Removal Ortho

In orthodontic treatment , preserving the space available in the dental arches for the eruption of the permanent teeth is essential during the development of the dentition in order to minimize eruption problems and ensure that teeth erupt in the best possible position.

Space maintainers

As the name implies, preserves or maintains the space already available for the eruption of permanent teeth following the extraction or loss of temporary teeth;can be a removable appliance (that can be removed by the patient) or fixed (that cannot be removed).


Adequate supervision and follow-up by the orthodontist through clinical examination supplemented with radiographs will allow early detection of developmental anomalies and eruption problems. When indicated, certain interventions may be recommended to minimize the possible impact of these problems.
