Kids Space Maintainers in Las Vegas, NV
Make room for adult teeth at Just for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics.
Dental Space Maintainers for Kids
Prevent tooth misalignment with this affordable solution.
Sometimes children lose their primary (baby) teeth before they have a chance to fall out naturally. When this happens, the other teeth may shift out of place and become misaligned. Dental space maintainers do just that – they maintain the space between the teeth surrounding the gap so they don’t move.
Space maintainers are custom-made to fit your child’s mouth perfectly. They are comfortable and affordable and may prevent the need for orthodontic treatment in the future. Once your child’s adult tooth starts to come in, we can remove the space maintainer safely.
How do we do it?
Benefits of Dental Space Maintainers
Space maintainers maintain the space between two or more baby teeth which allows permanent teeth to come in correctly.
Your child will only need the space maintainer until the adult tooth begins to come in.
Because space maintainers are custom-made, there is no discomfort, and your child should get used to them quickly.
