Space Maintainers

Primary or baby teeth act as natural space maintainers for your child's adult teeth. Premature loss of baby teeth can result in a collapse of the space required for adult teeth to come in. This can lead to problems with crowding or even teeth getting completely blocked out.


If your child prematurely loses a primary tooth, we may recommend a space maintainer to help hold the adjacent teeth in place. A space maintainer is usually a small, metal appliance that is placed to maintain the space needed for the adult tooth to come in.

We will help you determine if a space maintainer is the best choice for your child.
