What are types of space maintainers?
There are two types of space maintainers, namely:
Removable- these are made of acrylic material, and they look like artificial teeth.
Fixed- depending on the location of the fallen tooth, your child’s pediatric dentist might suggest this space maintainer, which will remain fixed in its position.
Who are the candidates for space maintainers?
Children who have lost their primary teeth early are the candidates for space maintainers. If your child has lost their primary teeth prematurely for any reason, contact our experienced pediatric dentist Dr. Castillo, and he will tell you what to do next.
