future orthodontic issues.

Crafted from safe and durable materials, space maintainers come in various types to suit different needs. Band-and-loop maintainers, for instance, consist of a metal band affixed to an adjacent tooth with a wire loop that holds the space open. On the other hand, removable space maintainers offer flexibility and ease of cleaning.

When it comes to your child’s oral health, timely intervention with space maintainers can make all the difference. By preserving proper tooth spacing, these devices mitigate the risk of crowding, misalignment and the need for more extensive orthodontic treatments down the road.
