Space maintainers

If a milk tooth has been lost prematurely as the result of an accident or tooth decay, the gap that results must be kept open for the subsequent tooth. This can be done using a space maintainer. A fixed space maintainer is practical: it is cemented firmly in place and only has to be reset if it becomes loose.

Removable space maintainers should be worn for 14 hours every day – including Easter, birthdays and Christmas.
