Space maintainers

Space maintainers
October 24, 2014 Dr Charles Daniels

Space maintainers are used to stop certain types of tooth movement and to provide additional support to teeth that bear a high burden of anchorage strain.  The appliances do not actively create tooth movement but usually the opposite – i.e. prevent tooth movement. These appliances are usually simple and robust.

I was always very conscious of the responsibility that being a professional person brings, and I have always striven to be the best practitioner I can be and advise and treat my patients in their best interest.
