Space keeper


Space keepers are used for children who have lost teeth prematurely. These devices are either fixed or removable, and are always custom-made by dental professionals. By maintaining sufficient space in the mouth and preventing permanent teeth from shifting, space keepers help ensure there will be room for new teeth to come in properly. This helps patients avoid orthodontic treatments down the line.

Since space keepers are made specifically for the patient’s mouth, they cause minimal discomfort.
