Space Maintainers

If you are not in the position to have a more traditional method to replace your teeth at this time and are looking for a temporary solution to put your mouth

into a holding pattern until you are able to proceed with a more comprehensive solution Dr. Goodlin, Dr. Shasha and the team at Smiles Dental in Aurora can fabricate a small appliance to maintain the space created by the missing tooth or teeth.

This is a much better solution than to ignore the missing tooth situation, as this will prevent the teeth from shifting thus causing the bite to be compromised leading to remaining teeth breaking, tooth loss, and joint pain.
