Abstract

Premature loss of the primary teeth is a common occurrence in children. The safest way to prevent future malocclusions is to place a space maintainer that is effective, durable and economical. Of the various fixed space maintainers, the band and loop space maintainer are one of the most frequently used appliances, but it has various shortcomings like extensive laboratory work, minimum two visit for final delivery, patient compliance, etc. In view of all these limitations, a new bonded space maintainer is being fabricated, which can be delivered in a single sitting and it also eliminates number of fabrication steps. This innovative appliance saves a lot of time both for patient and for dentist and may be proven as a good alternative to the conventional band and loop space maintainer.

Keywords: Primary dentition, space maintainer, band and loop space maintainer and bonded space maintainer
