What are dental spacers?
Orthodontic retention is critical for maintaining your straight smile after treatments such as braces. Dental spacers are orthodontic devices made of acrylic or metal that separate your teeth at the right intervals to promote a healthy smile. These appliances typically benefit children by holding their teeth in place after their baby teeth fall out. The spacers ensure there is room for their permanent teeth to grow in properly.
Spacers for teeth can also help adults as they preserve space in the mouth while you wait for a prosthetic.
