When Are Space Maintainers Needed?
Teeth often shift to where there is space, so premature loss of a primary molar can cause crowding or eruption problems for the permanent teeth.
There are several different types of space maintainer treatments depending on a patient’s needs. If a child has a space maintainer it is important for regular exam appointments so it can be monitored and then removed when the permanent tooth begins to erupt.
