Space Maintainer Applications

Explainer Video

Space maintainers are crucial dental devices used primarily in pediatric dentistry to preserve space for permanent teeth after the premature loss of a baby tooth. When a child loses a tooth too early due to decay or injury, there’s a risk that the surrounding teeth may shift into the space, potentially causing overcrowding or misalignment issues. Space maintainers are designed to prevent this, ensuring the proper development and alignment of permanent teeth. They can be fixed or removable and are custom-made to fit comfortably in a child’s mouth.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

A space maintainer is an appliance placed in the mouth to prevent tooth movement and maintain space in the dental arch after a premature tooth loss.

Space maintainers are designed to be comfortable and well-tolerated by most children. However, it may take some time for a child to adjust to having the appliance in their mouth.

A space maintainer is usually required until the permanent tooth erupts into the arch and replaces the lost baby tooth. This can take several years in some cases.

Space maintainers are rarely used by adults. Adults have less need to preserve space since their teeth have fully erupted. Also, adult teeth move less readily than children’s teeth.

Proper oral hygiene is important to keep the space maintainer clean. Brush normally around the appliance. Use floss threaders to clean under the wires, and avoid sticky, chewy, or hard foods that could dislodge it.

Contact your child’s dentist right away if the space maintainer becomes loose, damaged, or broken. If it is only slightly loose, it can often be recreated into place.
