Primary or milk teeth in children acts as a guide for the permanent teeth in their erupting process. If the tooth is lost at an early stage, it causes tilting or drifting of neighbouring teeth in the space created by the lost tooth. So, there will not be enough space for the permanent teeth to erupt in its correct position. This may lead to malalignment of the future permanent teeth.
Therefore, in order to prevent future malocclusion space maintainers are used. Space maintainers are the appliances that helps in maintaining the space created by lost tooth. These are appliances made up of acrylic or stainless steel and are of two types REMOVABLE and FIXED(cemented onto the tooth).
