Space Maintainers are a great children's dental solution for ensuring proper teeth alignment and we offer several styles at Madison Dental and Alexis Dental.
Space maintainers hold open the gap where children's permanent teeth will come in, and avoids shifting of the neighboring teeth. Space maintainers may be necessary when a primary tooth (baby tooth) has been lost prematurely.
Space maintainers can be fixed or removable, and they can be unilateral (fixed to one side of the mouth) or bilateral (fixed to both sides of the mouth). We recommend fixed space maintainers for a family with younger children.
