If your child loses a tooth early, our pediatric dentist may recommend a space maintainer. Space maintainers help hold the place of the permanent teeth, preventing your child’s teeth from becoming misaligned and the permanent teeth from erupting improperly. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Mala Britto and learn more about space maintainers in Chantilly and Woodbridge, Virginia, call Britto Children’s Dentistry at 703-230-1000.
