Extractions & Space Maintainers
Keeping teeth in their place. And healthy.
Deep decay, infections, or simply age are all reasons we would recommend removing a tooth. Should we remove the tooth, or should it fall out on its own, we may suggest space maintainers. Space maintainers help teeth stay in place while the new teeth come in. That means they help control crowding and other problems which may help prevent braces.
As for adult teeth, our doctors believe they should stay where they are until they’re ready to come out on their own, generally speaking.
