If your child loses one of their baby teeth prematurely before the permanent tooth is ready to erupt, this can cause problems for the future alignment of your child’s teeth. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Jeff Flannery, can provide a space maintainer to keep this misalignment from happening. If you are looking for space maintainers in Birmingham, Alabama, for your child’s teeth, give Oak Mountain Pediatric Dentistry a call today at 205-980-1338 to learn more.
