  • What is a space maintainer?

    A space maintainer is a dental appliance used to hold space for a permanent tooth when a baby tooth is lost prematurely. This device prevents neighboring teeth from shifting into the empty space, ensuring there is enough room for the permanent tooth to grow in properly. Space maintainers are crucial for guiding proper tooth alignment and preventing future orthodontic issues.
