Baby teeth are important, and if your child loses one before their permanent tooth is ready to erupt, our dentists may recommend the use of a space maintainer to keep the remaining baby teeth from shifting and preventing their eventual permanent tooth from erupting properly. I you are interested in space maintainers in Sandy, Utah, for your child, please call Dentistry for Children at 801.562.2222 to ask any questions or to set up your next appointment with Dr. Erik Rooklidge and the team.
