Dental Space Maintainers for Children

Prevent crooked teeth with this budget-friendly solution.

Sometimes children lose their primary (baby) teeth before they have a chance to fall out naturally. When this happens, the other teeth may shift out of place and become misaligned. Dental space maintainers do just that – they maintain the space between the teeth surrounding the gap so they don’t move.

Space maintainers are custom-made to fit your child’s mouth perfectly. They are comfortable and affordable and may prevent the need for orthodontic treatment in the future. Once your child’s adult tooth starts to come in, we can remove the space maintainer safely.

How do we do it?

  • We take a scan of your child’s mouth to capture the perfect fit
  • We send the scan off to a lab, and they create the space maintainer
  • We have your child try on their new appliance to make sure it fits
  • We monitor your child’s tooth development as they grow
  • We remove the space maintainer when the child’s adult tooth begins to come in

Benefits of Dental Space Maintainers

Save Space

Space maintainers maintain the space between two or more baby teeth which allows permanent teeth to come in correctly.

Not Permanent

Your child will only need the space maintainer until the adult tooth begins to come in.
