Space Maintainers at Kidz Smile: Nurturing Dental Health After Accidents

Accidents are an inevitable part of childhood, often resulting in various injuries from scraped knees to chipped teeth. At Kidz Smile, we understand that when a child experiences a fall leading to the loss of a tooth, immediate attention and intervention are crucial.

  • Purpose of Space Maintainers: In such instances, Kidz Smile employs specialized dental appliances known as space maintainers. These devices serve a crucial role in preserving the proper alignment of teeth, especially when a primary tooth is lost prematurely. The purpose is to prevent adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap created by the missing tooth, ensuring the natural spacing necessary for the eruption of permanent teeth.
  • Customized Solutions: Our team of pediatric dental experts at Kidz Smile tailors each space maintainer to the unique needs of the child, considering factors such as age, dental development, and the specific tooth affected. These devices come in various forms, including fixed and removable options, providing flexibility in addressing diverse dental scenarios.
  • Timely Intervention for Long-Term Benefits: Timely intervention with space maintainers helps avoid potential complications in the future. Without proper care, the loss of a primary tooth can lead to issues such as crowding, misalignment, and difficulties in the eruption of permanent teeth. The use of space maintainers plays a vital role in mitigating these concerns, contributing to the child’s overall oral health and ensuring a harmonious transition from primary to permanent dentition.
  • Comprehensive Care at Kidz Smile: Kidz Smile is committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care for children. Our focus on space maintainers exemplifies our dedication to proactive measures that safeguard the long-term dental well-being of your child. By addressing tooth loss promptly, we aim to minimize potential complications and support a healthy, confident smile throughout their developmental years.

Most kids tend to have accidents that cause some sort of injury while growing up. The injuries usually range from a scraped knee to a broken bone. Most of us don’t make it into adulthood without a scar, or chipped tooth. When a child falls and loses a tooth, what can be done?



Early orthodontic correction brings peace of mind, determining the need for future dental work in children. Interceptive treatment prevents severe issues by influencing permanent tooth placement by addressing jaw and teeth structure with primary teeth still present.



When a tooth has been damaged either by infection (from tooth decay) or trauma (from a knock or bump), the dental professional will provide advice as to the best treatment for the tooth. If the damage to the tooth is too great, the best option may be to extract the tooth.

Ensuring the preservation of baby teeth is crucial for oral health, as they significantly impact chewing, speech, and the proper alignment of permanent teeth. Baby teeth actively serve as placeholders, effectively preventing premature gaps that could potentially influence the final alignment. Timely attention to the loss of baby teeth remains essential for maintaining overall oral health.



If a baby tooth is lost prematurely, the potential solution may involve the use of a space maintainer to "save" the space. It's essential to understand that baby teeth serve a crucial purpose. One of the key reasons is to reserve space for the subsequent eruption of a permanent tooth, which occurs when the baby tooth is naturally lost.
