Space Maintainer


Designed to counteract the effects of early primary tooth loss in any arch, this appliance prevents teeth from shifting, which can lead to arch length reduction and subsequent malocclusion issues like crowding or impacted permanent teeth. Omega loops can be incorporated for easy adjustments.


  • Constructed from a single continuous wire.
  • Prescription or work ticket determines the appliance’s location.
  • Wire forms a loop, transitioning from the lingual to the buccal surface of the band, supporting the neighboring tooth of the space.
  • Loop maintains a 1mm distance from the tissue, 0.5-1mm from the tooth, and is spacious enough to allow tooth eruption in the gap.

Suggested Materials:

  • Blank Band-Single
  • .036 Wire Framework
  • Solder
