It keeps the best spaces free
Sometimes we have to remove a milk molar tooth. However, since molars among milk teeth mainly have an important function as place holders for permanent teeth later on, a spacer is used. This keeps the best and most natural intended space free for the regrowing tooth.
If your child prematurely loses one or several posterior teeth due to caries or an accident, the development and function of the entire chewing system can be disrupted. Even if the loss of teeth is not restricted to milk teeth, we still insert spacers into the dentition. Because we only produce a final denture to close gaps and only insert it when your child’s facial growth is complete.
Whether we recommend a fixed or removable denture depends on the individual findings, which we discuss with other dental specialists in advance.
