One Band Space Maintainer
- Appliance Components
The fixed space maintainer, also known as a band and loop, is employed to preserve the space that results from the premature loss of primary teeth on one or both arches. The untimely loss of primary teeth may cause teeth to migrate mesially, leading to a reduction in arch length. In permanent dentition, this can result in malocclusion, such as crowding, impaction of permanent teeth, or super-eruption of opposing teeth.
Omega loops can be added upon request, which enables adjustments to be made if necessary.
