Please Read Our Safety Precautions
|•||Fixed. A fixed space maintainer is the most common type. They can be held in place in some different ways, including a band-and-loop, which uses a wire to hold the device in place on an adjacent tooth, or a distal shoe appliance, which is inserted under the gums. This type of space maintainer is often used when a baby tooth is lost in place of the first permanent molar. There is no way to anchor other types of space maintainers because no other molars have come in, so the gums anchor it.
|•||Removable. A removable space maintainer is similar to a retainer. Used for teeth lost in visible areas, it contains a fake tooth and is often recommended for children who are a little older.
|•||Lingual arch. A lingual arch space maintainer is one that is used when the back teeth are missing from both sides of the lower jaw. This type of space maintainer uses wire that is attached to bands that are used as anchors. The wire runs along the backside of the bottom teeth, so it is not visible when your child smiles.|
