Leave room for permanent teeth,
and avoid expensive problems down the road.
Dental space maintainers are devices used to leave enough space open for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost prematurely. While it might not seem like a big problem at first, not taking care of a gap can lead to expensive problems down the road.
Not every tooth that is lost too early requires a space maintainer. If one of the four upper front teeth is lost early, the space will stay open on its own until the permanent tooth comes in. If back baby molars are lost prematurely, our dentist will recommend that we place a space maintainer.
