Space Maintainers For Premature Tooth Loss

What Are Space Maintainers?

If a child or adult loses a tooth, they may benefit from a space maintainer to hold the place for the incoming or replacement tooth. Space maintainers are orthodontic appliances that help ensure that adult teeth come in where they should or the space is preserved for tooth replacement like an implant. They can be fixed or removable and they are custom-made for each patient.
