Space Maintainers

Primary, or baby, teeth serve as placeholders for permanent teeth. The premature loss of primary teeth may cause other teeth to drift out of position, which can make permanent teeth grow incorrectly. Our dentists use custom-made space maintainers to stop movement and guide permanent teeth into their ideal position. Space maintainers may be fixed or removable and are typically made of stainless steel and/or plastic. 

  Arch Expansion

Sometimes, children’s dental arches are too small to accommodate all of their permanent teeth. Interceptive orthodontic treatment can widen the dental arch to create space for permanent teeth to properly emerge. Arch expansion minimizes or eliminates the risk of crowding and results in a healthier, more attractive smile.
