In children who lost their primary teeth due to various reasons, the tooth that will come from under the lost tooth may not be able to fully protect its place in the mouth. And since the teeth on the side may tip over towards the area where the lost primary tooth is, it causes the tooth from below to not find enough space for it to erupt. Therefore, fixed space maintainer treatment is applied to prevent the teeth from tipping over there.
Dental space maintainers are prepared in special sizes to suit children's teeth and jaws. Applications and uses are quite simple. Tooth maintainers should be used until the permanent tooth, which will replace the lost primary tooth, erupts into the mouth.
