Space Maintainers and Retainers
Just the right amount of space.
The training of our staff at Southeast Smiles helps us identify and treat many issues dealing with growth and alignment. Recognizing these kinds of problems early allows us to keep them from becoming more serious later. Depending on your child’s situation, we may suggest the use of space maintainers or retainers.
The areas we can help with include discouraging habits like thumb sucking, monitoring and guiding jaw growth, helping permanent teeth into the correct position, and an overall improvement of both appearance and health. We are also always able to refer you to a specialist if your child needs a more advanced treatment.
