If your child has lost a tooth that wasn’t ready to come out, a space maintainer will ensure their adult tooth comes in where it should. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer space maintainers and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What are Space Maintainers?
Space maintainers are appliances that are used when children lose baby teeth prematurely and their permanent teeth aren’t quite ready to come in yet. While this may not seem like a problem at the time, this condition often causes permanent teeth to grow in misaligned, crowded, or malformed. Space maintainers help your child’s bite develop properly and hopefully avoid the need for braces later on.
