Space Maintainers are appliances made of metal or plastic that are custom fit to your child's mouth. Space maintainers are used in pediatric dentistry if a baby tooth ( primary tooth) is lost prematurely due to decay or trauma. If left untreated, baby teeth may drift into the gaps that the lost tooth has left behind, causing crowding and lack of space for permanent teeth.
