A space maintainer may be needed if baby teeth need to be extracted due to dental infection or because of other issues. These appliances prevent space loss from premature tooth loss and allow future adult teeth to come in. Space maintainers also preserve the space and position of the teeth, helping orthodontists to manage the bite until comprehensive orthodontic treatment can be initiated. If your child has had a baby tooth fall out early, call 425-284-9884 and arrange a space maintainer appointment in Redmond, Washington, with our dentist.
In some instances, Dr. Christine Wang provides same-day space maintainer fabrication and cementation. With Redmond Ridge Pediatric Dentistry, there is NO MORE waiting on impressions!
