We all know that there can’t be infancy without abrasions and bruises…
But sometimes children experience teeth injuries that cause premature tooth loss, long before it is time for the permanent to erupt.
This may cause orthodontic problems in the future because the adjacent teeth tend to move into the remaining gap. This prevents the permanent tooth from erupting in the right position and in the right direction. The situation may result in crooked teeth and the balance of denture may be affected.
To avoid this development, we use a space maintainer appliance, which prevents the adjacent teeth from moving and maintains the gap. So the permanent tooth will have the required space to erupt normally.
The appliance is custom made for your child, based on the morphology of his or her mouth. It is easily worn, small, and usually the children get used to it easily after a few days.
