Holding Appliances

Tooth decay, trauma from a fall, or other accidental injury are common causes of early tooth loss in children. A space-maintaining appliance can prevent a serious malocclusion in the permanent dentition, and help maintain normal speech, function, and esthetics. For adults, proper space management is important during active orthodontic and restorative treatment.
