Band And Loop Space Maintainer to Avoid Tooth Crowding

A Band and Loop space maintainer is applied to a patient to prevent future crowding of the teeth. This is precisely applied when a child prematurely loses a primary molar. The Band and Loop will hold enough space for the second premolar to erupt properly - which may not be ready to erupt for a few years.
Crowded teeth can cause future problems for a patient both aesthetically, and difficulties performing oral functions. Continuously biting with crowded teeth can cause trauma to your teeth and cause pain in your jaw. In addition, crowded teeth can make it difficult to clean your teeth properly. This can lead to tooth decay and other dental diseases.
If your child falls under this circumstance, a space maintainer is crucial for proper alignment of a child’s developing mouth.
Here is quick explanation of this process:

  • Impression of the area will be taken - which will create a replication of the area where the space maintainer will be placed.
  • A custom band and loop appliance will be created - Takes a week to be made
  • At the second appointment, it will be cemented in place. This process is fast and painless. No anesthesia is required.
