To begin, we will custom-fit a space maintainer to your child’s teeth. The maintainer is meant to wrap around the two outermost teeth. There is a space in between the maintainer that prevents the teeth around it from shifting. These maintainers can be removable, allowing your child to take them out as needed to brush and eat. Most often, the maintainer is affixed permanently to the child’s teeth and can be removed once it has served its purpose.
If you think your child might need a space maintainer and want to learn more about the procedure, call us today so that we can get them in for a consultation. We have affordable discount plans, low wait times and office amenities that include a snack and beverage bar for your family’s convenience.
