Extractions and Space Maintainers

SERVICES » Extractions and Space Maintainers

If a primary (baby) tooth is infected, removing it is the best treatment option. This prevents damage to the adult (permanent) tooth developing beneath. It also prohibits the spread of dental infection to other body parts (cellulitis).

After the extraction, the pediatric dentist may recommend a space maintainer. This is an appliance that prevents adjacent teeth from naturally shifting to inappropriately fill the new gap.
