Space Maintenance

Orthodontist & Pediatric Dentist in Pennington, NJ

After a dental extraction is performed, there is an empty space left in the child's smile from where the tooth was. This empty space can cause the other teeth to shift to compensate for that empty space. In order to prevent the other teeth from moving, we will place a prosthetic device in place of the missing tooth, keeping all the other teeth in their proper place.
