Sometimes children need to get space maintainers, so their permanent teeth come in straight and in the right space. Space maintainers help make sure this happens.

Baby teeth are important for several reasons, one of which is that they act as place holders for permanent teeth. If they are not there to hold the space, the permanent tooth may not come into its right place. Another tooth may have moved into it.

Sometimes a baby tooth is not there, is lost early, or needs to be extracted due to a toothache or infection. If this happens, something else must be done to hold the permanent tooth’s space to erupt. To do this, our dentist will have a space maintainer made, especially for your child.

Space maintainers can either be “fixed” or “removable.” A fixed space maintainer is cemented into your child’s mouth and will stay in place until the permanent tooth comes in. A removable space maintainer looks much like a dental retainer. It can be removed from the mouth when necessary.

If you want to be sure your child has the best dental care, it is important to bring them to our dental practice, where we specialize in children’s dental care. Our dentists will make sure your child’s teeth are healthy and performing their necessary functions.
