Space Maintainers

Space Maintainers in South Brunswick

Space maintainers are orthodontic appliances designed to hold the space for a permanent tooth to erupt if the deciduous (baby) tooth is lost prematurely.  They may be fixed (permanently cemented) or removable (similar to an orthodontic retainer). Proper use of space maintainers can prevent a simple orthodontic problem from developing into a much more complex case.
