Space Maintainers

If your child loses a baby tooth early through decay or injury, the child's other teeth could shift and begin to fill the vacant space. When your child's permanent teeth emerge, there's not enough room for them. The result is crooked or crowded teeth and difficulties with chewing or speaking.

To prevent that, your dentist inserts a space maintainer to hold the spot left by the lost tooth until the permanent tooth emerges. The space maintainer might be a band or a temporary crown attached to one side of the vacant space. Later, as the permanent tooth emerges, your dentist removes the device. And presto! Your child is ready for a lifetime of smiles.

Reviews from real patients:

Dr. Runco and staff are extremely nice and very understanding / patient. They do exceptional work. This place makes going to the dentist easier especially if you have had a previous experience with a dentist that has caused a fear of going to the dentist. I was so nervous before I had my work done but they made me feel extremely comfortable and safe.
