As your child’s primary teeth fall out to be replaced by their permanent teeth, the space left behind between the teeth can close up and force the permanent teeth to grow in at incorrect angles. Dr. Philip H. Schwenk and Dr. Jaclyn Schmitt may recommend space maintainers to maintain the distance between the teeth while the permanent teeth grow in. If your child’s baby teeth are falling out, give us a call today at Philip H. Schwenk D.D.S. P.C. to see if they need space maintainers in Jasper, Indiana. Our dentists will be able to help ensure their adult teeth grow in properly.
