Space Maintainers

As a child slowly grows into a new set of teeth, some space and alignment issues could arise. One way to address such problem would be through the aid of space maintainers.

As reflected by its name, space maintainers are used to maintain and hold space for permanent teeth. A space is created when a child loses a baby tooth prematurely, before the permanent tooth is ready to grow in place. Since the primary tooth is lost too early, adult teeth can erupt into the space and there might not be sufficient space left to be occupied once more adult teeth are ready to erupt into the mouth. Depending on the space that needs to be held open, space maintainers come in different types that can be used in various parts of the mouth, each of which should be constructed differently as well.
