At Happy Teeth Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, we provide state-of-the-art pediatric dental care for your child’s teeth at every stage of growth and development. Our 95628 kid’s dentist can provide a customized space maintainer in case your child loses a baby tooth too early and before it’s ready to naturally fall out on its own. By placing a space maintainer, we can help your child’s permanent tooth to emerge into proper alignment.
Your child’s primary teeth play a number of important roles. First of all, they help children bite into and chew foods as well as help them learn to speak. Also, the primary teeth serve as important placeholders for a child’s new set of permanent teeth. When a baby tooth is lost prematurely, the surrounding teeth can shift over time to impact the eruption and alignment of the permanent teeth. By placing a space maintainer, we can preserve the area that the missing baby tooth once occupied until the next tooth comes into place. Our 95628 kid’s dentist custom designs your child’s space maintainer to achieve the most precise, comfortable fit. The small appliance can either be fixed or removable, depending on your child’s individual needs. Our friendly professional staff will help your child adjust to wearing the space maintainer and will take the time to teach both you and your child how to properly utilize and care for the appliance.
Whenever you bring your child in for a visit with our 95628 kid’s dentist, you can expect the gentle, personalized care your child deserves. At Happy Teeth Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics we make it easy and stress-free for your child to attain a lifetime of excellent oral health.
