Premature tooth loss can cause your child’s surrounding teeth to shift out of place, causing complications for the permanent teeth. If your child loses a tooth too soon because of a dental injury or tooth extraction, Dr. Troy Hardy can provide a space maintainer to keep the remaining teeth in position until a permanent tooth fills the gap. If your child needs a space maintainer in Lehi, Utah, contact Hardy Smiles Pediatric Dentistry to speak with our pediatric dentist.
