Space maintainers are intended to replace missing deciduous teeth. One of the tasks of deciduos teeth is to keep the necessary space free for the permanent teeth in the jaw. If deciduous teeth are lost prematurely, there is a risk that the neighboring teeth will tip over or move into the space, so that the path for the permanent tooth is blocked. It either erupt into incorrect position or remains stuck in the bone. To avoid this, space maintainers are important and useful devices.
